Marvellous Filzalm Lake
A cable car takes the guests directly from Brixen im Thale to Hochbrixen, from where it is only five minutes on foot before you catch your first glimpse of the Filzalmsee.
All around the idyllic Filzalmsee the visitor will discover a magical landscape of mountain pastures, in which there is a lot to see and discover. And then there is the biotope, which is right next to the lake. Here you can view the plant and animal life in the lake through a glass-bottomed funnel or you can have a go at moving the giant rope-operated hand. There is also a giant eye, which turns everything upside down, and the mystical water giant who rises from the water.
If you look at the nature around you a bit more closely then you may discover the odd natural peculiarity. This is because the Filzalm is surrounded by raised bog in which particular plants thrive and rare animals live.
It is not only families and hikers who like to visit the Filzalmsee, but Nordic walkers and mountain bikers also use the area around the lake for a longer break to enjoy the breathtaking views in peace and quiet, or to refresh themselves for the next stage in the moor foot spa or in the wading area of the Biotop facility.
Above the Filzalmsee is a cosy mountain hut, where you can sample typical local fare as well as fresh milk and cheese from the pastures. A well-developed network of hiking trails connects the Filzalmsee with the Hexenwasser Hochsöll, the Hohen Salve, the Jochstub´n See and the KaiserWelt in Scheffau.
