This was fab. Great views over the bridges you cross. Really enjoyed this ride. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys nice views and train rides on a steam train.

Yes the views are very good. ... but the out and back train ride is nothing special. Most of the ride there is no view at all, just steep embankments or tunnels. Also quite expensive at 10€ 50 cents per adult. There are several tunnels........More
