The Weißeritztalbahn connects three different natural regions; thus, for its landscape diversity, it is regarded as one of the most beautiful routes in Europe.
The Weißeritztalbahn, running from Freital-Hainsberg to Kipsdorf in the Eastern Ore Mountains, is one of Saxony's oldest narrow gauge railways offering a public service.

The Weißeritztalbahn also offers special thematic trips. Tickets for the steam railway are available in the Bürgerhaus Kipsdorf, which is located in the station building. This is also an ideal starting point for hiking or cycling tours.
