So what's it like?
Niederau and the Wildschönau Valley host over 300km of marked walking trails. These range from a nice, flat walk along the valley into Oberau or for the more energetic, hike up to the top of the Grosser Beil at 2309m, the highest peak in the Wildschönau Valley. The mountain gondolas make access into the higher trails very easy and the tourist office organise a weekly guided walking programme - one of the numerous benefits of the Wildschönau All-Inclusive Card.
