Book an European Autumn Tour with Railtrail and let the train take the strain.
We have rejigged our French Riviera tour a little in order to bring in one of France's best-known heritage railways. We still visit St Tropez by boat and take the scenic coastal train to Monte Carlo and Nice, but this time we also feature steam on the Train des Pignes!
This October the Austrian Railway Society at Ampflwang opens its doors with a steam festival. A week later sees a rare steam excursion on the Mariazellerbahn Railway. In between we feature more steam on the Achenseebahn and Zillertalbahn, Innsbruck's Nordkettenbahn, the Gmunden Tramway, the Traunseebahn, boat trips on idyllic Austrian lakes, a brewery and a schnapps tasting!
Great value and a great railway holiday featuring the famous 'Rhine in Flames' fireworks event and a plethora of attractions varying from riding scenic branch lines through vineyards, Germany's oldest rack railway to a 'dragon's castle', plus a scenic, possibly steam, ride on the Vulkan Express train, a vineyard visit with wine tasting and of course, we've timed this trip to coincide with the sensational 'Rhine in Flames' celebration at Remagen.
A great rail holiday to discover picturesque medieval towns and villages surrounded by a panoramic range of stunning mountains, romantic valleys and fairytale woods - full of folklore, fascinating history and superb steam trains.
