We have just returned from Zell am see, every time we visit we go on this train ride. This time we on the nostalgia train, so a lovely steam ride up to krimmel. Well worth it..

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.

We took the normal local train to Krimml to see the waterfalls and it was perfectly fine (around €21 return including the bus up to the waterfalls). Amazingly for us Brits they were doing some track repairs so there was a bus replacement service for...More

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.
