Welcome address by the patron, Stanislaw Tillich,

Industrial heritage as a leisure attraction for the young and the young at heart - Welcome to the Saxon STEAM RAILWAY ROUTE
Saxony not only is rich in cultural assets, but also boasts an amazing natural and scenic diversity and remarkable industrial heritage.
The Saxon narrow gauge railways are one trademark, which makes you feel like you were breathing in the vapor of the old days. A a ride on such a train drawn by one of the historic steam locomotives is a chance to experience Saxony from a completely different angle.
This unique heritage along with numerous attractions on both sides of the tracks has thus merged into a new vacation road: the Saxon STEAM RAILWAY ROUTE. On more than 650 km, the Free State is waiting to be discovered from its most beautiful sides and new perspectives.
As Patron of the STEAM RAILWAY ROUTE, I would like to invite you to Saxony and look forward to your visit.
