Totally enjoy Riesa! Our Riesa rail “Stahlmax” is driving now for more than eleven years on the nearly 2,5km long shopping street and covered more than 200.000 km since then. The rail shuttles (Wednesday to Friday) between the giant’s hill and the Town Hall square. Therewith the guests can comfortably discover the city.
For the ride in the rail traffic, adults (15 years and older) pay 0,50 Euro per single ticket.
Furthermore there are transported for free:
- Members of the Stadtbahn Riesa e.V.
- Children up to 14 years
- Handicapped people
- Strollers with children and rollator
- The entrainment of bikes is impossible
People also like to book it for private events or city tours. But Stahlmax also transmits city history, when the rail does a special ride. The occasions extend from family meetings and club rides to company parties. There is a festive or convivial part of the event or you simply do it to enjoy Riesa to the fullest. Who likes to experience it especially entertaining and informative, can choose between different variants of the city tour in the office of the club. In close cooperation with the city museum and the RIESA INFORMATION the tour leads you to historical and to modern sights. The stations extend from the Nudelcenter over the business park of the former steel plant, the sculpture on the giant’s hill and the sumo wrestlers in front of the erdgas arena to the chapter hall of the former monastery in the Town Hall. City tours are bookable at the RIESA INFORMATION. Especially popular are the different rail-souvenirs. Their proceeds are used for the financing of the driving. Those are also available in our RIESA INFORMATION or in the internet in the “Riesa Shop”.
