    Sit back and relax as the old locomotive takes you on a historic journey through the panoramic Ziller Valley on our included excursion. We start the day in the famous resort town of Mayrhofen which, nestled at the end of the Ziller Valley, is the 3rd largest community in the Tyrol. We then board the Ziller Valley Railway for our train journey to Fügen.

    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. On arrival, you will have time at leisure in the picturesque town of Fügen.
