An attractive village centre with a decorative church, an idyllic landscape together with the natural jewel of the Windau valley, and endless possibilities to relax and enjoy sporting activity. The pleasant village also has many shops, cafés and restaurants with sunny terraces and lovely walking trails.

A fabled creature, crossed between a mountain goat and a deer, bounds around the Brixental. Everything that he feels is not correct, and for which there is another possiblilty, is signed in some way. The Woipertouringer gives advice, and wherever he happens to appear, whether on hiking route signs, warning signs, brochures and magazines, he asks for your attention and also that you follow his guidance. He will reprimand any rule breakers, and that should be enough to make any person careful.
Such tours in the mountains should only be undertaking with the correct equipment, satisfactory conditions and proper guidance. Please stay within the marked routes and make sure you are fully informed on the weather forecast and avalanche prognosis.

Après-ski comes from the French for “After Skiing” but is now used universally and refers to the socializing that is popular after a days skiing ends. When the sun goes down is when the ski resorts come alive and enjoying a steaming mug of hot Chocolate laced with rum or a glass of hot Gluhwein whilst watching the sunset over the snow covered mountain peaks is a memory which will last a life-time.
