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!
