Chiemsee Railway in Prien

Chiemsee Railway (1887) in Prien, Germany

It is pretty old: The Chiemsee Railway (Chiemseebahn) dates back to 1887. Though this railway doesn’t exactly meet the definition of a tramway, it is considered the oldest still operating steam tramway in the world.

The railway links the railway station of Prien am Chiemsee with the shipping pier at the Chiemsee. From there, the beautiful  Herrenchiemsee Palace (Schloss Herrenchiemsee) is only a boat trip away.
