Bad Gastein Hotels

Amongst the dramatic mountain landscapes of Bad Gastein, you'll find steaming thermal springs, waterfalls, and rapid rivers that give the town its feeling of being close to nature. Indeed, before the town became a popular ski destination, it was a spa and health resort, with many people swearing by the benefits of the warm, bubbling spring waters. Most visitors now come for the wide range of ski trails, the perfectly powdery snow, and the charming traditional town with its lively aprés-ski.

Things to see

The ski season from December to April sees a thick layer of white powder covering the slopes, and these reliable snow conditions bring in plenty of skiers of all abilities. There are 8 lifts available, as well as long ski slopes to go around, so even at peak times the mountains don't feel crowded. If you're not into zooming downhill, then the many nordic trails will let you explore the area, or you can enjoy winter hiking, sledding or snowshoeing. The area is also rich in cultural events such as the Snow Jazz Gastein festival which happens late in the ski season, or Art on Snow which is a unique exhibition of contemporary art inspired by the snow white mountains. In the warmer months the trails turn into ideal hiking or biking spots, and you can explore Klammstein Castle as well as other fascinating historical buildings within the town. A walk over the suspension bridge is also essential for those with strong nerves, and at an altitude of 2300 metres it's the highest suspension footbridge in the whole of Europe, and it's been cleverly designed to limit the amount of swaying.

Hotels in Bad Gastein

The area has a wide selection of accommodation, much of it within historic buildings with charming period features. Choose one of the 4 or 5 star luxury hotels in Bad Gastein which have plenty of features to help you relax and unwind. Many hotels have full service spas, spa tubs, and indoor pools, and some also have outdoor pools that are fed by the warm relaxing waters of the town's springs. You'll often find aprés-ski facilities such as bars and lounges, as well as restaurants where you can relax over local cuisine. Choose a guestroom with a balcony to help you really appreciate the beauty of the area, and you'll also enjoy amenities in your room such as free WiFi, kitchenettes, coffee makers, and hair dryers.

Where to stay

In Bad Gastein you can enjoy the crisp mountain air from 1,000 metres above sea level. Many buildings sprung up in the 19th century, and their Belle Epoque style made it a popular resort for royalty and the rich to pamper themselves. In the pedestrianised town centre you can enjoy charming paved streets full of shops, restaurants, and town squares where you'll find farmer's markets selling piles of local produce, and Christmas themed stalls in the winter.

How to get to Bad Gastein

Salzburg Airport is just a 70 minute drive north of Bad Gastein, and there are flights arriving from across Europe on a regular basis. Public transport is also cheap and efficient, with buses from the airport to Salzburg HauptBahnhoff, the main railway station, where you can then catch a train to Bad Gastein. The rail station, known locally as Bahnhof Bad Gastein also has excellent connections as far as Salzburg and Spittal, with breathtaking mountain views as you travel towards your destination.
