West towards the mountain province of Tyrol, Austria’s grandiose Alpine scenery begins to emerge. Most trains from Salzburg travel through a corner of Bavaria in Germany before joining the Inn valley and climbing back into Austria towards Innsbruck, Tyrol’s main town. A less direct but more scenic route (more likely if you’re coming from Graz or Zell) cuts by the majestic Hoher Tauern – site of Austria’s highest peak, the Grossglockner.
