Narrow gauge steam in Saxony III

24. - 29. March 2019

Narrow gauge steam in Saxony III

Narrow gauge steam in Saxony III

Already in 2016 we made the first round trip to the Saxon narrow gauge railways and met with great response from the railways and our customers, because nowhere else do you get so much narrow gauge railway compressed in such a short time. The longest journey is worthwhile, as many photographers and videographers from Japan, Canada and the USA have proven to us.

This time we offer a 6-day visit to 6 lanes - we have prepared a special photo and video programme for each one. We start in Annaberg- Buchholz in our proven tour hotel, from where we start with our comfortable tour bus every morning and return to the hotel in the evening. To the middle of the program we change to Dresden to head for the last three narrow-gauge railways. Our tour ends in Dresden, where you can easily travel home by train or plane or spend another day or two in the charming Elbe metropolis.
