Had to travel from Berlin to Oberwiesenthal with public transport. The final part of the trip really surprised me. I ad to board a romantic old fashioned train with 2 real heavy old steam engines!

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 deep).
