Filzmoos Holidays

One of Austria's prettiest villages

This pretty little village, with wonderful walking and a charming atmosphere, enjoys a truly picture-postcard setting at the foot of the Bischofsmütze and Dachstein Mountain peaks, surrounded by unspoilt scenery. Bischofsmütze means ‘Bishop’s hat’, and is so called after the striking shape of the peaks which form the backdrop to the village. Acres of pine forests, mountain streams and lush pastures surround the cluster of houses around the village green which plays host to regular open-air concerts and festivals throughout the summer. There are many walking paths starting from the village, and the walkers’ ‘wanderbus’ network transports you to mountain alms and the start and end points of various trails around the valley. Ideal for nature lovers who want to experience true Austria – the locals describe it as a little piece of heaven.
