Ziller Valley Railway
See an alternative side of the Tyrol on today’s exciting optional excursion. We travel to the town of Jenbach were we board the Ziller Valley Railway. Sit back and relax as the old locomotive takes you on a historic journey through the panoramic Ziller Valley.
The Zillertal is one of Austria’s most famous narrow railways. It was opened on the last day of 1902 and has been in operation ever since. Nevertheless, the line was almost closed in 1965 as tourism and goods traffic was not enough to keep it open. Thankfully, it was saved by the construction of the Schlegleisspeicher Dam high in the mountains. The building of the Dam required 325,000 tons of cement and ballast, all of which was transported on the Zillertalbahn.
We arrive at the beautiful ski resort of Mayrhofen where we will be met by our coach and transferred to Fugen for an included lunch at a typical Austrian Inn. After lunch we travel to the town of Rattenberg and to the Kisslinger glass factory. Here you will be given a glass-blowing demonstration and see some glass carving and painting in progress.
Please note: a diesel engine will operate the train journey.

Today we include a visit to Salzburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Austria. The city dates back to Celtic times and prospered in the Middle Ages on account to the salt industry from where the city derives its name. The city is famed in the world of music, as the setting for the film 'The Sound of Music'. It is also home to the Getriedegasse, one of the most beautiful shopping streets in Austria.
To make the most of your visit why not join our optional sightseeing tour accompanied by local English-speaking guide. The sightseeing tour is a walking tour lasting approximately 90 minutes and takes in many sights and attractions of this famous alpine city. A visit to Salzburg would not be complete without a mention of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and before the tour is over, we see his former birth-house and also the square that is named after and dedicated to the famous composer.
Later this afternoon, spend further free time in Salzburg or why not take a trip to the impressive Salt Mines at Hallein on our optional excursion? Here you learn how the enterprising Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau (1559-1617), was able to extract a huge amount of precious salt through the technical innovation of wet mining. This fun guided tour, which lasts approximately 70 minutes, starts with visitors donning overalls and boarding the pit railway into the mine. After a short ride, you head along the caverns on foot for approximately 1km with the guide providing informative commentary. For the more adventurous in the group, you can take the wooden slide down to the lower level of the mine! We then board a boat for a short trip across the underground lake before returning on the train to the surface.
Please note: Sturdy footwear and warm clothes are needed for this excursion as the temperature in the mines is a constant 7° to 10°c. This excursion is not be suitable for people with walking difficulties due to the amount of walking involved. Due to the nature of the attraction there is no possibility of talking wheelchairs.
