Classic Tyrolean charm, full of character and unspoilt scenery

Austria’s Wildschönau (“wild” valley) easily accessible from both Innsbruck and Salzburg. Yet it retains its quiet, picturesque ambience. The delightful little hideaway resort of Oberau, with its colourful baroque church, has an idyllic rural charm, but at the same time access to a lot of skiing. 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 particularly extensive, big resorts in either direction along the valley are both 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.
