Oberweissbach Mountain and Schwarza Valley Railway

A real treasure lies hidden in the wild and romantic Schwarzatal, the Oberweißbacher Bergbahn. It is the only mountain railway that can transport standard-gauge passenger and freight wagons and not only makes the hearts of railway fans beat faster, but nature lovers will also get their money's worth. In the summer months you can enjoy the 1.4 km long route with a 25% gradient in an open wagon, let the fresh air blow around your nose and listen to the lively birdsong. In the Bergbahnland, visitors also discover the princely carriage, the Maschinarium adventure museum, the Froebel forest and, in the summer months, the Olitätenwagen (wagon in which you can learn about local oils and buy them).
