The historic express train with dining car takes you south. If you like, you can have breakfast in the dining car from 1935, and when you arrive in Saalfeld on schedule you can change to buses that will take you directly to the legendary Fairy Grottoes. Spend magical moments in the magically colourful cave landscapes of the former alum slate mining gallery. Families explore the fairy world with the fairy top castle.
Those who prefer to reach high altitudes stay on the train and travel on to the enchanting Schwarzatal. At Obstfelderschmiede station you have the possibility to change to the mountain railway: First you take the funicular up to the top, and when you reach the top, the railcars on the flat section remind you of the old Berlin S-Bahn trains … A short hike through the tranquil high valley or a rural stopover round off this day trip before you start your return journey to Berlin.
