Bad Hof­gastein Gastein Holidays

Blossoming at the centre of the Gastein Valley. Experience and discover Bad Hofgastein

Bad Hofgastein combines skiing, sports, wellness, culture, and culinary delights all in one. The BLÜ is situated in the middle of Bad Hofgastein, which is in the middle of the Gastein Valley. So, we are in the heart of Gastein and could not imagine being anywhere better. Here the valley stretches wide, and the joy stretches high:

Bad Hofgastein is a charming, lively holiday resort with hiking trails, an extensive spa park, cross-country ski trails, an ice skating rink, lovely restaurants, and ski huts - as well as a variety of shops and the wonderful Alpentherme thermal baths.

Bad Hofgastein

Spacious pedestrian zone andmedieval centre

Strolling through the town's charming, historic centre, past the medieval tradesmen's houses and the bubbling thermal water fountains, you reach the pedestrian zone. The "main square" of the village is Kaiser Franz Platz, and it is here that you will find us and our Hotel BLÜ.

Culture for all - events of all kinds in Bad Hofgastein

Bad Hofgastein has also made a name for itself with its cultural events. For example, between May and September, our guests can look forward to a first-class concert programme by the Salzburg Philharmonic Orchestra under the artistic direction of conductor Elisabeth Fuchs. In addition, music enthusiasts are in the right hands in the time-honoured Kursaal, and there is always plenty going on in the Alpenarena. Rainhard Fendrich, Nena, the Fantastischen Vier and Martin Garrix have already had a taste of the healthy Hofgastein stage air. In 2021 and 2022, you can look forward to Helene Fischer and the legendary "Ärzte". Snow jazz, cabaret, open-air cinema, and traditional music bands are also part of the mix.

A proud farming community & regional delight in Gastein

Bad Hofgastein is characterised by its expansive, sophisticated lifestyle and proud farming community. Bad Hofgastein and its surrounding villages are also significantly characterised by a committed, lively farming community. Our farmers ensure an intact lifestyle and excellent hospitality on the numerous surrounding Alpine pastures. Delicious farm products of organic quality are produced and served here.

Dolce far niente

Experience sporting highlights, feel the splendour of nature and enjoy the culture and customs. All these are ingredients for a fabulous holiday, and we have them all.

However, one must not forget the Dolce far niente, the sweet idleness. That's something we're also good at. Just put your feet up, read a good book, soak up the atmosphere and the views. For this, too, Bad Hofgastein and the BLÜ are tailor-made.
