Nice jump

The nice jump in Herrhausen am Harz

It rises on the western edge of the Harz in the so-called Nettesprung. The karst spring is located on the outskirts of Herrhausen am Harz (district of Seesen ) below the Netteberg. It is a small spring pot that is typically bluish in color.


Immediately after their source the Nice underpass by a passage the Herzberg-Seesen railway . It flows northwards through the northwestern Harz foreland and the Ambergau in the Innerstebergland .

The Nette passes these mountain ranges: Heber and Harplage in the west and Hainberg in the east. It flows through the places Herrhausen am Harz (source), Bilderlahe , Rhüden (districts of Seesen ), Bornum , Königsdahlum (district of Bockenem), Bockenem and Holle . Finally, the river flows north-northwest of the Hainberg near Derneburg , a district of Holle, into the Innerste .

Especially after the snowmelt in the Harz Mountains, the Nette often caused floods, which led to some damage in the villages through which it flowed. For a number of years now, this risk has been significantly reduced through the creation of smaller flood polders and flood retention basins in the floodplain landscape between Seesen-Bilderlahe and Seesen-Rhüden.


The river name Nette means “river in the lowlands”. It is related to the rivers Nidda and Netze .
