Overview of Niederau

Niederau is nestled in the shadow of the Markbachjoch Mountain. It’s a particularly popular location with families looking for holidays to Austria, but it’s also well suited to adventurers and explorers on romantic adventures.

It’s a great spot for kids because a tourist train winds through the village and visits all the main attractions, so they’ll never have to walk too far. But, if you want to lace up your boots and explore, you can head up the Markbachjoch gondola and hit the hiking trails.

Things to do in Niederau

Set in the rolling Austrian hills and close to Niederau’s centre, the Pension Hannes is in a great location if you want to explore the local bars and shops. In the evening, many of the restaurants serve Austrian and Italian cuisine, while karaoke bars and upbeat clubs are located near the gondola for people who want to keep the party going.

Head to the Markbachjoch gondola to explore further afield – it only takes eight minutes to get 1,500 metres above sea level. When you reach the mountain station, trails stretch out in front of you and the Rosskopf and Feldalphorn peaks are not too far away.

The Pension Hannes is a great base for an Austrian stay. You’ll quickly fall in love with the beautiful scenery that surrounds you.
