No-one does German steam like Railtrail. For the very best steam action whether it be Plandampf, Steam Festivals, Steam Depots, standard or narrow-gauge we simply offer more content than anyone else.
A brand new steam tour with a unique twist as we combine fabulous mainline steam, heritage steam depot, vintage trams, a brewery and beautifully traditional German Christmas markets in the picture box imaged towns of Germany's rural heartland. Plus the UNESCO World Heritage attraction of Wartburg Castle.
Enjoy a special New Year tour as we steam through glorious Black Forest scenery in its magical winter setting on three included steam excursions! We also spend New Year's Eve in beautiful Freiburg and tour the city at the 'Gateway to the Black Forest' by vintage tram.
Germany's timeless Harz Mountains are arguably even more spectacular in winter with the towns half-timbered houses and snow dusted forests resembling a picturesque Christmas card scene. For 2020 our popular Harz Winter Wonderland tour has been extended to 7 days to include an extra day to explore beautiful Wernigerode. We have also added an extra date for 2020 due to the 2019 date selling out so quickly, don't delay, join us on a narrow gauge and mountain railway adventure to warm your Harz.
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.
