Take a Ride on the Berlin-Wrocław Railway

The Kulturzug (“Culture Train”) is the only direct connection from Berlin to the Polish city of Wrocław, formerly the German city of Breslau, and one with a formidable history behind it, as the route was one of the very first long-distance rail connections in Europe, going all the way back to 1842.

I was lucky to have one of the last rides on, ominously enough, Friday, March 13, one day before Poland closed its borders and suspended all international rail and air connections due to the coronavirus outbreak.

So while we all telework and practice social distance, pour a coffee, set your Spotify to Michael Nyman’s Musique à Grande Vitesse, and enjoy a virtual tour of the route and the magical city of Wrocław.
