Saxon Switzerland / Eastern Ore Mountains

Kirnitztschtalbahn (tram) – OVPS GmbH (Public Transport Company)

Bad Schandau – Kirnitzschtal – Lichtenhainer Wasserfall

A tram journey in the national park …

Operating only one tram line, the OVPS is Germany’s smallest tramway company and the only one that enters a national park. Since 1898, the Kirnitzschtalbahn tramway has been carrying hikers, tourists and spa guests to their destinations in the wild, romantic Kirnitzschtal valley, along the bizarre rock formations of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains to the Lichtenhain waterfall. Along the route, a number of restaurants await their guests.

The motor trams, which are already about 50 years old, are admired not only by tramway enthusiasts but also by visitors to the Saxon Switzerland, who love to take a slow, peaceful ride on this tram with daily service.
