    The Schnarcherklippen are an impressive, two-towered granite rock formation (up to 671 m above sea level) near Schierke in the Harz Mountains in the district of Harz in Saxony-Anhalt.
    The two approximately 20 m apart and about 25 m to 28 m high rock towers of the snorer cliffs belong to the Brockengranitstock and have a significant Wollsack weathering on. (Due to the interaction of physical and chemical processes, edge-rounded blocks of rock, which are stacked on top of each other like pillows, mattresses or just like woolen sacks, are created during the weathering of the woolly sack). A special feature of the cliffs is the deflection of the compass needle from its north direction due to the presence of magnetite in the rock. When the wind blows from the south-east, the cliffs generate strange noises, which were the inspiration for the naming.
    Occasionally climbers practice on the snorer cliffs.

    South of Schierke in the Harz Mountains are the remarkable snoring cliffs, two rock towers that are about 25 meters high and about 20 meters apart. They belong to the Brockengranitstock and rise 671 meters above sea level above the Elendstal. The western rock can only be conquered by mountaineers, the eastern one can be climbed on a steep iron ladder. But you should be free from giddiness. From the top you have a fantastic view of Schierke, the Brocken massif and the Wurmberg. The best way to reach this attraction is from Schierke or to take the hiking trail from Elend through the idyllic nature reserve Elendsta in the Eastern Harz.

    The name comes from the snoring-like sounds when the wind comes from the southeast. The problem, however, is to determine the wind direction using a compass, because the compass needle is deflected by the snoring cliffs. The reason for this is the enrichment of the rocks with magnetite (iron ore) and their magnetization through lightning strikes. The snoring cliffs were also visited by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe on his third trip to the Harz Mountains and were mentioned in his works Faust I and Faust II:

    "See the trees behind trees,
    how they move quickly,
    and the cliffs that bend over
    and the long rocky noses,
    how they snore, how they blow! "

    A very impressive cliff, the climbing is rewarded with a magnificent view.
    It can be built into a hiking tour around Schierke and misery.

    If you do not see the snore, you are one 😄

    A real highlight in the region: the snorer cliffs, which even Goethe in Faust I and Faust II (and the cliffs that bend over, and the long rock noses, how they snore, how they blow!). Located between the Barenberg and the Mäuseklippen, you reach the Schnarchenklippen relatively quickly after starting in misery. Even if the ascent may seem a bit daunting: a climb is really worthwhile. From the top of the cliffs - you are then standing at about 700m above sea level - the view towards Elend, Schierke, Wurmberg and Bodetal is really breathtaking. As the ascent goes over stairs and metal steps, sure-footedness and a little head for heights are absolutely necessary.

    Impressive geological and literary-historical highlight. Due to deviations of the magnetic needle from north, Goethe is said to have been motivated by Faust.

    Always a bit crowded, because easy to reach from Schierke. The cliffs themselves can be climbed. Be it as a mountaineer or as a "normal person" on stairs.

    There are two great - and high - cliffs to admire. One of them can be climbed via a metal staircase and offers a great view!

    Those who tackle the relatively steep climb (very slippery in wet weather!) Will be rewarded with a beautiful view. The cliffs are also worth seeing from below.

    Above misery on Barenberg is the snorer cliff. This is a ladder and man has a great outlook on the Wurmberg

    It is worth going up the cliffs and there is also a stamp for the Harzerwandernadel
