Part of the 145km Ski Juwel with an excellent ski school for beginners, and lots for all improvers.
- Traditional and relaxed village.
- Wide, open nursery slopes.
- Excellent for families.
A picturesque resort in the Wildschönau valley, Niederau has wide nursery slopes making it perfect for both families and beginners. There’s also the excellent 1st Wildschönau Ski School and our Pepi Penguin Nursery childcare. 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 145km - 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 daily special deals and free WiFi. Nightlife is a little more limited, but the Cave Bar is one of the most popular haunts, especially for karaoke and Elvis lovers.
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 tobogganing or 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.
