The Radebeul–Radeburg Railway is one of the oldest narrow gauge railway lines in Germany. The nostalgia-invoking steam trains run every day on the 16.6 kilometre route from Radebeul Ost to Radeburg via Moritzburg.
The narrow gauge trains begin their 16.6 kilometre journey every day from the Radebeul Ost station in Radebeul, known for its wine and adventure novelist Karl May. Once past the romantic Lößnitzgrund area, it climbs a few metres and puffs its way through the Moritzburg marshlands.
En route it crosses a causeway cutting through the middle of Dippelsdorf Lake. Shortly afterwards, the line reaches Moritzburg, with its baroque hunting lodge. In Moritzburg we recommend a detour to the game reserve, to the old lighthouse, and to Little Pheasant Castle.The "Lössnitz Dachshund" then steams onward via Cunnertswalde to Radeburg. This is the birthplace of a true Berlin original, illustrator Heinrich Zille, who you can learn more about in the local museum.
