The Selke Valley Railway is the 1,000 mm railway in the lower Harz mountains that originally belonged to the Gernrode-Harzgerode Railway Company . The Selke Valley Railway main line connects the towns Quedlinburg and Hasselfelde, passing through Gernrode, Alexisbad and Stiege. There are also two branch lines: one connects Alexisbad with Harzgerode, the other connects Stiege with Eisfelder Talmühle, on the Harz Railway.
Between Mägdesprung and Albrechtshaus, the track passes through the valley of the river Selke, hence the name was given to the track.
