    Day 1, Wednesday, January 29

    Chicago-Frankfurt

    We are leaving Chicago late afternoon on our non-stop flight to Frankfurt. Cocktails and dinner will be served en route.

    Day 2, Thursday, January 30

    Frankfurt-Lichtenfels

    One hour before landing they will serve breakfast. After checking through immigration and customs we will board our ride to Lichtenfels. After checking into the hotel the afternoon is free for your own activities. We are just 5 minutes away from the station, so you can walk over there for your train-watching. We will meet for dinner at 7:30 and probably call it a night after that.

    Day 3, Friday, January 31

    Nürnberg-Toy Fair

    We start right away with The Highlight of the tour the ToyFair. For any individual that likes toys, trains, Christmas ornaments or any hobby related products this fair is a must.  Visiting the Toy Fair is a rare opportunity, because it is not open to the public; our guests are allowed to visit the fair because we get them in as employees. The fair is a treat for our eyes.  The manufactures booths are incredible with all the new products, all the layouts and dioramas – we will be like kids in a candy store.


    Day 4, Saturday, February 01

    Nürnberg-Toy Fair

    Many of our guests requested a 2nd day at the Toy Fair. So here it is. For everybody else we will stay in Nürnberg this day and you can visit the transportation museum or any other sites. Some of you want to do some research at the transportation museum’s library. Let us know, what you are looking for and we can make arrangements to have those documents pulled ahead.


    Day 5, Sunday, February 02

    Lichtenfels-Meiningen

    This is definitely another highlight of our tour. The locomotive repair facility is the last institution in Germany which is able to repair steam locomotives. They have orders from all over Europe and are booked for many years to come. 



    Day 6, Monday, February 03

    Lichtenfels-Vienna

    Well our days in Bavaria are over and today we will head to Vienna. After we settled in our new hotel, we give you the rest of the day off to relax or do as you wish. Our hotel is close to the Vienna Westbahnhof, so for all of our train watchers you can walk there and watch the RailJets, express and commuter trains.


    Day 7, Tuesday, February 04

    Vienna Sightseeing

    There is so much to see in Vienna that you can spend many days doing so. We had a lot of good experience with those Hop-on/Hop-off services. Therefore we will use them here too. Some of the must-see sights are the Stephan’s Cathedral, The Schönnbrunn Place, the opera house and many more. I will have a list for you of all the places you can see at all the 15 stops.


    Day 8, Wednesday, February 05

    Vienna-Mariazell

    On all of our ToyFair trips we are going on a narrow gauge train ride. This time we take the famous Mariazeller Bahn. We take the Railjet from Vienna Westbahnhof to St. Pölten. This is just a half hour ride and most of the time we are in a tunnel, but we will reach speeds of over 220 kmh. In St. Pölten we have to board our narrow gauge train which brings us within 2 hours into the foothills of the Alps. Mariazell is famous for its cathedral which brings thousands of pilgrims to this little town every year. Even the last 2 Popes visited that jewel tucked away in this sparsely populated area of Austria.


    Day 9, Thursday, February 06

    Vienna-Abbey Melk

    We will spend the last day of our tour in Melk. Abbey Melk was the spiritual and scholastic center of Austria for centuries. Within an hour the train will bring us from Vienna to Melk. Our guided tour will include the Imperial Rooms, the Marble Hall and the library. We will have dinner in Melk and hit back earlier, so you have enough time to pack and get ready for our return flight.

    Day 10, Monday, February 07

    Vienna-Chicago

    Like all good things, this tour will come to an end today. Breakfast is really early in the morning with hotel check out to follow. We will transfer to Vienna Airport and fly back home.
