Journey with Santa Claus

Unfortunately, the St. Nicholas trip has to be cancelled due to ongoing, urgent renovation work on the infrastructure. We thank you for your understanding and hope to be able to offer you an attractive programme of trips again next year.

Santa Claus is travelling by steam train this year!

Every hour, a steam train travels across the grounds of the former marshalling yard. Santa Claus has announced himself as a special passenger, who will hand out small gifts to the children during the journey. The railway museum is also open. There will be a guided tour of the vehicle collection about every 30 minutes, and special exhibitions will also be open.

You can buy antiquarian railway literature in a special souvenir shop. In addition, there is a range of cold drinks, coffee, cakes and hot sausages, as well as mulled wine and children’s punch.

Admission fee (for the railway museum, without train ride):

Adults 8,00 €
Children (4-14 y.) 4,00 €
Families (2 adults + max. 3 children) 20,00 €

Steam train ticket: additional 5.00 € for adults and 2.50 € for children aged 4-14.
