The Ziegenkopf is a hill, 400.7 m above sea level (NN), near Blankenburg in the Harz mountains in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt.

Geographical location[edit]

The Ziegenkopf lies just under 1 km southwest of Blankenburg and about 200 m south of the B 27 federal highway to Hüttenrode.

Observation tower[edit]

Over 100 years ago an observation tower, 30 metres high with a stone base and wooden upper storey, was erected on the summit of the Ziegenkopf, with good views over to the famous Brocken. Next to it is a hilltop restaurant.
