Microsoft wants Germans to ride the 'Surface Love Train'

A few days ago, Microsoft used the Grammy Awards as their latest platform to promote the Surface. Now there's word that the company will be offering some folks in Germany a free ride from Hamburg to Munich aboard (and we are not making this up) the "Surface Love Train".

The Surface Germany website has the details on this new marketing scheme from Microsoft. Basically, anyone interested in taking a free ride between two of Germany's biggest cites can sign up on the page (obviously, there will only be a limited number of spots available). The trip begins in Hamburg on February 14th, which also happens to be Valentine's Day. The train will make stops at Cologne, Frankfurt and Ludwigsburg before arriving at Munich later that same day.

Microsoft is promoting the event as a way for German singles to find that special someone on Valentine's Day. Naturally, there will be Surface tablets to use while riding the rails and Microsoft will also provide free snacks and drinks along with some "surprising" entertainment. The trip appears to be one way so it's up to the passengers to find their own way back home once the "Surface Love Train" ends its trip in Munich.
