The Wildschonau offers a good selection of family-run hotels and bed-and-breakfast guesthouses and a choice of three villages – Niederau, Oberau and Auffach. While for many years Niederau was the best-known village in Wildschonau and a popular choice for beginners, Auffach at the far end of the valley is recommended because of the gondola lift that connects Wildschonau with Alpbachtal. 

Ski Accommodation in Niederau

Niederau, the first and largest of the Wildschonau’s three villages, offers a wide selection of accommodations including some relatively large 4-star (at a pinch!) hotels favoured by tour operators and enjoyable skiing on Markbachjoch (21km); best suited for novices and improving beginners.

With fewer apres-ski attractions or distractions, the smaller villages of Oberau and Auffach are relatively unknown to skiers outside Austria and Germany and too small for package tour operators, but a good bet for independent travellers searching for ski accommodation conveniently close to Wildschonau’s biggest and best ski area and in a more peaceful setting
