25. - 28. April 2019

Slovakia: Spring on the Cerny Balog forest railway

In the middle of Slovakia there is a forest railway, which still has 4 operational steam locomotives in museum use. Two of these machines (U 45 and U 34) are ideally suited for use in front of our charter trains. These are made up of several wooden trucks and two covered passenger cars, as used by the forest workers on their way to their deployment sites. The wooden trucks are partly loaded to allow different train combinations.

For all those who do not want to travel to Slovakia by car, we offer the joint arrival and departure by train (optionally from Berlin main station) or by plane to Vienna. From there the Tanago tour bus will pick you up.
