The Zillertal

Getting there & away

The Zillertal is serviced by a private train line, the Zillertalbahn (05244-606-0; www.zillertalbahn.at), which travels the 32km from Jenbach to Mayrhofen.

Those with a thirst for nostalgia can take a Dampfzug (steam train) along the valley; it runs twice daily year-round (10.47am and 3.16pm). It takes about 85 minutes to reach the last stop, Mayrhofen, and costs €10.70 one way to either Zell or Mayrhofen. If you just want to get from A to B, it’s better to take the Triebwagen (train) or bus as it costs €5.90.
