Following great 2019 feedback our Golden October Austria Steam Adventure is back and it's a big one!

A rare opportunity to travel almost the whole of the Harz Mountains system by steam capturing the golden autumn colours. Add to this a private 750 mm steam charter, standard gauge steam at a very rarely visited location, and view a former DB steam depot and its collection we have a truly great rail holiday to rediscover the beauty of German steam in golden autumn colours.
Great value and a great Railtrail railway holiday featuring the famous 'Rhine in Flames' fireworks event and a plethora of attractions varying from riding scenic branch lines through vineyards, Germany's oldest rack railway to a 'dragon's castle', plus a scenic, possibly steam, ride on the Vulkan Express train, a vineyard visit with wine tasting and of course, we've timed this trip to coincide with the sensational 'Rhine in Flames' celebration at Remagen.
