The hiking tour starts at the end of the valley from the largest side valley of the Grossarltal - in the Ellmautal near the Grund car park. On a rustic alpine path you will come to the Filzmoosalm. This mountain hut is situated in an untouched natural landscape. The wide alpine pastures and meadows are limited on the one hand by grass-covered mountain peaks and on the other by the rugged limestones of the Draugstein and the Grosser Schneibenstein. After a little refreshment with self-made delicacies like bread, butter, cheese, sausage or bacon, there is much to discover for the children. Then it's time to go to bed.

After a delicious breakfast, the path leads upwards where you pass many pine trees, which are typical for the Ellmatal. Finally you arrive at the Filzmoossattel. Directly at the Filzmoossattel is a particularly beautifully designed gentian, the symbol of the Salzburg Almenweg, which also includes the part from the Filzmoosalm to the Filzmoossattel and further to the Draugsteinalmen.

Here, it is definitely worth to hike to the Filzmooshöhe (approx. 15 min one way). A different, but beautiful summit cross attracts all hikers.

When you turn around, you will see the Draugstein, which is majestically towering over the Ellmautal. This mountain is one of three limestone mountains within the valley and the clay on the Draugstein are said to be healing effects.The descent is quite comfortable to the Draugsteinalmen. There are two mountain huts where you will be spoiled with local delicacies and where you can spend the night. The left hut is the Schrambachhütte, the right the Steinmannhütte.

After a hearty breakfast, you hike down to the Hallmoosalm (not farmed). There is a possibility to go down by car or hiking taxi from the Hallmoosalm into the valley. Otherwise, you can still hike into the valley to Karteis.

Author’s recommendation

A climb up to the Filzmooshöhe (aproxx. 1/4 h in 1 direction) from the Filzmoossattel is worth in any case. Here is a different, but beautiful cross, which invites all hikers to stop for a short time.
