Short facts

Historic tram through the Saxon Switzerland National Park

The Kirnitzschtalbahn has been chauffeuring its passengers along a route of around eight kilometres through the wildly romantic Kirnitzschtal valley near Bad Schandau since 1898. Since 1994, 30% of the traction current has been generated by solar energy. The route of the metre-gauge tramway runs from Bad Schandau's spa gardens along the Kirnitzsch River through the rocky Kirnitzsch Valley to the terminus at Lichtenhainer Wasserfall. 
From its nine stops, hiking trails lead into the idyllic as well as mystical rocky world of Saxon Switzerland National Park.
Pentecost 2023, on 28 May, the Kirnitzschtalbahn has been chauffeuring excursionists and hikers for 125 years now - with a few interruptions.

The "Gästekarte mobil" and the Deutschland-Ticket are valid on the Kirnitzschtalbahn.
