Grape harvest festival by train

Take the train with Schindler carriages, to the grape harvest on Saturdays, 9 and 23 September.

To celebrate the grape harvest, there's nothing better than learning all about the tradition and taking part in the winemaking in the Douro region. You're guaranteed a good harvest and lots of socialising and partying on a stunning journey between Porto and Pinhão in Schindler carriages manufactured in the 1940s in Switzerland, with panoramic windows that can be opened during the trip. These carriages were used on the national railway network between 1949 and 1977 and have recently been restored.

Note: As soon as possible we will publish information about the next edition.
