Blossoming experiences on holiday in the Gasteiner­tal

Gastein is full of adventures

Whether on the mountains, in the valleys, the forests or in the air, boredom is a word unknown in the three villages of Dorfgastein, Bad Hofgastein and Bad Gastein. Here, even the locals often feel like they are on holiday, so many adventures await.

On the four mountains of adventure alone, there is an incredible amount to experience. For example, at Fulseck, there are the power spots and the mirror lake, or at Schlossalm challenging via ferratas and a huge kids' area. The Stubnerkogel has a unique hanging bridge, and the Graukogel has a relaxing stone pine path. In between, there are quiet, hidden corners where you can simply pause, take in the world of mountains, and plan your next wow moment..

At the thermal water bathing lakestand-up paddling

While it looks straightforward, it's actually very challenging - and a lot of fun. The popular sport of stand-up paddling is also possible at the thermal water bathing lake of the Alpentherme. Even if you do not master the balancing technique straight away, it is not so bad: you can cool down in the lake.
