Zillertal Railway

This narrow-gauge railway was originally planned in 1863, but did not open until 1902. The line runs for 18 miles between Jenbach and Mayrhofen, and services remained popular for many years, especially among tourists, for the great views of the Tyrol region.

In the mid 1960s, the railway was threatened with closure. However, the owners pulled off the feat of not only managing to stay open, but also of increasing their services. The line has stayed open at its entire original length to the present day. In 1993, the last operating steam engine was finally withdrawn from standard service. Although most services are powered by diesels, some steam engines are used occasionally at special events.

Tyrolean All Inclusive: Austria’s Breathtaking Alps

“Tyrolean All-Inclusive Holiday - lots of really good points about this holiday. The hotel was good, room was clean and quite spacious, with a sofa and a balcony as advertised. Meals mostly very good but the two buffet evenings did not cater for my wife’s coeliac disease and we had to pester to obtain gluten-free food. Packed lunches were fine and they kept the gluten-free packages seperate from the other lunches. Flies in the restaurant were a problem but the cafes in town were blighted with the same problem. Trips were very good, especially Salzburg and the ZillerTal railway. On the Berchtesgaden trip three of us did not go right to the top of the Eagles Nest because the weather was poor and low cloud obscured the views, but we spent time in the museum located at the coach drop-off point. This was excellent and Rail Discoveries should make more of this as an option. Travel outwards was hugely disrupted by poor weather but the return journey was fine. Our tour guide earned her money! The evening meal on the last-night stop-over was disappointing - there was obviously something containing gluten as my wife was quite ill for several hours.
