Classic Tyrolean charm, full of character and unspoilt scenery

Oberau is one of four small villages that nestle in the valley of Wildschönau ('Wild  Valley'), it is the smaller sister to Niederau and just 3km down the valley. With magnificant Baroque church and fine old buildings, Oberau has retained an atmosphere of old-fashioned rural charm and Oberau's hotels offer a warm Tyrolean Welcome. It retains a quiet, picturesque ambience. At 3065ft it‘s the highest of the three Wildschönau resorts, with a good snow record, and nursery slopes in the heart of the village. While the local slopes, served by seven lifts, are not particularlly extensive, big resorts in either direction along the valley are each reachable by a free bus service. Niederau (just a couple of miles away)and Auffach can also access another celebrated Austrian gem. A link between Alpbach and Auffach has produced the “Ski Juwel” resort network, with a total of 47 lifts serving some 90 miles of pistes.
