Discover the diversity of the Gastein mountains on sunrise tours, half-day or full-day tours, challenging high-altitude tours or culinary Alpine hikes. Experience the soothing effect of the mountains. You can always be free to decide which path you would like to follow because, as the saying goes, the path is the goal. The destination is always a beautiful one on a hiking holiday in Gastein. Keep your eyes peeled because there's plenty to be discovered along the way. Herbs, flowers, now and then a marmot will greet you. On higher terrain, you might even spot a chamois, and in autumn, the deer in all their glory. In Gastein, you will experience nature first hand.
Incidentally: Gastein is one of eleven regions in Austria to have been awarded the Austrian Hiking Seal. We believe it is well-deserved!
The BLÜ as a hiking hotel is the ideal base for an active holiday in Gastein.

The hosts of our Gastein hotel are themselves keen hikers and therefore always have new hiking tips and routes at the ready for you. Below they describe their three favourite hiking routes.
