Part of the 109km Ski Juwel with an excellent ski school for beginners, and lots for all improvers.
- One of the four church villages in the Wildschönau, with access to the Ski Juwel’s 109km of piste.
- Fantastic for beginners, with central nursery slopes and miles of easy and intermediate runs to progress to.
- Families will love the range of non-ski activities, like sleigh rides and snowshoe walks.
Snowboarders should watch out for a few flat sections and experienced skiers will probably need the more challenging terrain of neighbouring Auffach - a free bus ride away. The link over to Alpbach opens up the Ski Juwel’s full 109km - all covered by your pass. Niederau also has a nice mix of relaxed and lively après bars around the gondola base station.
Once you’re up the Markbachjoch gondola, you’ll have great views around the Kitzbüheler Alps. Head back down after a day on the slopes and enjoy the après, including the Schnappshütte, which has free WiFi. Nightlife is a little more limited, but the Cave Bar is one of the most popular haunts, especially for karaoke.
There are also a few shops and a decent supermarket with a great deli counter - perfect for grabbing lunch on the go. For something a little different you could give horse-drawn sleigh rides a try. Families after a change of scenery should head over to nearby Wörgl for the excellent Wave Water Adventure World, home of the L2, the world’s first double looping water slide, and a modern luxury spa.
