Steam Railway Route in Saxony

Take a nostalgic tour and discover Saxony from a different perspective. The 650km Steam Railway Route, a relatively new scenic route in Germany, is more than just a railway timetable. The route follows the network of old narrow gauge railway lines, some of which have been preserved as part of the region's cultural heritage, and it connects a host of remarkable holiday regions: Muskau Heath and the winter sports resort of Fichtelberg, the Erzgebirge mining area and Vogtland's 'musical corner', Saxon Switzerland National Park, the baroque Moritzburg Palace near Dresden and the Zittau Hills nature reserve.

Only in Saxony can railway enthusiasts and other visitors enjoy daily tours, at any time of year, on a narrow gauge steam railway and see the region without the need for a car.
