The Wildschönau Valley

Walking holidays in the Wildschönau

Wildschönau literally translates to wild and beautiful and that, it certainly is. Rolling hills and flower-filled meadows are interspersed with traditional rustic farms. The peaks of the Wildschönau are slightly lower than in surrounding areas, but this doesn't mean the views are any less spectacular.

A large network of hiking trails and several lifts in the valley make access easy, even for families with young children, and the Wildschönau Card offers excellent value for money, with two lifts in the valley included plus new hiker's bus. One of the most beautiful viewpoints is the Gratlspitz between the Wildschönau and neighbouring Alpbachtal, or head up to the Achentalalm below the summit of the Kragenjoch.
