“Bargain 3 day pass”
Review of Harz Steam Railway

Harz Steam Railway
Ranked #5 of 22 things to do in Wernigerode
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 January 2018

None of the info either on-line, or in HSB publicity, note the bargain 18 Euro 3 day pass which is currently on offer. This may be an out of season only deal. It covers the entire HSB network, with the exception of the Brocken, all the buses in the Harz region and local towns, and all the trains within the region run by HEX, the local operating company. A trip up the Brocken also allows for a 50% discount on ay other route taken within a week, but it needs to be purchased at the same time. However, any long trip on the HSB costs more the 18 Euro 3 day ticket, so it's worth buying just for a day's visit. It's hard to work out exactly what the deal involves, since none of the HSB staff speak English.

This our 10th time on the steam train upto the Brocken including the train on Christmas Day including meals. Fantastic day out, well worth the price.

Had a day in the railway which was great. As part of an organized trip we were supposed to go up The Brocken. It's was snowing lightly when we set off but got heavier as we went up. Just over half way up we were told because of the weather the train would not be going all the way up. Our guide organized for us the go on another if the line to Eisfelder. The trip was amazing in the snow and very seasonal. Because of the change we didn't have a food stop so this was a little gruelling. All in all a nice day but a little stressful without food and drink. One tip: get a 3 day travel card a reduces the price by about half!!

We boarded the train to The Broken
It was snowing lightly when we left
Really beautiful scenery getting more snowy as we went
Half way train could go no further due to thick snow further up
So trip cancelled. Our guide got us transferred onto different trip Eisfelder,
What a treat for Stream Train enthusiasts there were at least 4 steam trains in operation.
Lovely winter wonderland scenery gets you in the mood for Christmas
Really worth a visit

This place has become a bit of a regular fix for me,I think I have now been in all seasons and every time it offers something different.
For me not knowing the steam age back in the UK this is probably the closest I will ever get to 365 day working railway.
The Railway itself is a fantastically diverse in its running from the “Brockenbahn” with its steep gradients and deep forests to the Harzquerbahn with deep wooded valleys and the gentle Selketalbahn with its more pastoral outlook.
I would highly recommend this as an attraction for the whole family.
