Neustadt/Harz is a municipality in the district of Nordhausen, in Thuringia, Germany.

Culture and places of interest[edit]

The area around Neustadt is rich in places of interest, which are all accessible on footpaths. Of the three castle ruins Hohnstein Castle, the oldest in the entire Harz, is the most significant. It is also worth visiting the recently renovated and protected monument of the Neustadt Reservoir (also often called the Nordhausen Reservoir), which is only about six kilometres away. There is also the Gondelteich lake and a separate forest swimming pool. Nearby is the hill known as the Poppenberg (601 m above sea level), where the High Harz begins.
