The narrow track railway has connected the villages of the Upper Salzach Valley on the edge of the biggest nature reserve in the Eastern Alps for over 115 years. Many of the 40 stops are perfect starting points for day trips into the natural and cultural treasures of the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Pinzgau Gras Mountains and the Kitzbühel Alps. The modern trains cover the 53 kilometres between Zell am See and the Krimml Waterfalls every hour. Just hop on board! Leave your car where it is or just
change over from bike to train: many destinations are within easy reach on the Pinzgau Local Trains.
You can buy tickets directly on the train without any extra charge. Our train attendants will be happy to help and advise you.
