Saxon-Bohemian National Park Railway
The U 28 National Park Railway connects the two national park regions of Saxon and Bohemian Switzerland. It travels from Děčín, via Bad Schandau, Sebnitz, Dolní Poustevna and Mikulášovice dolní nádr. to Rumburk. The cross-border line thus provides access to destinations in the Elbe Valley, the Sebnitz Valley and the so-called Schluckenau tip.

A railway has been running between Bad Schandau and Sebnitz for over 130 years. At that time, the distinct mountainous character required masterful railway construction. Thus, 7 tunnels and 2 viaducts, curves and valley sections as well as a difference in altitude of about 200 metres characterise the 15.5 km long line. Today, modern railcars offer the highest level of ride comfort, for example to Mittelndorf or Rathmannsdorf - places that are ideal starting points for hiking and climbing tours through the Saxon Switzerland National Park.
