Take the oh so scary Halloween Train from Græsted to Gilleleje

A special treat for families and young children is the annual Halloween train ride 28 October. Children in disguise ride for FREE!

Normally the old steam train  runs for Christmas transporting families to cut down their Christmas tree, however for some years now a new special Halloween treat is the short ride from the small town of Græsted to the seaside resort Gilleleje.

As the event is a dark night ride on Saturday 28 October, and there will be scary guests greeting you on the way – stay vigilant.

Children in disguise ride for free – all others pay DKK 50. There are candy bags with treats for the children (until the stock runs out).

At the station in Græsted you can buy tea/coffee and cake in the waiting room – and children can buy and decorate a pumpkin. Those who buy a pumpkin participate in a lottery with great prizes.

Bring warm clothes, blankets and pillows as there is no heating either in the waiting room or in the trains!

You can pay with MobilePay, cash or Dankort at the station. If you just want to have a look at the old trains – entrance is free – only the ride requires a ticket.
