Haus Barber Self-catering Apartments - Sunshine World's No.1 Recommendation!
Ski-Arena Wildkogel
back to previous page

The Wildkogel Ski Arena is located in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps, yet is within quick, convenient reach with no road tolls to pay.

During during the winter season, just 450 yards from the Haus Barber apartments, the Ski Express Bus provides easy access to a VAST ski area - taking you to and from either the Wildkogel Arena, the Panoramabahn Kitzbuhel region or the Gerlos and Konigsliten Zillertal skiing region. AND this service is free if you have already purchased the ski region ski pass!

The Wildkogel promises superb views of the Hohe Tauern National Park’s 3,000-metre peaks and the mighty Grossvenediger (3,674 m). Many regard it as the most scenic lookout mountain in the entire Oberpinzgau region. The Wildkogel Ski Arena offers magical conditions from December until April, for families, skiers, boarders, carvers and deep-snow specialists.

Wildkogel Ski Arena is often referred to as "probably the friendliest ski area in Austria" - above the very friendly staff the Sunshine World team met at the local tourist office!

Ski Slopes

Awaiting you in the Wildkogel Ski Arena are over 50 km of superbly groomed slopes, featuring all degrees of difficulty: 45 % blue (easy), 40 % red (moderate) and 15 % black (difficult).

The highest lift rises to an elevation of 2,150 metres. One 6-person cabin lift over 2 sections, 1 six-seater chair lift, 2 four-seater chair lifts, 1 double chair lift and 5 tows, 4 of which are beginners’ lifts.

Ski runs all the way down into the centers of Neukirchen (1300 vertical metres, 5 km) and Bramberg (14 km)!

Après Ski

So totally cool, an après-ski party at one of our area’s countless bars, pubs and dance clubs! After all, even sport’s got to take a break every now and then! The ice will quickly melt away to those hot rhythms, you’ll begin to enjoy that tingling party feeling. Our DJ’s know exactly what winter sports fans need – soon everyone will be grooving to those beats. And who knows what might become of that harmless flirt ... it’s a long night ahead!

Cross-Country Trails

The 55 kilometres of cross-country trails in Neukirchen and Bramberg couldn’t be a more pleasant way to get the pulse rates up of both “casual” and more athletically inclined cross-country skiers.

Night trails in Neukirchen and Bramberg!

The world’s longest lighted toboggan run

Known as probably the friendliest ski area around, the Wildkogel Ski Arena has been a popular venue for many years. And when you add to that what is likely the longest toboggan run in all the world, the Ski Arena gets to chalk up yet another record-setting highlight.

But before you hit the hill, grab your speed-demon sled and hop aboard the Wildkogel Lifts for a leisurely ride up to those lofty elevations above (toboggan ticket: adults EUR 8.00/ children EUR 4.00). At this point, all that’s left is a quick 15-minute walk towards the Wildkogelhaus and the start of the toboggan run – then off you go! You’ll be zipping down a course that’s the better part of 14 km in length, dropping some 1300 meters on its way back down to Bramberg.

If it slides over the snow, then it’s allowed – be that a speedy racing toboggan, a comfortable sled, or even a fancy bobsled. The ride takes approx. 30 – 50 mins., depending on how good you are. And get this: the entire hill is floodlit until 10pm – now that adds an extra bit of zest to the night!

You can rent out toboggans, sleds or bobs from the sports shops in Neukirchen or Bramberg.

Wildkogel Lifts – Hours of Operation:
04.12 - 05.12
11.12 - 01.05
Daily from 8:45 until 16:15

Wildkogel Lifts offer evening service especially for sledders:
Every Tuesday and Friday until 6:30pm

Ski shuttle leaves the Bramberg village square at 6pm
Ski shuttle leaves the Fliegerbichl Restaurant (located at the foot of the toboggan run) at 8:00 and 9:00pm

As you’re sledding, be sure to follow these simple rules:

  • Always hold on to the rope loop of your toboggan - that way you’ll avoid unnecessarily endangering your fellow sledders and ensure your sled doesn’t get away from you.
  • Obtain information on snow and weather conditions (06566 7251 for the Bramberg Tourist Office, or 06565 6205 for the Wildkogel Lifts’ “SnowPhone”).
  • For you to really enjoy the ride, you need to be dressed in appropriate clothing. Especially for children (ages 3/4 or older), we recommend ski glasses, a scarf, cap, ski pants or leggings, gloves, sturdy boots – but not ski boots. Children 6 and under should always ride on the same sled as their parents! Tip: it’s also much safer for the kids to wear a helmet during the ride!
  • You can take the free ski shuttle from Bramberg to the base station of the Wildkogel Lifts.

Kühnreit Tobogann Run

  • Great tempo and team spirit are also the order of the day on the floodlit Karalm and Kühnreit toboggan runs.
  • Family fun is guaranteed with exciting sledding expeditions on these natural floodlit toboggan runs.
  • Weekly moonlight tobogganing on the Kühnreit run!
