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 of skiing.
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.
Especially romantic is a horse-drawn carriage ride through the winter landscape, when the snow grinds under the wheels.
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, Kropfraderjochalm (only open in winter) and Käsealm (only open in summer).
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 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 heated facility is located between the villages of Oberau and Niederau on the easy Franziskusweg route. The sports pool for swimming and the multi-purpose pool for baths and splashes offer more than 1000 m² of water surface. There are spring confrontations at the sports pool. 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 playground with sandbox, trampoline, climbing tower and suspension bridge.
