Network Railway adventure in the Saxon Switzerland

Kirnitzschtal – Rathen - Königstein – Sebnitz – Lohsdorf

Romance of the rail with view of the Bastei rock formation …

Would you like to see all of the Saxon Switzerland at once? And would you like to realize your childhood dream of admiring once a model railway? If you want to have a fun time with your children or grandchildren right in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, then you are at the right place here. Come and see, experience and marvel at the big and small rail vehicles. It is especially worth taking a ride on the Kirnitzschtalbahn tram – the smallest tramway in Germany. In addition, we absolutely recommend a visit to the “Eisenbahnwelten” miniature garden railway occupying an area of 7,300 sqm in the health resort town of Rathen.

Another attraction, the Miniature Park – “Saxon Switzerland in Miniature,” located in the village of Wehlen, shows many realistically recreated places of interest in the region. In Königstein, the “Elbtalbahn” model railway layout in 1:87 HO scale is a detailed recreation of the Upper Elbe Valley with the train traffic from Bad Schandau to Obervogelgesang. In Sebnitz, another town in the Saxon Switzerland, the model railway museum provides interesting information on the history of model railways, particularly on TT-scale trains. Then for a change, take a journey on a big train again - the Saxon-Bohemian “Semmeringbahn” railway. It will take you to the “Feldbahnmuseum Herrenleithe” (light railway museum) in Lohmen or the “Schmalspurbahnerlebnis Schwarzbachbahn” (narrow gauge railway adventure - Schwarzbachbahn railway) in Lohsdorf. So we really encourage you to explore this railway adventure network in the Saxon Switzerland.
