Since the opening of the new connection lift from Alpbachtal to the Schatzberg in December 2012, the new ski resort shines under the name "Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschoenau". 46 lifts and 100 km of slopes can be experienced with just one ski pass. The Alpbachtal is an insider ski tip and one of the most beautiful valleys in the Alps. In addition to Alpbach, which is considered the prettiest village in Austria with its rustic wooden architectural style, there are eight other authentic villages waiting to be discovered, including Rattenberg, the smallest town in Austria. In Wildschoenau, the idyllic church villages of Niederau, Oberau, Thierbach and Auffach as well as the especially friendly hospitality add to the charm of the high valley. Exciting, yet relaxing winter activities such as winter hiking past picturesque farmsteads or tobogganing provide unforgettable experiences.
