The charm of Bramberg am Wildkokgel is the combination of a peaceful and authentic Austrian winter sports village with the fantastic skiing opportunities nearby. Around the corner, there are more than 350 km slopes - Skiarena Wildkogel, Kitzbüheler Alpen and the Zillertal Arena (Gerlos). It is even possible to ski all year round at the gletsjer of Kaprun (Kitzsteinhorn).
- The ‘home area’ of the Wildkogel Arena appeals to every skier. The mountain huts are very intimate and friendly, and 62 kms slope provides sufficient challenge for everyone.
- The legendary ski area of Kitzbühel (Kirchberg, Kitzbühel, Jochberg, Pass Thurn - 170kms slope) has many times been awarded the world’s best ski area. Dare devils will try to do the famous Hahnenkamm down hill.
- The Zillertal Arena (Hochkrimml, Gerloßplatte, Königsleiten, Gerloß, Zell am Ziller) offers 143km snow secure slopes from December till mid April.
In the event of shortage of snow, you can reach the gletsjer / summer ski area of Kaprun (Kitzsteinhorn) within a 30 minute drive.
The area around Bramberg is also great for cross country skiers and snow hikers. Alongside the village there is the 200km Pinzgatrail, running from Krimml to Zell am See. A little further, close to the middle station of the Panoramabahn (Hollersbach) you can enjoy the snow secure trails on the Hochmoor at an altitude of 1200m.
Sled on the world's longest flootlit toboggan run
The Smaragdbahn from Bramberg brings you and your sled to an altitude of almost 2100m. This is where the world’s longest floodlit toboggan run starts. Then gather your courage, prepare your sled and off you go… an adventurous 14km ride down. Within around 40 minutes you will have covered an incredible 1300 vertical meters and you will be back in the village.
