Excellent! Discover what happened 600 years ago! Come and join our maid for a scenic steam train ride from Zittau to Oybin with its medieval castle and monastery ruins. The lords of the castle will welcome you and grant you admission. You will get an insight into the every-day life at the castle. You will also see pits, murder holes and learn facts about the use of weapons. The tour will end with a knightly wine tasting in den vaults of the monastery church ruin.

The package includes the return journey on the Zittau narrow gauge railway, a hike with the maid or servant, admission to Oybin Castle and Monastery, a historical tour with the lords of the castle, and beverages and snacks at the end of the tour.

Please note that the tour is offered only in German.
