"The Boogie Woogie Summit"

It was in the 20s somewhere in the south, when Meade "Lux" Lewis - inspired by the rhythmic-powerful steam hiss – invented the boogie-woogie during the train ride to work. Almost 100 years later you can feel a flashback of the roots of boogie-woogie with this special steam train – and all this on a route which is absolutely unique (see picture above). With 3 special trains, each with two wagons, we are steaming and shaking up to the heavenly heights of 1.780m - and in each wagon a piano! Up there you can enjoy a hearty brunch and you will experiences the "Lakeshakers" on stage with the most extraordinary scenery that you can imagine. As a foretaste, have a look to the pictures of last year or the 360°-view from the top of Schafberg...!
