The way to experience the Harz!

The way to experience the Harz!
It’s hissing, it’s steaming, it’s thudding … through the heart of the magical mountain world of our Harz, past the romantic Selketal valley, all the way up to the Brocken.

We, the Harz Narrow Gauge Railways, are one of the world’s last great steam adventures, with 25 steam locomotives. On our 140.4 kilometre, 1000 mm gauge network, experience our steam locomotives in action every day.
Experience this network – made up of the Harzquerbahn, Selketalbahn and Brockenbahn – which offers you so many superlatives in the very heart of Germany. Discover nature and culture on a trip on our steam trains; one of the biggest attractions in the Harz, Germany’s most northerly low mountain range!

Steam legends and technological wonders
25 steam locomotives in one place, 10 of which are in service at any one time: unheard of these days, except in the Harz! Our steam locomotives display historic technology close enough to touch, and from a wide range of types; from the Mallet articulated locomotive from 1897 to Europe’s most powerful narrow-gauge steam locomotives, dating from 1955 and 1956. Our historic stock also includes two multiple units from the 1930s and a luxurious saloon wagon, to name just a couple of examples. Modern multiple units and a wide range of diesel locomotives are also part of this varied and interesting fleet. Those interested in technology can visit the historic workshop from 1926, look over the train staff’s shoulders during the trip or even complete an ‘amateur engine driver’ course themselves.
