By luxury train through the romantic Rhine Valley

Rheingold is the name of a luxury train that first travelled from the Hoek of Holland/Amsterdam through the Rhine Valley to Switzerland in 1928. Besides the river in itself, travelling by rail along the Rhine is also popular with tourists. Even today, railway and Rhine Valley aficionados still let the romantic Rhine River with its stunning landscape and its castles and palaces enchant them as the follow the tracks of the legendary RHEINGOLD train on a major part of its route.

Dome Car:   

The fully glazed observation cockpit in the legendary "Dome Car" of the 1962 RHEINGOLD train promises especially breathtaking views of Germany's most beautiful railway line. In the 1928 dining car, guests travel and dine in a particularly distinguished atmosphere. Just like 85 years ago, passengers will be pampered with good food and selected wines. In the bar or party carriages of 1972, passengers can enjoy the trip at comfortable tables for 2 or 4 persons, while the classical express coaches of the sixties make a feeling of long-distance train journeys come alive again.
