In the centre of the Wildschönau Valley, this is a great base for walks into the Kitzbühel Alps. To the north there are some easy paths down to Wörgl and Kundl, perfect for stretching your legs out on the first day. Heading south-east, walk up to Ferting and then Sonnerberg. Push on to the Liaglweg road which will take you to an elevation of about 1500m - from this height you’ll get some lovely views back into the valley. The hikes to the south are harder: climb up to the Marchbachjoch with an optional gondola down to Niederau. Oberau’s central location means you can get along the valley to Niederau, Auffach and the other villages with ease; there are some good hikes in Auffach from the Schazberg (gondola) with a walk or lift down to Alpbach. If you’re walking with little ones, try a less strenuous stroll along the St Francis Path or the trail from Oberau to the Riedlhof Hut.There are six Nordic tracks nearby; the Oberau to Eisstein circular route is 9.7km long and leads you above and around the town.
Whether it’s mountain biking, road biking or even E-Biking that floats your boat, you’ll find tonnes to do around the Wildschönau valley. There are 6 official MTB trails; we love the one to Mösl Alm from Niederau and the ride from Thierbach to Schatzberg is popular with the locals. Loads of other routes are ideal for exploring on two wheels and if you don’t fancy straining yourself too hard you can always E-Bike. The Kitzbühel Alps are peppered with over 50 charge points so you don’t have to worry about running out of power. Oberau is among the best bases if you want to whizz around the valley and there are plenty of great shops to hire bikes from. The Rosfeld Mountain Ring Road is fantastic for road-biking, there are a few different variants on the route, but most are quite challenging. Cycling between the pretty Wildschönau villages is just the ticket for little legs if you’ve got kids with you.
