LocationThale, Germany

The Roßtrappe is a 403-metre-high granite crag in the Harz mountains of central Germany.

The Roßtrappe rises high over the Bode Gorge in the Harz. It may be reached from Thale by road, on foot or on a chair lift. On the rocks is a mountain hotel with an observation terrace as well as the upper station for the chair lift.

Nearby is the Winzenburg, a refuge castle 25 hectares in area with a 500-metre-long rampart made of stone blocks and earth, which has been used since the New Stone Age as a refuge for up to 100 people. In 1860 the Winzenburg Tower was built there; an observation tower which is now closed.
