Schwarza valley line
Taking the prince's carriage to the funicular
In the past, the princes of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt used Schwarzburg Castle as their home during summer and the hunting season.
A regal air returns to the Schwarza valley line since May 2018, when Prince Henriette and Prince Ludwig Friedrich II take you and your family on a royal trip 300 years into the past. A trip on the Schwarza valley line gives you the chance to learn about the region's past and take part in the "prince's quiz", with the prospect of winning a surprise treat for the mountain railway at the end.
Mountain railway day tickets include travel on the Schwarza valley line.
