Niederau has a small variety of restaurants, mostly based in hotels and serving typical Tyrolean food - simple but hearty and tasty. The usual international staples can also be found all over.
• Hotel Austria - Popular with locals for special occasions, they offer Austrian dishes made using family recipes passed down through generations, as well as their own versions of international favourites.
• Pizza Ferrari - A slice of Italy that snuck across the border - take your pick from a large range of authentic pizza and pasta, as well as classic desserts like tiramisu.
• Turnip Inn - Always popular with Brits for lunch, here you can fill up on a huge range of foods from the small but varied menu - schnitzel served in a brioche bun, steak pie, chicken kiev, fish and chips, ribs and chicken wings, plus lots more.
• Gipfo Hit (Schatzberg Peak) – A classic combination of a large terrace and breathtaking views, plus a cosy open fire inside and traditional mountain food.
• Boglalm (piste to Inneralpbach) – Popular with the locals, the battered wooden beams and rustic fare give character to this self-service restaurant.
• Rubezahl-Hütte (top of the Markbachjoch gondola) – Cosy up next to the fire to tuck into familiar Austrian mountain dishes, and enjoy the view of the Wilder Kaiser.
In the afternoons, you'll find a mixture of relaxed and lively après bars around the gondola base station. After dinner, nightlife is a little more limited, though you will find a couple of places to keep your blood pumping.
• Schnappshute - Accessible straight off the snow, this is the liveliest bar in town. From Flugel parties to live music and happy hours, you won't want to leave.
• Flatscher Bar - Located on the main road near the sku bus stop, this bar has an incredible atmosphere with friendly staff and well-priced drinks.
• Dorfstub'n - There's no chance of boredom here with happy hours, darts, table football, Austrian nails and karaoke nights.
- Want to try something new? Snowshoes can be rented from Sport Thaler and Sport Blachfelder for free.
- If you're ready to move on from blue runs, try red 19 before moving on to the reds around Auffach.
Once you’ve mastered the blues at the bottom of the valley head up the M1 to Markbachjoch. There are a couple of blues up here to play around on but the real run starts with Red 19. This run winds its way down the mountain back into Niederau and is a great way to move up a level before heading over to tackle the many reds of Auffach.
