From Innsbruck to Frankfurt (Main) by train

One of the daily ultra-smart Railjet trains from Innsbruck on the beautiful route to far-western Austria, has had its journey extended into Germany, thereby providing a relatively new direct rail journey from Innsbruck to Frankfurt (Main).
And on the new timetable, which commences on December 10th, there will also be a new direct ICE train - which has a faster journey time, and offers a mid-afternoon arrival.
