The first thing you'll notice about the Hotel Unterhof is the fountain and pretty gardens that lead you up to the traditional architecture of the hotel. Inside you'll notice the friendly Austrian welcome sign and receive a warm welcome from the staff. You can feel the hotel's 15th century roots - the rustic restaurant and adjacent bar have a historic tavern like feel and traditional décor. 

In the gardens you will find the heated outdoor pool with loungers and views towards the snow capped Bischofmütze mountain. The indoor pool and AlpinSpa wellness area has a natural theme and a large window providing panoramic views of the valley. Two saunas and a steam room provide the perfect place to rest your legs and you can also book a massage to really spoil yourself.

Many would be hard-placed to pin Filzmoos on a map – and that’s a good thing. This small village is tucked between the rugged Bischofsmütze and Dachstein mountains and surrounded by alpine meadows, streams, pine forests and mountain lakes. Walking holidays to Filzmoos are all about getting out into nature, with trails from the doorstep and the village has an off-the-beaten-track feel. It's filled with tradition – expect a genuine Austrian welcome, and probably a brass band concert or two. Houses cluster around the village square, church and green, which host open-air concerts and festivals throughout summer.

Wild walking

With over 250 kilometres of trails around, there’s something for every type of wanderer, from pram-toting families seeking easy strolls to keen trekkers looking for rugged limestone peaks. That said, Filzmoos best suits active walkers. The Gerzkopf Nature Reserve is a hiking paradise - it was declared a nature reserve in 1981, and offers moors and mountaintops, all with fabulous views of surrounding peaks. The 350-kilometre-long Salzburger Almenweg long-distance trail also passes through Filzmoos. Fancy following in the surefooted steps of an expert? Guided walks regularly start from the tourist office, run by Filzmoos Activ.

Explore by cable car or tractor taxi

The Papageno Cable Car whisks passengers up to Rossbrand mountain where you can marvel at the 360-degree views over 150 or so mountain peaks and sip a coffee at the sleekly renovated mountain hut. In a little over an hour, and with not too much height gain (160 metres), you can be at the summit of the Rossbrand mountain - for peak-baggers, this is one of the summits of the Salzburger Summit Game. Meanwhile, the Fidibus walker's bus takes wanderers to alms, towns and trailheads and the Almi shuttle – a wooden trailer hauled on the back of a tractor - runs to and from the Aualm.

Mountain huts with character

Charming mountain huts dot the hillsides and pastures around Filzmoos - some of the best include the 350-year-old Oberhofalm, which cooks Alpine specialities like dumplings near the foot of Bischofsmütze mountain – named for its bishop’s hat shape. Nearby Unterhofalm is another great hut, serving brettljaus'n meat and cheese platters and homemade doughnuts in one of the most beautiful pastures in the Alps.

Filzmoos for families

A one-hour walk – or speedier shuttle bus ride – takes you to the Bachlalm mountain hut. As well as serving up mountain fare cooked in the original antique oven, the hills around serve as a favourite sunbathing spot for marmots. A family-friendly nature trail can be found here too. Want a break from walking? Head to the leisure centre at Filzmoos, which comes with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a climbing wall and bowling alley. Active youngsters will also love the play area at the top of the Papageno cable car.
