Escorted Rail Tours to Jenbach

A popular Austrian rail waystation

Jenbach is a small town in the Tyrol region of Austria lying just south of Lake Achensee, known primarily as a way station for several railways: the Zillertalbahn, Achenseebahn cog railway and the Österreichische Bundesbahnen (ÖBB). The town is surrounded by beautiful scenery and a plethora of walking trails. Many little shops, bars, restaurants and cafés line the streets of Jenbach.

In the 15th century, Jenbach experienced a great economic upturn, seemingly mainly for mining. The first railway here in the town was a basic one from the mine in 1882. Yet mining took a downturn in the town following the First World War, when Jenbach passed into the possession of the Republic of Austria. For a relatively small town, it became quite a large railway centre, and is the only railway station in all of Austria that has all three gauges running through it.
