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.
