History

Braunlage started out as a pit settlement in the forest first mentioned as brunenlohe in a 1253 deed, which was revived, when the Counts of Blankenburg established anironworks in 1561. With the County Braunlage fell to the Duchy of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel in 1599. In the 17th century it was a small market town, finally in 1934 it received town privileges and the municipal status as a health resort.

In 1963 it became the location of the longest gondola lift (of Northern Germany), with a length of 2.8 kilometers and a height difference of 400 meters to the mountain station on the Wurmberg mountain, see Wurmberg Gondola Lift.
