Bebra, Germany

Guide for the rail traveller

Country Germany


With lakes, alpaca farms and herb gardens Bebra is for lovers of the outdoors. The Fulda and Breitenbacher lakes are popular for sailing, canoeing and even surfing, but there are more sedentary pleasures too in the forms of paddle boating and fishing. The town is surrounded by forest, so there are several hiking trails that take in spots like the Forbachsee nature reserve.

One of the most interesting attractions is the Railway Museum, which pays homage to the importance of the local train station – in the late 1800s Bebra was one of the most important railway junctions in the country; it later became one of the biggest border checkpoints between East and West Germany.

For those travelling with families, the Alpaca Park Waldhessen has a petting area where children can stroke the animals, while the SolzToy Museum has over 4,000 toys from the 19th and 20th centuries.
