Took a ride down from Krimmel Falls as part of a Leger coach tour. What a lovely ride down through the valley on a beautiful modern, spotlessly clean train. Excellent value for money.

Took the historic steam train from Zell am See to Krimml. Lovely trip, beautifully kept locomotive and old carriages. Leaves time for a quick trip up to see the spectacular falls and a bite to eat before returning to Zell. Lovely day out.
