  • Day 5: Nostalgic Ziller Valley steam train and “BrauKunstHaus”

    On July 31st, 1902, this wonderful narrow-gauge steam train made its first journey from Jenbach to Mayrhofen.

Take this nostalgic train from Jenbach to Mayrhofen and enjoy a little schnapps and some folk music along the way. Mayrhofen boasts beautiful views, as well as a pretty town centre. Why not relax with a drink, soak up the surrounding scenery and watch the world go by.
