Discover the Wildschönau valley

Highlights

The traditions and unique characteristics of the Wildschönau Valley make it a very special part of Tirol.

Walking on the high pastures

The Schönanger Alm at the very end of the valley is the starting point for the highest mountains in the Wildschönau region, Breiteggspitz, Gressenstein or the Grosse Beil. The river runs through the high pasture to cool off in after your walk. A show dairy is located here, producing prize winning cheeses

Another dairy on the Markbachjoch Mountain in Niederau offers weekly guided tours and a taste of the delicious milk and cheese made there.

Thierbach

Thierbach, the smallest and most idyllic village in the Wildschönau Valley has just 160 inhabitants, a handful of houses and two hotels. The picturesque church and the majestic Gratlspitz Mountain behind it has no equal.

 

Kundl Gorge

The Kundl Gorge has to be one of Tirol's most beautiful natural ravines. From Mühltal a gentle path winds it's way along the Wildschönau River to Kundl in the Inn Valley.

Museums & St Francis' Path

In the Wildschönau's museums you can learn about culture and curiosities of the life of a mountain farmer, the local timber industry and silver mining.  The beautiful sculptures along St. Francis' Path are an ode to Creation and dedicated the Canticles of St Francis of Assisi.
Halfway along the path is the Z'Bach Farming Museum.
The fascinating Wood Museum is located in Auffach and in Thierbach is the tiny, ancient Lehlenlahn Silver Mine.

Typical Wildschönau

Tradition plays a large part in local life. Wildschönauers love their customs and folklore.

Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau

The Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau ski resort is one of Tirol's top 10.
Lying in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps the resort boasts 109 km of pistes, 45 lifts and 24 cosy huts strewn around the mountain.

Idyllic Villages

Four villages make up the Wildschönau community, each with it's own beautiful church. Niederau, Oberau, Auffach and Thierbach are their names and every one is charming in it's own way.
A particular gem is tiny Thierbach. It has a church, a school, two guesthouses, a handful of farms and a total of 160 inhabitants!
