From the state capital Innsbruck the route takes you to the city of Hall. In the 15th century Archduke Sigmund of Tyrol moved the princely minting of coins from Merano to here. A short time later the first high-quality silver coin with the dollar minting was struck here. Today Hall inspires with an enchanting old town, the largest in Tyrol. The next town has also achieved world fame: Wattens with the Swarovski Crystal Worlds attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world to Tyrol every year. Medieval flair awaits you in the silver town of Schwaz, which has lovingly and magnificently preserved many buildings from the heyday of silver mining. The Schwaz silver mine was one of the most productive in the Middle Ages and is now open to visitors. A little further on at Jenbach station, trains with three different gauges meet, including the famous Achensee railway, the oldest steam rack railway in Europe still in operation.
