    More about the skiing in Niederau

  • So what's it like?

    With the new connection to Alpbach - now creating the fantastic Ski Juwel area with 145km of piste - perfect for families with an excellent ski school, and superb for intermediates

    Niederau is in the Wildschönau valley – it’s picturesque and perfect for both families and beginners, with wide nursery slopes and easy to use drag lifts. There’s also the excellent Wildschönau ski school and our Pepi Nursery childcare. Snowboarders should watch out for a few flat sections and experienced skiers will probably need a little more challenging terrain. Luckily it’s a free bus ride to neighbouring Auffach. The new link over to Alpbach has opened up the Ski Juwel’s full 145km - all covered by your pass. Niederau has a nice mix of relaxed and lively après bars mostly 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.
