The Kirnitzschtalbahn has been travelling down its 8-kilometre stretch of track since 1898. Travelling between Bad Schandau and the Lichtenhain waterfall, “the electric” winds its way along the Kirnitzsch stream. Since May 1994, up to 30 % of the electricity for the train has been provided by solar energy. After extensive renovation work was completed in May 2004, the historic tram has once again been travelling unhindered through the beautiful rocky landscape.

|Single ticket||4.00 €||2.00 €1|
