Since November 2014 the Fairytail Express Graz travels once again through the depths of the mountain. Originally the inhabitants of Graz used the branching tunnel system as shelter during World War 2. Starting in the 1960ies visitors enjoyed rides with the old grotto railway. Much has changed since then.
Fairytales and fantastical tales have always touched people. For hundreds of years fairytales have changed and evolved. We still discover new tales and fantasy worlds through books and movies, albeit in modernized and modified versions.
During your ride with the Fairy Tale Express you will hear numerous quotations from famous fairy tales. Many of them will seem familiar to you. You will come across fairytale themes and elements, although the presentation of specific fairytale figures and fairytale depiction was omitted.
You will visit a witch's house, travel through a fairytale forest, discover a den of thieves and many things more. Enough exciting possibilities to dive into you own fairytale worlds!
For some stations your participation is needed. Explore objects using a flashlight, a giant might block your way and can you remember the phrase that opens the treasure cave? After half an hour the ride through the chilly tunnels of the Schloßberg will come to an end.
