Beside the steam train ride you are also going to visit the engine shed in Oberwiesenthal. Have a look behind the scenery of a steam railway company and experience many interesting things about steam trains and their maintenance during the guided tour.

The visit of the Saxon Railway Museum in Chemnitz-Hilbersdorf should not be missed on your trip. Its exhibits and documents give insights into the development of the railway traffic in the 20th century. During a small photo parade with the different steam trains you can capture your moment and take a little memory with you at home.
