Ffestiniog Travel is featuring four escorted tours to Germany next year, aimed at rail enthusiasts, that explore the country’s steam, train and tram treasures.


As examples, an eight-day Harz Winter Gala, which departs on February 10, leads in at £1,200 per person and gives clients the chance to visit the Harz Mountains in Germany and ride the world-renowned Harzer Schmalspurbahnen (HSB). Based in Wernigerode, the rail holiday is an ideal option to explore the former East German area when it becomes a snowy winter wonderland.


A 16-day Eine Kleine Dampfmusik departs on May 27 and September 16 and leads in at £1,840. The itinerary travels across Europe by train to take in the sights of Germany with visits to Bonn, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Rostock and the Harz Mountains.


Alternatively, guests can opt for a 15-day Tramways of Germany tour which departs on September 16 from £1,990. The escorted tour indulges people’s passion for trams whilst enjoying the culture and hospitality Germany has to offer, with visits to Essen, Hannover, Leipzig, Berlin and Cologne.
