Full Steam Ahead

Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in week 27-32, Denmark's Railway Museum runs their vintage steam train and you can catch a ride. The engine is the museum's copy of Denmark's first locomotive, ODIN, from 1846. It has taken 14 years to build the ODIN copy, and in September 2018 the locomotive was ready. Go for a ride in the beautiful old carts on the museum's own stretch of track. History and nostalgia rule as you stand near the large steam locomotive, shrouded in smoke, steam and a scent of coal.

Departure every half hour during the time at. 10.30-15.30, however, not at. 12.30, where the driver breaks for lunch. A trip lasts approx. 10 minutes. Riding the vintage train is free for guests when the entrance fee is paid. There may be days when ODIN is not the engine in use. Instead, it will be the steam locomotive K 563 from 1899.
