Alpbachtal Seenland in the Tirol region of Austria is all about getting outdoors, soaking up dramatic scenery and breathing in the fresh Alpine air.
In summer, a hike through the Tiefenbachklamm, a spectacular gorge which carves its way through the Alpbachtal landscape, is guaranteed to give you a healthy blast of wild nature and a good measure of outdoor therapy.
Austrian mountain food is perfect for fuelling up after a hard day’s skiing. There’s no shortage of tasty winter warmers served up in the mountain huts and restaurants of Filzmoos in the Austrian Alps. Hot, hearty dishes designed to ward off the cold and keep ski legs hot to trot. Here’s my guide to Austrian mountain food – just so you know your Gröstl from your Käsespäetzle…
Filzmoos in Austria’s largest ski area, the Ski Amadé, is the sort of town you’d expect to see on the pages of a fairytale book. Wooden chalets tumble their way down the hillsides, snow-laden forests of fir trees line the valley against a backdrop of majestic mountains. As well as alpine picture-book perfection Filzmoos ski resort is also the perfect place for a first family ski holiday.
Filzmoos ski has plenty of runs for beginners, intermediates and many other activities besides skiing. You’ll also get good value for money in Austria, some fabulous Austrian mountain food and the warmest of welcomes. Read on for my Filzmoos Ski review.
