The Schleifkottenbahn is a 6.5 kilometer long railroad line from Halver-Oberbrügge to Halver. It has been owned by the private Schleifkottenbahn GmbH since 2000 and has been maintained and cared for since then. To finance the maintenance costs, the line has been used as a Draisinenbahn since 2015 to enable as many people as possible to experience the historic transport infrastructure.
The line is open all year round. Departure times are (by prior reservation) daily at 10 am, 1 pm and 4 pm. A ride on the Schleifkotten Draisinenbahn is a great nature and culture experience for families, groups, company outings and celebrations. There is also the possibility to take advantage of additional offers such as archery or a barbecue buffet and beverage service. An overnight stay in the sleeping car is just as possible as a combination with the Halver climbing forest or the Herpine outdoor forest pool.
Highlight of the trip: With the trolley through the 304 meter long Sticht tunnel!
