"Griaß di" in the Wildschönau

The Wildschönau holiday region in Tirol

The name Wildschönau means wild and beautiful and couldn’t be more fitting for this traditional and quaint high valley in the heart of Tirol. 260 working farms, the remote location and above all the hospitality of the local people makes the Wildschönau a very special place.

The high valley contains four independent villages, Niederau, Oberau, Auffach and Thierbach and lies in the Kitzbühl Alps.
Every one of the villages has it’s own charm. Thierbach is particularly idyllic.

Don’t be surprised when you are greeted on the streets. „Griaß di“  or „greetings“ is considered good manners even to strangers

Hospitality is the best quality of the local people and a sense of tradition is characteristic of the region. In this pastoral valley are 260 working farms.
Traditional costume is worn with pride at festivals and processions. Clubs and societies play a large part in local life. One is reminiscent of the Tirolean Freedom Fighters of Andreas Hofer known as the Sturmlöda – the Storm Troopers.

A rarity is the Krautinger beet schnapps.

With it’s well-developed infrastructure, many free time activities and hospitable hotels the Wildschönau is unique for both local people and guests alike.
