Distances for Niederau
Distance to Innsbruck Airport:
Distance to Salzburg Airport: 126km
Distance to Munich Airport: 153km
Innsbruck airport is the most convenient for travel to the Wildschönau valley, but both Munich and Salzburg airports are also easily accessible through the excellent motorway connections to Wörgl.
Niederau can be reached by a 30 minute journey east along the Inn valley to Wörgl and then another quarter of an hour's drive up into Wildschönau and through to Niederau. Oberau is another five minutes' drive away, while Auffach is probably closer to an additional 15 minutes. Train connections to Wörgl from the centre of Innsbruck are also excellent.
Innsbruck Airport is one of the main charter hubs in the winter, but also offers a good range of scheduled flights suitable for skiers which also run on weekdays.
Salzburg Airport is less than two hours away from Niederau. There is a choice of routes: the first uses the road through the "German corner" near the airport and then via St Johann in Tirol to Wörgl and the entrance to the Wildschönau.
In snow this can be a slow route - an alternate choice is to use the German motorway to the junction with the Munich-Inn valley motorway north of Rosenheim.
Munich Airport is situated under two hours away from the Wildschönau. The airport is located to the north of the city, and the motorway network bypasses Munich to the east and then heads down to Rosenheim, where it joins up with the motorway from Salzburg, and the border at Kufstein.

Most of the hotel accommodation in the Wildschönau is located in the villages of Niederau and Oberau. Niederau tends to be more popular with groups and ski package operators, with its direct ski access and easy connections to the Inn valley, while Oberau is possibly more popular with individual travellers and is a more charming place to stay.
The settlement of Auffach at the end of the valley has a couple of hotels which offer the advantage of proximity to arguably the best skiing in the valley and the ski lift connection over to Alpbach.
