The design concept of our Ur-Krostitzer party train


„The design of the Partybahn clearly deviates from the routine. It is a special object, unique and distinct.“ This is how interior designer Hedi Kappler summarized the modernization of the Partybahn. Inspired by the sponsor, the Krostitzer brewery, the interior design indeed follows the basic idea and color scheme of a filled beer glass. Matching the product, i.e. beer, the liquid gold with its fresh and creamy head, it is exactly these colors that can be found in the party train: gold for the seats and white for the tables. Furthermore, our sponsoring partner came up with the idea of linking the party train with shining lights from Jena, i. e. with persons that influenced the city during their lifes. 


Ride and celebrate with our shining lights


Each seating area is named after a shining light. The names are written on the roof slope above the respective seats.

Who are they, those shining lights? Here, we present you Bauersfeld, Klopfleisch, Schiller & co.:

In March 1797, Schiller bought a garden house in Jena, where he spent the summers from 1797 until 1799 with his family.
