With a historic steam train ride to the cave theater

Embark on an exclusive adventure trip in which the “Mountain Queen” – our historic steam locomotive 95027 – puffing up one of the most impressive slopes of Germany will bring you at full steam into the heart of the Harz Mountains.

Your adventure trip through the beautiful and worth seeing Harz landscape starts at 1:50 p.m. at Blankenburg main station. After arriving at Rübeland train station at around 2:30 p.m., the path leads you into fascinating dripstone scenery of the Baumanns Cave, past stalagmites and stalactites that are thousands of years old.

On Germany’s most beautiful underground natural stage in the Goethe Hall, a one-hour play from the current theater program awaits you. At the end of the performance the “Mountain Queen” will bring you back to Blankenburg at around 4:15 p.m.
