Destination

Filzmoos

Turn-by-turn directions

Your starting point is the post office in Radstadt. From there, path no. 462 ("Rossbrand") leads along the city pond and Loreto street to the campsite and straight on to Bürgerbergstrasse where the Almenweg branches off into the forest. This steep forest trail crosses the forest road several times and first leads to the Bürgerbergalm. The path then continues in the same fashion, crosses the forest road several times until you come out of the forest and reach the Radstadt Hut on Rossbrand. There you can strengthen yourself, enjoy the wonderful panoramic view in all directions and find out about the creation of these wonderful natural landscapes. A beautiful, almost level path (No. 460) leads from the Radstadt hut to the Moserscharte. You cross Rossbrandstrasse again and walk to the transmission tower. A really relaxing section follows, which leads through sparse forest and past numerous small raised bogs. From the Moserscharte (path no. 464), the descent is steeper and after some time you leave the forest and reach the Moosalm via the ski slope. A nice place to relax with a fantastic view of the Dachstein, the Bischofsmütze and the village of Filzmoos. The descent to the bottom station and on to Filzmoos runs near the ski slope in the forest.
