Selke Valley Railway

This quaint railway is arguably the region's best-kept secret. The route ascends into the Harz Mountains through a varied landscape. This metre-gauge railway was dismantled by the Soviets at the end of World War II, but was then subsequently rebuilt as far as Gernrode in the post-war years. With reunification the Selke Valley Railway, or Selketalbahn, was acquired by the Harz Mountain Railways and the line finally extended to Quedlinburg, allowing greater tourist access to this nostalgic journey through dense forests and mountains.

“If you like Steam Trains and Snow this is an amazing trip. Many Steam Train trips. But Clip on studs that go over your shoes ie 'Crampons' should have been recommended for the top of 'The Brocken' as it can be treacherously icy. We saw many falls. The surrounding towns has some wonderful buildings and appears almost desolate. Very little is in English so you may need to rely on a guide, especially in restaurants. The escort was wonderfully organised and most necessary, especially with organisation and signage as despite what we think the train services in Europe are not too different to ours regarding efficiency and sometimes very much worse. Also having a central point/hotel in Wernigerode from which to explore the area meant we only had to unpack once to enjoy all the different trips. Being old we were surprised to find we could manage much of what was available to see and the guide took care to ensure we were catered for. You can very much imagine it was still part of Eastern Germany when it was controlled by Russia. Strongly recommended. Without a professional guide we would have missed a lot.
