Oberau is located in the heart of the Wildschönau on the sunny side. The village is in a beautiful, wooded area at 936 meters altitude. Its central location makes it an ideal base for a great winter. On the slopes it is quiet which makes this village perfect for beginners. Cross-country trails run through the village. Just outside Oberau is a museum about the work of mountain farmers and the Erste Tyrolean Holzmuseum explains all about the relationship between wood and people. An unforgettable experience is the night skiing on a floodlit piste. You can also find great après-ski bars in the village. Oberau is an ideal destination for people who love an idyllic winter landscape without much fuss.
