Mountainbike tour in the amazing alpine area of Filzmoos, at the foot of the Bischofsmütze.
From the start in Flachau, you follow the (Enns) cycle path in the direction of Eben and after a short descent, continue with a slight gradient to the centre of Filzmoos. In Filzmoos, at the roundabout, we ride north until we reach the toll road. At a leisurely pace, with a moderate gradient, we cycle along the asphalt road of the Warmen Mandling until we reach the Hofalmen at the end of the valley. Both the Upper and the Lower Hofalm are picture book alpine pastures, which invite you to enjoy culinary delights. The scenic highlight of the tour is undoubtedly the idyllic alpine lake at the highest point of the tour, a magical place of incredible beauty. The way back to Filzmoos is first along forest paths on the western side of the stream, in the lower part then on the eastern side, and right at the end there is also an easy trail section which guarantees riding fun. From the roundabout in Filzmoos the same route takes you back to Flachau.
