Mountain biking

A versatile mountain bike holiday in the mountains in Filzmoos

The various difficulty levels for individual mountain bike tours in the mountains in Salzburger Sportwelt ensure everyone gets to enjoy a bike adventure. A detailed road bike and mountain bike map is available at Reception and this covers the entire bike region in Salzburger Sportwelt. Specific, detailed tour outlines are available for families, pleasure riders and performance-oriented bikers.

Mountain bikers get to choose between blue, red and black mountain bike routes around Dachstein, that are signposted throughout. The variety-packed routes also partly proceed through the neighbouring towns of Ramsau, Radstadt, Flachau and Altenmarkt.

The area around the mountain village of Filzmoos – between Dachstein and the Bischofsmütze – is ideal suited for E-Bikes. With an electrically-driven motor, E-Bikes make it so much easier to tackle a lot of metres altitude of climbing.

In the sports shops in Filzmoos high-quality are available to hire. There are also plenty of charging stations for E-motors.

The Familienhotel Filzmooserhof has its own, serviced mountain bikes incl. bicycle helmets, which are available for adults and children to hire. Guided MBT – tours to the surrounding alpine pastures are offered once a week as part of the weekly programme of events.
