Parking at the station in Jenbach is free if you are going on this train. Simply drive past all the parked cars to the end where you will find the car park. Using the Silbercard plus meant the return journey for us was free otherwise...More
A highly over-rated experience!! Having said that the conductor was the most interesting part of the ride!!! He was punching tickets while we travelled and had interesting stories to share...But definitely, not a must do.
