The Germany by Steam Adventure will take you through varied natural landscapes — high mountains, river valleys, lush farmland and rolling hills — that are matched only by classical architecture, charming and vibrant cities and towns, and sites rich with both early and modern history. Experience the thrill of large steam locomotives thundering through winter landscapes at full track speed, the comfort and efficiency of Germany’s modern, expansive high-speed and conventional network of trains, and the warmth and hospitality of an Old World holiday season.
Immerse yourself in two enchanting classics of the holiday season: German Christmas markets and steam trains. Embark on a weeklong yuletide journey that will include rides behind five different steam locomotives and time to shop and enjoy at eight Christmas markets, while also experiencing some of the world’s newest rail lines and most modern passenger trains. This odyssey will create magical memories to last a lifetime.
