For those who prefer a more leisurely pace of travel, you can also get here by rail and bus. There are international trains to Zell am See or Kitzbühel, from where regular scheduled bus services and the Pinzgauer Lokalbahn railway (currently from Niedernsill to Krimml rail replacement service) run to Krimml. The section of motorway from the German border to the Kufstein Süd exit is toll-free.
