Genuine steamtrain, well renovated. Ideal alternative for car or public transport if you are staying in Bad Doberan or Heiligendamm. First (or last) stops are through center of Bad Doberan.

Enjoyed the trip on Molly! It is very quick and runs through the picturesque countryside. Drink a little bottle of bubbly on the train, even with it's own custom label.
