Train and Steamboat Rides, Deer Park
Bad Kissengen's little train

The Kurbähnle, Bad Kissingen’s little train, has been one of Bad Kissingen’s firm fixtures for many years. You can board the train at regular intervals at the roundabout next to the Kurgarten and will be assured of a pleasant trip to the deer park Klaushof, where you can see many native European and more exotic wild animals, some of which are endangered species. Some of the favorites are the wild boars, lynx and also the deer who will eat of your hand – if you let them! Enjoy a meal or refreshments at the Klaushof restaurant next to the park. The neighboring woods are also lovely to walk around in.

On 7th July in 1877 the first steamboat, appropriately named Kissingen, was delivered to the spa resort by train. Everyone delights at the sight of the steamboat moving up the middle of the majestic Saale river on one of its hourly trips between the Rose Garden and the Saline. A pleasant afternoon trip for families with children is a ride up the Saale to the Salinenblick Café, where you are not only served a wonderful variety of reasonably priced meals and snacks on the outdoor patio but can also take part in a round of crazy golf.
