Adventure awaits

Get ready for non-stop fun and adventure! If you are into winter sports and/or outdoor activities in general, Bramberg am Wildkogel will be an absolute treat for you! They’ve really got a little bit of everything to bring out your inner daredevil- from mountain carting to skiing, snowboarding, or even toboggan sledding. Well, it’s definitely not a place for the faint of heart. 

This secluded skiing village comes alive from early December to late March, driving droves of people from all over the world to take part in the classic winter pastimes of skiing and snowboarding. Therefore, it’s usually busier in winter months but one can perfectly enjoy a stay at any time of the year as there is always some fun activities to do! 

In this guide you’ll find a list of spots not to miss, budgeting tips, and highlights of Bramberg am Wildkogel from personal experience.

Typical Costs When Travelling

Accomodation– 75-500€+ (in peak ski season). The ideal accommodation is definitely a cozy little mountain village hut of your very own or even a luxury ski resort (if that’s more your style). I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Das Bramberg Wildkogel Resorts and would go back here for an extended staycation in a heartbeat! But as long as you find something close to the slopes you can’t go wrong!

Food– 38€. Bramberg am Wildkogel is a small resort town. You may be better off getting some groceries in town ahead of time. Of course there are also options at the top of the mountains too in case you don’t want your hunger to stop you from shredding those slopes. 😉 

Transportation–  Again, this is quite a small town but it may be of use to get a rental car to get around easier? Otherwise, there is a regional train service that runs every so often. 

Suggested daily budget– 144€

Hiking in the Wildkogel mountains Prepare to have your breath taken away, because the Wildkogel mountains will make you fall in love with Austria’s natural beauty. Turns out you don’t have to be into winter sports to enjoy the mountain life! In fact, you can see even more of the mountains as you are not restricted to certain slopes.
Rutschbahn For those that don’t know, a Rutschbahn is basically a giant slide in the mountains. Yes, adults are allowed and yes it’s totally worth it! Typically you can find either this or a Rodelbahn (mini roller coaster) in mountain villages across Europe. Your kids will probably love you forever if you take them here.
Exploring the breathtaking nature Aside from being home to major cities like Vienna and Salzburg, Austria boasts some pretty impressive natural landscapes. (Windows screensavers got nothing on you Austria)! It would be worth your while to explore some of the natural wonders like the Krimml waterfall just a 15-minute drive away from Bramberg am Wildkogel.

I had the fortune of visiting Bramberg am Wildkogel during trivago On Tour 2019. It was such an unforgettable experience and I will definitely be back for round two! 

We hope some of these tips could help ease the planning process!
