Further winter activities in Filzmoos

Horse-drawn sleigh rides, tobogganing, the "Night of Balloons" and much more


Your winter holiday in Filzmoos promises a whole lot of fun and variation. Discover the amazing range of recreational activities in Filzmoos in the Salzburger Land region. While skiers make their sweeping descents on the pistes of Filzmoos at the heart of the Ski amadé network and cross-country skiers make their tracks on the perfectly-prepared cross-country skiing trails amidst the wonderful snow-clad landscape, there is also plenty for the non-skiers to do in our mountain village.

Cross-country skiing   Tobogganing   Fun in the snow for children   Tobogganing

After all that winter hiking, snow-shoe hiking, ski touring or a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride, you will understand why we in Filzmoos love our traditional village so much.  

As well as the peace and all those idyllic interludes, we can also really party. During the après ski, e.g. at the Happy Alm or the event highlight of the year, the Night of Balloons, we really like to let go.

Winter hiking and snow-shoe hiking in Filzmoos

On about 50 km of well-cleared winter hiking trails you can walk through snowy woods and meadows. The snow crunches underfoot and you can enjoy the imposing views onto the Salzburg Mountains. You will want to hold onto this moment for ever, it's so beautiful!
Why not take a break in one of the cosy mountain pastures hut serving food. At these so-called "Jausenstationen" you can warm up with a glass of hot tea, mulled wine or the specialty "Jagatee" (tea with rum) amidst a cheery crowd.

Ski tours in Filzmoos

The skiing schools in Filzmoos are happy to take you on a ski tour into the Filzmoos Mountains. For beginners, the tour of the Kleinberg or Mandlberg peaks or the Almsee tour is just the thing. More adept tourers can sweep down the deep-snow slopes of the Rettenstein.
There are also many varied ski tours on the nearby Dachstein peak, exciting for beginners and pros alike.

Romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride in Filzmoos

A romantic horse-drawn sleigh is a special pleasure, riding up to the Hofberg pasture in Filzmoos. Slow and steady, the horses pull you through the fairytale winter forest to the Hofalmen at the foot of the Bischofsmütze peak. After a cosy break and the obligatory coacher's schnapps you return at a light trot back to the village.

Tobogganing or sledging in Filzmoos

A hilarious tobogganing session should be a part of every winter holiday. Hike to the "Kleinbergalm" and zoom down into the valley with your sledge. All those who like it a bit cosier can get up to the top of the slope with the Großberg chairlift or the tobogganing express. In the evening the tobogganing run is also floodlit.
An extra special combination is the horse-drawn-sleigh and tobogganing fun. With the horse-drawn sleigh you go up to the "Gsengbergalm" and after a hearty snack zoom back down the valley with your toboggan.

Night of Balloons – balloon glow in Filzmoos

Filzmoos has become in the last few years the "Balloon Village of Austria". Every January, there are a host of glowing balloons hovering above the picturesque mountain village of Filzmoos. The Filzmoos Night of Balloons is well known beyond its borders and always entices thousands of eager spectators from near and afar.
To a choreographed musical score, the balloons "dance" to the rhythm of the music. The atmosphere is electric on the Hammerwiese in Filzmoos with plenty of mulled wine and tea (Jagatee) to go with the hearty snacks served. The crowning glory to this unique event is the firework display lighting up the sky around Filzmoos.
