To the south you can find steep mountain slopes of the Harz border with coniferous and deciduous forests, which are well suited for mountainbiking. Several deeply cutted valleys such as the Okertal or the Gosetal lead up to the Oberharz peaks of Schalke and Bocksberg. Three dams (Innerste-Talsperre, Grane-Talsperre dam and Oker-Talsperre) are also near to Goslar and shape the landscape.
