Rosenheim, Grafing, Aßling, Ostermünchen, Großkarolinenfeld, Raubling, Oberaudorf, Schaftenau

I'm heading again to Germany, this time in the south of Bavaria and Austria
Taking the train to Arlanda from Helenelund station in Stockholm area, here is X60
SJ Regional train
Arlanda Express
Arlanda Central station
ER1 Mälartåg
The station is located right in the central part of the airport
To get out of the station, one has to pass through the gates and pay the airport station fee of 130SEK on top of the ticket price
Arlanda airport this time of the year is quite empty, also there are still some Covid restrictions - but soon everything will change
Finnair A350 plane is now flying from Stockholm to USA
I'm taking a Lufthansa flight to Munich
2 hours later - I'm in Munich airport
Another train - this time S-Bahn to Munich
Not many people flying here too
At Munchen Ostbahnhof I'm changing trains, the freight trains are passing by one after another
I'm heading to Rosenheim, not far from Munich
The following morning, having my breakfast in the hotel. B&B hotels are offering excellent service for a low cost, after this time I've decided to use this hotel chain more often in order to save some money

Rosenheim is not a large town, but it has direct train connections to Vienna, Budapest, Bologna, Venice, Hamburg, and Amsterdam among other places - not bad
Nightjet to Innsbruck

Eurocity to Venezia Santa Lucia station

Here is a train I did not expect to see, even though I was aware about this service
It is Snälltåget direct service between Stockholm and Zell am See in Austrian Alps, hauled here by two Class 111 locomotives (at each end).
The train do not stop here in Rosenheim

111 226 and 111 057, both from Smart Rail Gmbh
Class 111 is the classic DB locomotive from the 70's, today only used by some private railway companies

Munich-Rosenheim railway is part of the Brenner route to Italy, so there are many trains here
