Winter holiday in Niederau

Niederau lies at an altitude of 828m and is the first and largest village of the Wildschönau.
The ski slopes of the village offer skiing fun for young and old and there are plenty of options for both beginners and advanced skiers.
From Haus Marjanne you only have to walk 4 minutes to the Lahnerköpfl cable car that will take you to the top of the Lahnerköpfl. The Markbachjoch gondola is just 450 meters from our house and also brings you up to the beautiful winter landscape. Various blue, red and black runs descend from both mountains back into the village.
Niederau offers many opportunities for beginners thanks to the wide range of practice trails that end in the middle of the village, therefore also perfect for families.
The ski area is part of the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau with a total of 109 kilometres of slopes.
With the guest card - Wildschönau Card – our guests can make free use of the ski bus that takes you through the villages of Oberau, Muhltal to Auffach. From Auffach it goes up with the Schatzberg gondola lift, from where you have access to the Alpbachtal ski area.
