    The narrow gauge railway line was built in the years 1896-1897. The station in Oberwiesenthal is the highest station in Saxony. The station building received its present appearance in the 1920s.

    Extremely full trains - guests, monster scooters and co. That leaves only the open wagon.

    In summer it pays to be on the road very early! I only choose the tram for the way there. 😜

    You can take this nostalgic steam train from Cranzahl (DB train station) here to Oberwiesenthal several times a day and from there, depending on the season, undertake activities (hiking, skiing, mountain bike rides, monster scooter tours, etc.).

    The train station is the end point of the hike. Here, hikers who use public transport have various options for their journey home: 1. Take the Fichtelbergbahn (steam train) to Cranzahl station, from there take the DB trains through the Zschopau valley towards Annaberg-Buchholz and Chemnitz. 2. Take the bus in the direction of Annaberg-Buchholz Chemnitz and from there possibly take the DB trains in different directions. It is important that you look ahead! Beginning of the hike has inquired about the return travel options, including time, e.g. DB Navigator. The bus stop is seen from the track bed, to the left of the station building, is covered and has benches for possible waiting times.

    The final stop of the Fichtelbergbahn, the Bimmelbahnweg is worthwhile, but also a visit to the city and the Fichtelberg
