Daily steam trips to the Zittau Mountains

The Zittauer Schmalspurbahn narrow-gauge railway provides a varied programme of themed trips and package deals cleverly combining a trip on a steam train with the sights of the Zittau Mountains.

One special treat is two steam trains leaving Bertsdorf station together; a spectacle that can only be experienced here on the 750 mm track.

An open panoramic carriage is a particularly lovely way to explore the region, and the tasty meals in the dining car build up hikers’ strength ready for their next activities. Travellers also get the chance to journey back in time to past eras of rail travel on our “time-travel” trains.

As well as the scheduled daily steam train services, the Sachsenzug, the Reichsbahnzug and the Zittauer Triebwagen run on alternating weekends between May and October.
