On 2nd October the special train of Eisenbahnfreunde Witten will leave Köln central station at about 6:30 a.m. heading towards Würzburg (Main). We´ll start our journey travelling through the Ruhr district passing Oberhausen, Essen and Witten. Following the winding valley of the Lenne we´ll drive through Siegen and reach Aschaffenburg, located in the franconian part of Bavaria. After that we´ll proceed our journey driving on the well known “Spessartrampe”, the gradient between Laufach and Heigenbrücken, followed by the valley of the Main , finally reaching Würzburg at 1:00 p.m.

In addition of several memorials of art and culture we are looking forward to excellent wine and the famous franconian cuisine. In the old part of Würzburg there are a lot of cosy pubs and restaurants inviting for lunch. For all of you loving trams: You have the opportunity to discover Würzburg by tram.

Some words regarding our train: The comfortable wagons are out of the 50s, the restaurant car offers warm and cold dishes. You may also order snacks and cold or hot drinks to your seat. Our diesel locomotive V200116 was build in the 60s and develops 2×1350 hp. It was designed for fast passenger trains of the German Bundesbahn.
