In 400 years of mining operations, over 300 pits for ore and silver mining have been created in and around St. Andreasberg. At the end of 1777, prince poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe began his first trip to the Harz Mountains, which took him to the Brocken mountain and the Samson mine, among other places, in order to find out about mining as minister of mining at the Weimar court. He drove laboriously over ladders into the "Samson" pit in St. Andreasberg. On foot, he had to cope with a difference in altitude of 810 meters, i.e. 3,000 rungs. How exhausting this was, he noted in his diary: "I was very angry this time." In 1783, Goethe visited the mountain town again and hiked along the Rehberger Graben, among other things. The local "Goetheplatz", a former quarry that was voted "Geotope of the Year" in 2010, is evidence of this. Goethe's encounter with the Harz mountains should not remain without consequences for the mountains as well as for himself and thus also world literature: later the Harz appeared in Goethe's "Faust", where the Brocken is described as Blocksberg, and in the poem "Harzreise im Winter", that was created right after his first trip. And the shades of the snow on the Brocken are said to have inspired him to some of his famous color theory.

Welcome to the Royal Head Forester's Office Andreasberg, in short: kofa1895! The venerable forester's house with its spacious office rooms has been home to our first holiday apartment, which extends over two floors, for around 10 years. In addition, the former office rooms on the ground floor have been carefully renovated over the past few months. Another holiday apartment has been created here, so that we can now use the living space in "Apartment No. 1" (ground floor, up to 6 people) and "Apartment No. 2" (1st floor) . and 2nd floor, up to 12 people). The apartments are bright and friendly and offer - if required in a package - plenty of space for large families or holidays with good friends. The furniture has been carefully and sustainably modernized over the past few months. Thanks to our careful renovation with building materials that are healthy for living, body and mind can recharge their batteries here without hesitation. Both apartments have a fully equipped kitchen with dishes & amp; Cutlery and a shower room as well as a total of three toilets. In the basement of the house there is also a sauna area with shower and loungers for relaxing. And if necessary, a washing machine and dryer are also available to guests. Bed linen and towels are included with us! Opposite the house is the large historical barn with workshops, exhibition and seminar rooms and - in proper style - a game room. Right next to the barn you will find a large open pavilion with a garden pond, which invites you to relax, grill or eat under a roof. The large garden extends around the whole house and offers several areas to sit and relax. There is a separate barbecue area, a large dining area and a sandpit for smaller visitors. A maximum of two dogs are allowed on request (please specify "model" and size). Two bowls and a large dog bed are available. It goes without saying that your four-legged friends have to sleep in their place - beds and sofas are taboo, otherwise we have to invoice these costs for the increased cleaning effort or damage. We are very proud that the kofa1895 is the first holiday accommodation in the Upper Harz that is certified as climate-neutral and "sustainable holiday property" according to the standards of the climate sponsorship CO2. Our guests can contribute their share through a climate-friendly vacation. When using the house, we attach great importance to environmentally friendly and climate-friendly behavior. These include, for example, waste separation (according to paper, glass, yellow sack & amp; residual waste), the conscious use of energy & amp; Heating etc. or the economical use of drinking water.

Both Apartment No.1 and Apartment No.2 have a modern kitchen, so that self-caterers can get their money's worth and swing the wooden spoon. Both are equipped with a stove, oven, microwave, but also a coffee machine and a refrigerator; Apartment No.2 also offers complete barbecue equipment for the barbecue masters among you. Comfortable places are available to take the food. To fill the fridge, you can do some shopping at one of the many grocery chains in the area. Or you can support regional producers and purchase their products in organic shops such as the organic health food store Surmann or the Viva organic market. At Goslar Unverpackt, the name says it all: here you can or should bring your own containers, e.g. for the weekly changing lunch menu. In the shop of the Bio-Hof Geyer here in St. Andreasberg there are many (gluten-free) health products, but also baking supplies, teas and pollen as well as fresh herbs and eggs straight from the farm. Master butcher Koithahn sells his Harz meat and sausage specialties in the shop in Hattorf and in the branches in Bad Lauterberg, Goslar, Herzberg, Northeim and Osterode. You can also buy steaks, bratwurst, Krakauer and cheese cracker cashless at their grill vending machine, which is open around the clock. You can find such machines in Hattorf, Herzberg, Osterode, Goslar and Clausthal-Zellerfeld, among others. You can get the right thing for washing down the delicacies in the farm shop of the Altenauer brewery: in addition to 6 different beers, an alcohol-free herbal lemonade and a malt drink. Incidentally, the Altenauer brewery is the last remaining medium-sized brewery in the Upper Harz Mountains and the highest brewery in Northern Germany. If you want to eat out, we can recommend St. Andreasberg right here, e.g. Den Roten Bären, a café with a restaurant in the mountain meadows named after the pit of the same name. The seasonal menu offers international dishes such as Soljanka, roast onions made from Argentinean roast beef or lamb fillet with Mediterranean vegetables, but also German dishes such as Maultaschen, sausage salad or Harz bread dumplings. The Butterhanne is a traditional German tavern and café right next to the Goslar market church. Mainly steaks, schnitzel, Harz game specialties and tarte flambée are served, but there are also some vegetarian dishes and sweet desserts on the menu. The Wide World - Food & amp; Wine Goslar is a whitewashed restaurant with wine specialties and international dishes from tarte flambée to chili con carne, also located at the market church. Last but not least, Goslar also offers the lovingly furnished and originally decorated inn at the Lohmühle, which is originally decorated in a traditional Bavarian style. There are German-Bavarian-international dishes from home-style cooking, i.e. bretzl, sausages, knuckles, schnitzel or rösti, but also baked potatoes, salmon and dumplings.

