The Markbachjoch in Niederau

Summer cable cars of the Ski Juwel


... and experience all of this for free with your Wildschönau Card.

You can go high in one of the largest and most family-friendly ski areas in Tyrol. But the 2 valleys Alpbachtal and Wildschönau not only have a lot to offer in winter - in summer the gondola lifts guarantee easy hiking on 4 mountains. Many other peaks can be climbed from there. The Wildschönau is related to the Alpbachtal area - in summer you have to drive around 45 minutes. Perfect for a day trip. The mountain railways are also included in the Alpbachtal with your Wildschönau Card.

These lifts are open to you free of charge in summer:

- With the 6-seater Wiedersbergerhornbahn cable car to the Wiedersberger Horn or directly to Lauserland! (Alpbachtal region)
- From the center of Reith i.A. with the 8-seater gondola to the Reither Kogel and to the Juppi Zauberwald! (Alpbachtal region)
- The 8-seater Schatzbergbahn gondola takes you from Auffach to the Schatzberg.
- From the center of Niederau, take the Markbachjochbahn to 1,500 m.

The summer cable cars in Wildschönau

Enjoy the most convenient access to the mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps. Without a lot of effort you gain altitude meters so quickly and thus reach the Schatzberg in Auffach or the Markbachjoch in Niederau. And even free of charge with your included Wildschönau Card!

The Markbachjoch in Niederau

In just 8 minutes you can take the comfortable 8-seater gondola lift to 1,500 meters above sea level. The mountain station is the perfect starting point for hikers. The Rosskopf (1,731 m) or the Feldalphorn (1,923 m) are already in sight. For a short hike to stretch your legs, a walk to the Markbachjoch chapel or the Norderbergalm is ideal. From the Markbachjoch you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Wildschönau holiday region, the rugged mountains of the Wilder Kaiser or the Rofan mountains. The Markbachjoch is particularly well-known among paragliders. From the Markbachjochalm it goes up to lofty heights for many - supported by the Wildschönau flight school. Or how about a tandem flight with “Fly2”? The Markbachjoch is also a perfect starting point for biking.

The Schatzberg Auffach

The Schatzbergbahn takes you high up. From the valley station to the mountain station (1,780 m) you only need 22 minutes in the 8-seater cable car - and with a fabulous view of the magnificent landscape. Many hikes are possible from the mountain station of the gondola lift. Popular hiking destinations include the Gern (1,981 m) or the Joel (1,964 m). The longer hike to the Lämpersberg (2,202 m) is perfect for experienced mountaineers. The circular route to the reservoir is more leisurely. Benefit from the fantastic view from the Schatzberg-cross. But there are also great routes for bikers. How about going from Thierbach to the Schatzberg?

Festivals and events in particular are something unforgettable high up on the mountain:

- In June, the summer solstice is celebrated at the Markbachjoch.
- During the Schatzberg March in mid-August, hikers can choose between different routes.

All events can be found here.

And after a successful day of hiking you have of course earned something to refresh yourself. Try a typical Tyrolean snack, sit on a rustic terrace and let the untouched nature work its magic on you. Our numerous alpine huts and mountain restaurants will be happy to spoil you.
