Vulkan Express

Germany

Taking over an hour to travel just 11 miles, the Vulkan Express is all about sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the ride. Travelling between Brohl and Engeln the line first opened in 1901 but it was forced to close in 1961 due to the dwindling freight services.
 
Luckily for us though, a group of rail enthusiasts appealed for it to be reopened as a tourist train, and in 1977 the Vulkan Express carried its first load of commercial passengers.
 
Passing volcanic rock formations and fairytale castles, it’s no surprise that the Vulkan Express remains a firm favorite with tourists to this day.
