Festivals and Events
Filzmoos comes alive during the summer months (late June to end August) with the village brass band playing regularly in the evenings, and a selection of festivals including the annual Dorf Fest in July, National dress days, doughnut and dumpling festivals plus many others with food stalls, entertainment, live music and dancing in the village square. For more information go to www.filzmoos.at.
Filzmoos boasts over 200km of clearly marked walking paths for all levels, with some stunning walks throughout the Bischofsmütze and Dachstein area, particularly around Bachalm, Moosal, Hofalm and Neuberg. The valley is filled with mountain streams, green pastures and pine forest, and the hillsides are dotted with rustic mountain alms for regular refreshment stops.
Getting Around The efficient walkers’ ‘Wanderbus’ is a regular shuttle service for walkers to various mountain huts and the start and end points of trails around the valleys, opening up many circular walking routes. Cost approx. €4 per journey or FREE to guests at Hotel Hammerhof and Hotel Hanneshof. The Grossberg chairlift in Filzmoos runs two days a week from end June to mid September, and the Dachstein cable-car in nearby Ramsau runs daily (accessible by Wanderbus).
Popular Walks include Filzmoos’ highest peak the Gerzkopf, for 360˚ panoramic views, the circular Alpine Flower walk and a dramatic trail to the snow covered Dachstein Glacier at 3000m (accessible by local bus), as well as extensive scenic marked trails between various mountain alms in the local Bischofsmütze and Dachstein valleys.
‘Filzmoos Activ’ runs an excellent programme of daily guided walks through the tourist office including themed easy walks and longer summit hikes to various points around the valley with professional English-speaking guides. Walks are graded blue, red and black for difficulty/length and there is often a choice of walks each day. A small local charge may be payable. Full information is available from the Tourist Office and your Inghams Rep.
