Ortseil train tickets in Austria

Jump to last reply

We have finally settled on a winter ski trip including St. Anton, Kitzbuhel and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Son skis, DH and I sightsee by train in surrounding towns. After countless hours of research I finally decided we would be best off getting Ortseil Senior tickets for individual rides. From that research, I understand that the first class tickets we buy will be good for any train going to my selected destination, i.e. I do not have to book a specific train leaving at x, only a ticket to my destination so that I may take a train at x, y, z or whatever time suits me.

Given that flexibility, my question is this: Since some of the places we want to see are stops along a line to a destination, can we, using a ticket to say an ultimate destination of Werfen, get off at St. Johan in Tirol and/or Zell am See which are intermediate stops on that route, walk around and see the town a little and then get back on for the next train or even the one after that, etc to move on using a single ticket for a stop or two on the way to our final stop? Or must I purchase separate tickets to each destination along the way, i.e. one ticket from Kitzbuhel to St. Johan, another from St. Johan to Zell am See and yet another from Zell am See to Werfen?

Thanks much for any help you can provide.
