up to the mountaintop

Markbachjoch cable car Wildschönau

The Markbachjoch lies at an altitude of 1500 metres. The ride on the 8-seater gondola lift takes just 8 minutes. The start of the hike is directly at the top station of the cable car. From there, the Rosskopf or the Feldalphorn are already in sight. For those who do not want a long hike, a walk to the Markbachjoch chapel is just the thing.
From the Markbachjoch there is a wonderful view of the Wildschönau valley, the Wilder Kaiser with its rugged mountains and the Rofan mountains.

Paragliders cavort at the launch site of the Wildschönau flying school.
Furthermore, there is a stage of the Tirolean Bike Safari and other bike routes.

And best of all. The Markbachjochbahn, like the Schatzberg cable car, is included in the Wildschönau Card.

Sculpture Park

The mountain lake with its metal sculptures is one of the walks on the Markbachjoch in Niederau.
A total of 30 sculptures by international artists can be admired there. The park is beautifully situated around the reservoir and can be reached in just 30 minutes from the mountain station of the Markbachjoch gondola.

Right next door is the rustic Mittermoosen Alm, where guests can enjoy a delicious meal - an all-round highlight right at the foot of the Markbachjoch cable car mountain station.

Just hanging out

Specially built hammock stations promise pure relaxation and beautiful views of the mountain world.
Right now there are two hammock stations on the Markbachjoch in Niederau (behind the Markbachjoch Alm hut and on the hiking trail in the forest to the Holzalm dairy) and above the Foisching mountain restaurant in Niederau. The stations are located at beautiful vantage points.
Get out of the daily grind and plug into nature - with a hammock in the Wildschönau.

Rest stops

The Schatzberg mountain is a place for families. Inns at the middle and top stations invite you to stop for a bite to eat.
From the top station, the Schatzberg family trail, which is also suitable for prams, winds its way over the middle station to Auffach. Children can find refreshment at the Koglmoos water playground.
The playground at the Holzalm, on the Markbachjoch Alm and at the Norderberg Alm is a must for every child!
