With quaint mountain villages, rolling alpine pastures and cosy huts, Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau is the perfect spot for a wintery family escape.
Winter in Ski Juwel is about as picturesque as it gets. The villages are quaint, the huts charming and the views awe-inspiring. Spread over the tree-covered mountains of Alpbachtal and Wildschönau, Ski Juwel has 109 km of skiing to its name, offering everything from wide carving terrain to dreamy powder runs. Test your speed on the Eva-Maria Brem permanent Giant Slalom race track or work on your freestyle skills at one of three dedicated snowparks.
With all that going on, plus a great selection of ski schools, kids’ parks and childcare facilities, Ski Juwel is a top pick with families. And the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down, either: Take the kids on the Bummelzug (slow train) for an evening of tobogganing on Schatzberg or to Oberau for night skiing on floodlit runs.
The mountain villages that make up the Alpbachtal and Wildschönau are steeped in tradition, offering an authentic Tirolean experience that the whole family will love. And foodies will feel right at home; the region’s farming heritage means that you can experience Austrian food at its best. Keep an eye out for tasty local specialities like Kaiserschmarrn (pancakes) and Speckknödel (bacon dumplings), washed down with a spot of Schnapps. Just what you need after a day exploring this stunning mountain region.
