2017-04-06 | Special steam train rides and how to get to the Dresden Steam Engine Festival 2017

Special steam train ride at the Dresden Steam Engine Festival From 7th to 9th April 2017 the annual Dresden Steam Engine Festival takes place. This year, the event, placed in the Dresden city centre, is about “public transport through the ages”. To make sure you do not miss any special steam train ride, we would like to inform you about timetables and how to get to the festival site.

Our AugustusTours Team supports the 9th Steam Engine Festival: We staff an information desk in Dresden main station where we also sell tickets for the festival site. We are looking forward to your visit at our stand! Furthermore, we would like to present you the timetables for the special steam train rides listed below. Besides we have some hints for you in case you wonder how to get to the festival site.


Besides, you can expect a varied program around the steam engines: There is the possibility to experience railway operations with the historical steam trains or to visit the exhibition of vehicles in the Transport Museum Dresden. Advisable is on the one hand a walk along the Zwickauer Straße where a lot of railway associations present themselves and where you can buy equipment concerning the subject. On the other hand, you can bring the day to a close with the Dixieland concert “Dampf und Dixie” on Saturday.