In and around kofa 1895 it can't get boring because of its location, because it is above St. Andreasberg and offers a great view of the town and the surrounding mountain peaks of the Harz low mountain range on the south side. Directly above the house, a little up the road, is the approx. 723 meter high mountain top Jordanshöhe, which with its extensive mountain meadows invites you to go for a walk and hike. At the same time, it is the gateway to the Upper Harz National Park, which adjoins it. With over 247 square kilometers, the park is one of the largest forest national parks in Germany. The almost 100 kilometers long, multi-day hiking trail "Harzer Hexenstieg" as well as many other hiking trails and some of the Nordic walking routes of the German Ski Association pass right by the house. In winter you can start directly from the kofa 1895 on the many trails above and around St. Andreasberg, because various cross-country trails are practically on the doorstep and some are even within walking distance. The St. Andreasberg ski center, less than 2 kilometers away, awaits you with two tow lifts and a chair lift, ski rental, etc. Attention mining fans: the "Red Bear" mine is an iron ore mine operated from around 1800 to 1860, which can now be visited as a visitor mine. Likewise, the Samson mine is a historic, even UNESCO-protected mine, which was operated from 1521 to 1910. This is where the last functional driving art in the world is located, which during operating hours carried the workers - and also Goethe - down to one of the deepest mines in the world. If you prefer to look up instead of in depth, the St. Andreasberg observatory is the right place for you. It is not only the highest observatory in northern Germany, but has also been expanded to become the first completely barrier-free observatory in Germany. Thanks to the location at an altitude of 710 meters, the air is clear and relatively free of light pollution, which allows impressive observations. And if it is too cold for you outside or you do not want to leave the house for any other reason, you can always warm up in our in-house sauna. Towels & amp; Final cleaning is included in the one-off flat-rate usage price, but only for a maximum of 8 people.

The little ones can go on a treasure hunt in the sandpit right next to kofa 1895. There are also toys and books in the house for bad weather. But if the children want to be active outside, there are also many opportunities for them in the immediate vicinity, e.g. hiking or sledding. Those who are at least 8 years old can visit the "Jangstel Jungle" high ropes course directly on the grounds of the "Jangstel Inn" at an altitude of 720 meters above St. Andreasberg. The facility is currently 900 meters long on two floors. In the summer months, anyone interested in biking will find a wide range of routes with various degrees of difficulty, for beginners and beginners as well as for experienced riders and professionals. Bicycles can also be rented or repaired at the rental and service station (contact for this: Zweirad-Busche, +49 5582 - 999 555 1 or info@zweirad-busche.de). The Matthias-Schmidt-Berg summer toboggan run is right next door. With a length of 550 meters and a height difference of 130 meters, it offers a special experience for the whole family. The mountain inn Matthiasbaude at the start of the cable car also invites you to visit with home-style and hearty cuisine, with a wonderful view of the Harz mountains. In the spa gardens of Bad Lauterberg there is a modern mini golf course with 18 holes and a total length of almost 200 meters. The local sport "soccer billiards" is also practiced there: a combination of billiards and soccer, which is played with 16 colored real soccer balls on an oversized "pool table". But there is also the option for "headies", in which two players compete against each other at the table tennis table and are only allowed to play the special match ball with their heads. The offer is completed with a shuffleboard, with which round discs are accelerated to the opposite side of the rectangular playing field with a kind of "slider" in order to remain there on marked, as high as possible point fields. And if you don't want to go to Bad Lauterberg for mini golf, you can also play the holes in the local spa gardens here in St. Andreasberg from Wednesday to Sunday afternoons.
