We went on an excursion from a cruise, and combined it with a visit to the Minster. The little Molli train is quite nice, and it wasn't too expensive, but it was a pretty short journey, it was a bit cramped on board so you...More

What a fabulous nostalgic trip in a steam railway with its lovely old carriages. What surprised us more is that went straight through the Main Street of the town. You could just about touch the shops, it was just lovely trip.

The Molli is the oldest narrow gauge steam train in the world that has been in operation more or less since 1886. If you are a train buff, this is a must visit. It is a short trip (15.4 km) from Bad Doberan Station to...More
