We will have an exclusive guided tour and get explained all the processes a model has to go through from the drawing board to the finished locomotive.

    Day 5, Tuesday, April 18

    We are on our way to Stuttgart. The easiest sightseeing is the Hop-on Hop-off bus, which will bring us to all the attractions the city has to offer. I definitely would recommend the Mercedes Museum, were we can spend a few hours. Also, an excursion up the TV-tower will be a highlight. On the way back to the train station we will see a fantastic model train layout called Miniaturwelten, depicting Stuttgart and its surroundings.

    Day 6, Wednesday, April 19

    Heidelberg, one of the most picturesque cities in Germany. So, while are staying here we should explore this gem. We’ll have professional guide showing us his (her?) city. This will include the castle, the old bridge, the old town, the student jail and some of the churches. After the tour, you might like to take the funicular to have a look from the above.

    Today, we say goodbye to Heidelberg. We are taking a train to Dortmund. I picked the scenic route which will bring us there without any transfers. We will travel from Heidelberg, via Mannheim, Mainz, Koblenz, Bonn to Cologne (so along the Rhine) and from there to Solingen, Wuppertal to Dortmund. The rest of the day is for your own leisure. Maybe you want to do some shopping or just rest.
