Frankfurt to Innsbruck by train

From the commencement of the new pan-European timetable on December 10th 2023, a new direct ICE train service will be available on the Frankfurt (Main) to Innsbruck route.
It will provide an alternative to taking the early morning direct Railjet train.
Or if the timings or prices of those direct trains don't suit, the optimum indirect journey by train from Frankfurt (Main) to Innsbruck, involves making a straightforward connection in München Hbf.
