“Steam-based trips into the mountains daily”
The steam-powered narrow-gauge railway is the perfect way to explore the scenery. En route from Zittau to Oybin or Jonsdorf, the train passes stunning sandstone rock formations and picturesque villages of timber-framed homes nestled in the hills.
The train chugs on. Now we are in the “open view and dining car.” The train charges ahead on the tracks, with the Zittau Mountains speeding by to either side. Tunnel after tunnel, curve after curve – just as it has done for 131 years.
