Riding this steam train is an amazing experience like the other two trains in Freital and Radebeul. I strongly recommend riding this train to Oberwiesenthal. The ride is slow, relaxing and kind of jumping back in time. If you have the chance and time to...More

We drove up and down and it's a fun way to get on the views of the area. A pretty old but well maintained cabin and good stuff.

This was such a nice trip! Through the countryside in a historic train, really wonderful. You can stop off and get in again. I really would like to repeat this once with my children!

Running from Oberwiesenthal is the small guage steam railway, the Fichtelbergbahn. In the summer, you can stop off at forest locations and enjoy a picnic. In the winter, the landscape is transformed by a deep layer of snow (in many years up to 2 metres...More
