There we switched to to the famous Flam Railway which takes one hour to go 12 miles through 20 tunnels and drops 864 meters, the steepest slope of any traction railroad in the world.

Later we went to see “2 Trux”, an amazing one woman and one man acrobatic act in the Piazza. We had seen 2 Trux on our previous cruise, but they were so good we went to see them again.
