      Ski Juwel - Winter Holidays the Austrian Way

      4 mountains, 2 valleys, 1 winter experience for the whole family - in Ski Juwel fun on the slopes meets Alpine charm and Austria's prettiest villages.

    Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau in Tirol truly is a gem of a ski resort: Located less than an hour’s drive from Innsbruck, it has retained all the original, down-to-earth charm that makes Alpine skiing so beloved. The winter resort is one of the most beautiful ones in Austria, and also one of the ten largest in Tirol. Spend a fun family day on the slopes, explore the fairytale-like villages such as Alpbach – officially Austria’s “most beautiful village” – and Niederau on the foot of the Markbachjoch, or try tobogganing, winter hiking and test your skills at a snow park.

    Hotels and guest houses in this resort are especially family-friendly, so you and your little ones will instantly feel at home. Head on a different winter adventure every day, enjoy all the traditional delights at Ski Juwel's 25 mountain huts, and admire the stunning vistas from one of the many viewpoints.
