Easily one of Niederau’s top hotels - you’ll love the easy and relaxed atmosphere at the Hotel Sonnschein. The friendly team are on hand throughout your stay to help make it a comfortable time.
The hotel itself has three wings all branching off of the main reception and dining areas. The original central part of the Sonnschein is decorated in classic Alpine style, while the newer wings - including the 3* Annexe where some of our rooms are located - add a modern and fresher touch.
When it comes down to food, you can sample Tyrolean favourites as well as international cuisine. Plus there’s always a veggie option. The fireplace in the lounge area provides the perfect social environment to make new friends and catch up on the day’s ski stories with a drink.
Wellness Suite & Pool
Down in the basement is the wellness suite – here you’ve got 2 swimming pools with underwater jets, a couple of saunas and a steam room.
There’s also a large ski room with heated boot racks – otherwise you can store your gear up closer to the lifts.
The Sonnschein is about a 10-minute walk in ski boots to the Markbachjoch gondola, ski bus stop and the centre of town - and a little closer to the Tennladen nursery slopes.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.
