Embedded in the typical scenery with numerous half-timbered houses, the Hotel zur Post is only a few metres away from Wernigerode's market square. This well-known place marks the centre of the so-called "colourful town" Wernigerode. From here, the sights of the old town can be reached on foot in a very short time.

A short walk of only about 1.3 kilometres leads to the Castle of Wernigerode. But the hotel is also an ideal starting point for more extensive hikes in the Harz National Park.

And if you would like to go a bit faster, the train station can be reached in a good ten minutes by foot. The tracks of the historic steam locomotive run directly past the old town. Its train station at the Westerntor is just also just a few metres away from the hotel.
