Thanks to Jan Bauer for adding this peak.
The Brocken is the highest mountain in the Harz mountains. It has deeply mythical meanings as it is said to be the dwelling of the witches. On the Walpurgisnacht (Night of Walpurgis - April 30th) you can see the witches and demons dance on top of it - why not join them?
