The “Rasender Roland”, the Rügen spa railway, is an integral part of the townscape of Putbus. The narrow-gauge railway starts every day from Putbus-Lauterbach in the direction of Göhren, the most important stops are the town of Putbus, the spa towns of Binz, Sellin and Baabe and the final stop in Göhren. The Granitz hunting lodge is also a recommended stop, which can be used to visit the castle.
The locomotive announces itself from afar with a loud whistle and lots of smoke, thus attracting the attention of guests and locals alike. The Rügensche Bäderbahn has two diesel locomotives, 6 steam locomotives and various freight, baggage and passenger coaches, as well as a historic traditional train that is primarily used for special trips.
It was given its name in the 1960s, with „Roland“ supposed to convey a certain sense of security and „raving“ is a rather ironic term for the locomotive.
In the high season, in summer between May and October, the „Rasender Roland“ runs every two hours from Lauterbach-Mole. In the remaining months, the train mainly starts from Putbus station.
Of course, bicycles can also be taken along for an extra charge and a reduced ticket is also available for your dog. Incidentally, railway and technology enthusiasts can also ride in the driver’s cab of the locomotive and accompany the engine driver after prior registration.
You are welcome to have your individual offer made by the Rügensche Bäderbahn. It doesn’t matter whether you want to hold your event in a traditional, saloon or dining car or whether you want to plan your day trip in your own special train, many things are possible.
The „Racing Roland“ is a special variant of local public transport to plan and experience unforgettable excursions.
For individual routes or in combination with the White Fleet Bodden trips. The “Water & Steam” combination ticket is a very attractive offer in terms of price. Enjoy a day of scenic beauty on the island of Rügen by ship and train, if desired also in combination with your own bicycle. How could a day be more filled.
