Hot-air Ballooning and Balloon Weeks in Filzmoos
The geographical location of Filzmoos, a fabulous, secluded launch site with the majestic Bischofsmütze mountain in the background, the opportunity for short flights in the valleys of the surrounding area, or long-distance flights over high alpine ranges, the village atmosphere, the friendliness of the locals giving the balloon pilots a feeling of coming home every year. A combination of all these factors make Filzmoos the perfect "Balloon Village”.
