Special features

This train has a special family coach, designed for parents traveling with small children. The coach offers a large amount of space, making it easy to travel with pushchairs, and even a playground with climbing frames.


You can also make this trip at night, in which case you’ll have to reserve a bed in one of the added sleeping compartments. However, we recommend you take this trip in full daylight, so you won’t miss out on any of the amazing scenery.
