A high light yield at low temperatures is one of the key criteria in the choice of scintillating target crystals for the CRESST-II dark matter search. We perform a feasibility study on ZnWO4 crystals as scintillating targets for the CRESST-II experiment. The light yield and the quenching factors of at mK temperatures are given for the first time.
