The cultural scene is very diverse and interesting with castles, some museums, little villages and interesting cities like Innsbruck and Salzburg only an hour's drive away. A lot of tradition has been preserved in the Wildschönau; old farms, houses in the Tiroler style, musical performances, dance and folk-fairs, for example the “Talfest” (valley festival) and the popular Almabtrieb (cattle parade). Next to Niederau are the old villages of Oberau, Thierbach and Auffach, which also belong to the area of Wildschönau.
