About this location

The Salzburg Region

The SalzburgerLand (the Austrian state of Salzburg) - with its primary river, the Salzach - lies between Upper Austria, Styria, Carinthia, Tyrol and Bavaria (Germany).

Running through the south are the main ranges of the Central Alps (incl. the Hohe Tauern mountains) with numerous 3,000-metre peaks. The Dachstein Massif and the Berchtesgaden Alps border the SalzburgerLand to the east and north.

It goes virtually without saying that salt plays a major role in the history of Salzburg - after all, it's what gives the city and state their names. Because of its vast salt deposits, the state made quite a name for itself and attained great wealth. Salt, often referred to as "White Gold", made so much possible. It financed the construction of numerous buildings, for example.

Even to this day, "The Sound of Music" is one of the most shown movies in history (standing right alongside "Gone with the Wind" and "Terminator"). And its popular song, "Edelweiss", was the most sold single in musical history after Bing Crosby's "White Christmas".

Three of every four American tourists cite "The Sound of Music" as the main reason for their trip to Austria. Korean youngsters learn songs from the movie in their English classes, Dutch magazines put on trips for their readers to visit the movie's major shooting venues, while TV stations from Australia to Zimbabwe regularly broadcast the movie to this very day at either Christmas, Easter or New Year.


A small village in the Sportwelt Amadé region (access to 860km of piste, 270 lifts and 25 resorts), Filzmoos dates back to Edwardian times, when it was a popular destination with the wealthy crowd from Vienna.

Its ski area is shared with neighbouring Neuberg and covers 32km reached by 17 lifts. It's a friendly and unspoilt spot and it has some gentle slopes which are ideal for novices. In addition, for more capable skiers, the Ski Amade lift pass covers 25 villages on the 1 lift pass totalling nearly 900km of skiing in 25 resorts including Flachau, Zauchensee and Schladming. We offer guests transport to and from some of the other local ski resorts. There is a charge for this service.

The highest skiing is at 1,645m, which drops down to the resort level of 1,057m.

In January each year a week long International balloon festival comes to Filzmoos. Flights can be taken each day (weather permitting of course) from the village. The main spectacle is the 'Night of the Balloons' when about 40 hot air balloons are present in the village. The pilots coincide lighting up their balloons in time to classical music. Something not to be missed! Balloon week 2011 is the 15th to the 22nd of January, and the 'Night of the Balloons' is January 16th.

Set at the foot of the Bischofsmütze mountain, the area has a good record for snowfall. There is no through-traffic and the après-ski comes highly recommended. For cross-country skiers, there are 30km of picturesque trails.

We offer Swedish and Sports massage in house with our resident masseur!!
