In Austria, we travel on the Achenseebahn, a nearly 130 year old
steam train that has been running constantly since its maiden
journey in 1889. The train makes its way through the Inntal Valley
from Jenbach to Achensee, travelling 4.2 miles and climbing 440
meters. This route passes through areas of unparalleled beauty,
including the emerald waters of Achensee, the Tyrol's largest lake.
This line is also in Europe's largest nature reserve, the Karwendel
Mountains, filled with stunning mountains and wonderful Alpine
scenery. This line holds the title of being the oldest cog railway
still in operation in Europe, and some of its carriages date back
to the early 1900's.
