Lovingly converted as a double-decker suite railway car. First floor has the kitchenette, en suite bathroom and sitting area - stairs lead up to the bedroom with its own balcony.

The space
The double-floor suites are an elaborate and very creative conversion of a railway wagon and offer ample space and maximum comfort. The roofs of the wagons of the former "Mecklenburg Adventure Train" were flexed off and laid 1.5m higher, resulting in a second floor with a large bedroom for up to 5 people. There is also a private balcony with beautiful views over the train station and a private bathroom with shower and toilet.

There are 2 wagons with 2 entrances each and thus 2 separate compartments on each side. The wagons are at our most idyllic place under trees in Schmilau, with the balcony in the middle of the tree tops on the track between the pizza oven look and the frog pond. Next door you have a swimming locomotive with sauna and hot tub, opposite the fire pit and for the children the playground.

An entire family with up to 5 people can accommodate in one compartment. There is a 3-person bed in the bedroom with double and single mattresses next to each other, accessible via a small staircase in the bedroom. Among them - in a dormitory - a single bed with a view of the station directly through a porthole at the head end. And on the other side of the room a cot (only 0.80m wide). Downstairs you have your own kitchen with sink, 2 hotplates, fridge, toaster and coffee maker as well as a seating area with dining table and couch. In an adjoining room there is a private bathroom with shower and toilet. Bed linen is provided, so you can leave your sleeping bag at home.

The double floor suite is the ideal holiday destination for active travellers, for families with children and for people who plan a longer stay or want higher comfort.

Where you’ll be

Schmilau, Germany

In the middle of the Lauenburg Lakes Nature Park, our adventure railway station is located on a former railway station site. A hotel landscape of the special class has built up here over the years. There is a colourful wagon village waiting for you. With original sleeping cars, converted locomotives and all sorts of things to discover!

Als Gründer und Besitzer der Erlebnisbahn Ratzeburg, habe ich es mir zum Ziel gesetzt, meinen Gästen hier ein beeindruckendes Naturerlebnis zu vermitteln, eine Reise durch eine skurrile Welt der Eisenbahnen und Fahrräder, auf den verschiedensten muskelkraftbetriebenen Fahrzeugen über vorgegebene Touren durch den schönen Naturpark Lauenburgische Seen.

Ich selbst wohne seit 1996 in einem Bahnwaggon auf dem Bahnhof Schmilau, im Sommer wie im Winter und lebe diesen Betrieb als Berufung oder Lebenseinstellung anstatt als Beruf.
Ganz besonders liegt es mir am Herzen, Kindern und Jugendlichen in der heutigen digitalen Welt die Freude an der sportlichen Bewegung in freier Natur wieder nahezubringen.
