Thale is a special place because it is the meeting place on Walpurgis Night. Travel on the cosy express train of the 1930s (Walpurgis Express) and back the same night.
The express train is hauled by a diesel locomotive. Take the unforgettable memory home with you and be back home for breakfast. Simply magical.

We wish you a good trip with the Walpurgis Express!
