Zillertalbahn

Our outstanding journey on the Zillertalbahn (or the Ziller Valley Railway) takes us on a 19-mile route from Jenbach through the grandiose mountain scenery to Mayrhofen at the other end of the valley. The trip begins at Jenbach station - one of the very few stations in the world to be served by lines with three different gauges. From here our narrow-gauge train turns southwards, and enters the broad valley floor. Here the scenery is superb; the lush, flower-filled meadows and striking farmland spans in both directions to the base of the snow-dusted peaks a little further off. Our journey continues past clusters of classic Tyrolean villages, with traditional wooden Alpine chalets and frescoed buildings, as well as decorative churches.

Keeping the meandering River Zill in sight, the Zillertalbahn continues on past slopes of thick forests and fertile fields - whilst the rocky peaks continue to provide an arresting backdrop to these beautiful scenes. After an unforgettable journey on this magnificent railway, our train arrives in Mayrhofen, with its charming cobbled streets and collection of cable cars for further exploration of the surrounding mountains.
