We continue past the tiny Horler Stiegl chapel around the Rosskopf peak. The breath-taking panorama has to be enjoyed at leisure and where better to appreciate the views than at one of the quaint huts. From here we meander back to the Markbachjoch Gondola for the return journey back to Niederau. Don’t forget a packed lunch and plenty to drink.

icon Day 6 Walk 4 - Filzmoos Moor (Cat. A)

Location: Walk 4 - Filzmoos Moor (Cat. A)

The Filzmoos Moor on the Niederau Bruggberg is a wide plateau, which offers a fascinating insight into the Alpine plant and animal life. Frogs, dragonflies, butterflies and songbirds can be observed in this untouched biotope. You can also watch the deer in the nearby deer park. The gentle walk takes us north to Stockeben through the fragrant pine forests full of bilberries. After about an hour and a half we reach the moor at 1000m altitude. We return via Auenweg and back to Niederau. Don’t forget a packed lunch/snack and plenty to drink.

A further 30 minutes uphill and we will come to the Achental hut, famous for its views, snack and warm welcome. From here, it is just a short ascent to wonderful Kragenjoch peak. The array of wild flowers growing here in spring and early summer have become a rarity elsewhere. The peaks offer views over the Inn Valley. On the way back, we stop into the hut for a well-earned rest. Our return journey takes us through blueberry fields and mountain moors back to Oberau. Don’t forget a packed lunch and plenty to drink.
