Bike Touring Highlight
The former Lichtenberg train station now houses the information center for the Franconian Forest Nature Park. The station building is a small single-storey half-timbered building and is a listed building. In 1986 the entrance building, threatened with demolition, was extensively renovated. In front of the building there is a (somewhat oddly arranged) short train on the former track, consisting of a steam storage locomotive (Babelsberg 1969) given as a gift from the Rosenthal pulp and paper factory a few kilometers away in 1993, a passenger and a baggage car of the Donnerbüchse type a boxcar. Like the station building, the vehicles are also listed. In the station building, you can marvel at a model railway that reproduces the course of the Höllentalbahn in the Selbitztal between the Lichtenberg and Hölle stations.

The Franconian Forest Nature Park Information Center is located in the former Lichtenberg train station, great and absolutely worth seeing exhibition. Bring some time to watch films or enjoy the interactive exhibition. The information center also houses a model railway system that reproduces the course of the Höllentalbahn in the Selbitztal between the stations of Lichtenberg and Hölle. Flyers and overview maps, toilets, a train ensemble and a Bavaria - Entdecker stamp station complete the positive picture.

The former station Lichtenberg is located just a few meters on the Bavarian side behind the former border and was part of the railway Triptis - Marx green. The total distance is interrupted in several places. However, reactivation is discussed. At the station itself, there is a lot of information about the region, or it is also a good starting point for excursions into and around the Höllental.
