The winter sports resort of Filzmoos – in the heart of the Salzburger Sportwelt and the popular ski region Ski amadé – will inspire you with its mountain village charm. Your winter holiday in Filzmoos starts right on the doorstep, as the Gästehaus Herrmann makes an ideal base for a number of winter activities.
Skiing and snowboarding
The Filzmoos ski area scores points with its excellent ski schools particularly with all those who like to take things easier. Here you won't have to queue for the lifts and at lunchtime you can stop for refreshment in one of the romantic mountain huts. In the Filzmoos family ski area, families with children are particularly well catered for. Leave your car standing in front of our guest house as the ski schools and lifts are right in the centre of the resort. It couldn't be simpler!
Making a ski holiday great fun!
Cross country skiing and biathlon
The well-groomed extensive network of cross country trails in Filzmoos is a paradise for every cross country skier and skater:
- free use of all cross country trails
- trails of varying levels of difficulty from easy to difficult
- 14 km long high alpine trail on the Rossbrand
- guided cross country tours, cross country lessons and introduction to cross country skiing at the Filzmoos ski schools
Do you fancy holding a biathlon rifle in your hands and under qualified guidance shooting at small round targets? On the Neubergerhof Sunshine Trail you can get a taster of the sport of biathlon surrounded by picturesque nature. Manfred Nagl, cross country expert with over 20 years experience and current trainer of the National Police Cross Country & Biathlon Team, will teach you the sport of biathlon and cross country skiing, no matter whether you're a beginner or keen amateur sports enthusiast.
Backcountry ski tours and snowhoeing
Descents in fresh powder snow make the hearts of backcountry skiing enthusiasts beat faster. We recommend the popular ski tour to the Sulzenschneid, which leads via the Sulzenalmen up to the Sulzenhals. An unforgettable experience is a guided ski tour with a state qualified mountain and ski guide, who's familiar with the local snow, weather and avalanche conditions and accompanies you on your day's tour.
Snowshoeing enthusiasts can easily reach the high alpine trail on the Rossbrand at 1,600 on the Papageno cable car. The free ski bus transports you safely to the various winter footpaths. The extensive network of cleared winter footpaths is sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Nature-lovers can also book guided snowshoe walks through the magical winter landscape here with us at the Gästehaus Herrmann.
Tobogganing & horse-drawn sleigh rides
Tobogganing is great fun for the whole family. The toboggan run from the Kleinbergalm can be easily reached from the resort centre on the Grossberg chairlift (last upward journey at 4.00 pm). The alpine hut and the toboggan run are really popular. You can also toboggan in the evening too.
A romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride surely belongs to one of the most well-know natural experiences in the mountain village of Filzmoos and has a long tradition. A very special experience is a sleigh ride with two Noriker, Haflinger or grey horses - you can see them often in the mountain village pulling their carriages and sleighs through the winter countryside. Guests also like to sit in the saddle. Maybe you'll get to met the sleigh driver "Fiaker Schorsch", who's got lots of interesting stories to tell about life here in the mountains.
Filzmoos – for decades now the balloon village in the Alps
The geographical location of Filzmoos makes the mountain village a wonderful base for hot-air balloons. Those wishing to wonder at the majestic Bischofsmütze from dizzy heights and observe the valleys in the region from above, have come to the right place. The atmosphere in the village and the friendliness of the locals, making balloonists feel at home each year, makes the "Balloon Village of Filzmoos" incomparable in flair and attractivity.
Become a passenger on an unforgettable ride over the momumental Dachstein range and enter a balloon dynasty with an official Christening afterwards. We're happy to organise and exclusive balloon ride for you. A spectacular experience is the balloon glow as part of Balloon Night in January.
