Railways and Railway Museum – A Journey in Time-Typical Surroundings

Travel like in grandfather's time and hop on the old steam locomotive from the 20th century for an adventurous journey through a fairytale landscape along the narrow-gauge railway to Lundsbrunn. The rumble of the tracks, the smell of coal smoke, and the fantastic view from the window are exciting for both children and adults. Upon arrival in Lundsbrunn, you can enjoy a cup of coffee at the railway café, open on all traffic days. In addition to delicious pastries, the café offers souvenirs, films, and postcards for sale.
