Train through the Alps

One of the most beautiful railway tracks I can imagine is the “Brennerbahn” (Ferrovia del Brennero) crossing the Alps from Germany via Austria to Italy. It dates back to 1864 and has a maximum inclination of 25%. While the train goes in slopes through the mountains you can sit back and enjoy wonderful views. Especially in winter time the fir trees loaded with snow look great.

At the top there is the Brennero railway station and the locomotive  has to be changed. Therefore you have a small stop within the Alps. The trains start at Munich, Germany and pass via Rosenheim, Kufstein and Innsbruck to Brennero. In Italy the next most interesting stops are Bozen, Trento and Verona (Porta Nuova). Dependent on the schedule the trains then mostly continue to Venice or Rimini.
