Bad Gastein Resort Guide

Bad Gastein is a beautiful spa town with incredible architecture – all built into a steep mountain side. Often referred to as the ‘Chamonix’ of Austria, Bad Gastein became famous in the 19th century when the royalty of the Austrian-Hungary Empire used to holiday there. Today Bad Gastein retains that element of grandeur while adapting to life as a modern ski resort. Its nightlife and après-ski during the winter are legendary, while the summer attracts a more genteel crowd attracted by the thermal waters, golf, hiking and stunning vistas. In winter the Gastein ski area has some 250kms of piste that rise to over 2,600m as well as ski touring and cross country trails. In the summer the tourists flock to the area for cultural festivals, hiking and enjoying the numerous outdoor thermal baths, springs and swimming ponds that you will find throughout the valley.
