The romance of the rails is alive on Fichtelberg. You can enjoy the magnificent view between the health resort of Oberwiesenthal and Cranzahl, a distance of 17.35 km. You traverse 238 metres of elevation, 5 bridges and a viaduct on the route into the highest city in Germany, the Oberwiesenthal health resort. The trip in the elegant atmosphere of the buffet car, where you can enjoy a light snack or cake and coffee, is a special experience. The young and the young at heart can even take a turn driving the train. From there you have the best view and a glance into the technology from that era.
From May to September, you also have the opportunity to become familiar with the Erzgebirge in a whole new way in a four-hour evening programme: whether a drive by moonlight or a night time drive to Suppenland– you will experience an exciting evening with the romance of the steam railway, a guided evening hike, the romance of the campfire, hand-made mountain music, a stop for supper and other points on the programme.
The employees of the Fichtelberg railway will inform you of their individual dates for the events and the actual programme. Send your questions and requests for reservations to:
