The Razende Roland is the well-known nickname of the Rügen steam train run, the Rügensche Bäderbahn. The steam train travels via Binz to Göhren. It is a narrow-gauge track that is exclusively driven by steam-driven narrow-gauge trains. During the high season, the train after Göhren continues to Lauterbach Mole. This train station has existed since 1899, nowadays the railroad has only one more tourist function to connect the well-known seaside resorts of Rügen. The journey by train is already an experience. The train does not go faster than 30 kilometers per hour, which does not really honor his nickname. But the nostalgia is high and that is what many tourists from abroad and abroad are very keen on.
