The Wildschönau with the villages Niederau, Oberau, Auffach and Thierbach is a popular holiday region. Wild, traditional and rustic is the high valley in Tyrol. Niederau is the first place to arrive in the Wildschönau and lies at 828 meters. Niederau is immediately recognizable by the pointed church steeple of his parish church and the nearby mountain Markbachjoch. Niederau is only 10 km away from the motorway exit A12 in Wörgl.


Skiing / snowboarden

Niederau has its own ski area, with valley run. There are practice slopes and 2 ski schools with children's area for the little ones. From the Markbachjoch and Lanerköpfel you have very nice runs to the village, especially red and a few black runs. In short, something for everyone and a real family ski area. Niederau also has everything: ski rental, après-ski, restaurants, shops etc. A week is over. If you want more than the ski area in Niederau, a gondola to the Schatzberg / Alpbachtal is nearby in Auffach, for even more kilometers ...

Tobogganing Wildschönau

Toboggan Wildschönau A toboggan ride brings fun for the whole family and fun off the piste. The lifts at Schatzberg and Lanerköpfl are each 5 kilometers long. The toboggan run Lanerköpfl on Markbachjoch is a sporty descent. From the top station of the Lanerköpflbahn it is five kilometers to Niederau past the Gseng and Laner Alm.

Horse-drawn carriage

A beautiful horse-drawn sleigh ride can be made from Jausenstation Foisching. Really recommended! More info/reservation:


With the gondola of the Markbachjochbahn (300 meters from the apartment) you come on top of the "house mountain" of the village Niederau (about 825 meters high), the Markbachjoch (about 1500 meters high). On the Markbachjoch you have a beautiful view of the mountain landscape, including the Wilder Kaiser and Hohe Salve, but also on Niederau. In the summer the Markbachjoch is a very nice hiking area, in the winter a beautiful ski area. Cozy meadows and huts on the Markbachjoch are: The Rübezahl Hütte, Jochalm ...


The mountains tops in Wildschönau are not just reserved for hikers or fit mountainbikers. The new e-bike trend makes longer and higher bike rides to the peaks possible for everyone. The tours are more relaxed and leave bikers more time to take in the breathtaking scenery.
The mountain pastures and huts are popular destinations. Take the mountain road to the tiny Horlerstiegl chapel via Oberau’s Roggenboden and then on to the Käse Alm. 


Paragliding in Tyrol. The Markbachjoch is the hotspot of paragliders and aviation athletes. The sky above Niederau is regularly dotted with many paragliding screens. The flight and wind conditions for air sports are particularly suitable here, because the high valley is well protected from strong winds. The starting point for paragliding in the Wildschönau is located next to the mountain station of the Markbachjoch gondola, which takes the aviation sportsmen from mid-May to October. The Paragleit Mountain is 1500 meters away. The ideal place for spectators is in the adjacent Alm.

Outdoor pool

Outdoor pool with swimming pool, sunbathing area and playground After a day of mountain holidays, a visit to the Swimming pool Wildschönau is a good tip.

The water slide at the multifunctional pool is for swimmers who like it quickly! For the smallest swimmers there is the children's pool with the pink elephant and the ...
