How do I get to Bad Gastein?

Bad Gastein is jam-packed with food options for any taste. At the Hofkeller in the Salzburg Hof, you can prepare yourself for the night ahead with cheese fondue and raclette. Or at Jägerhäusl, you’ll find an array of regional delicacies. In the mood for pizza and pasta? We recommend checking out Pizzeria Angelo. Moral of the story? The options are almost endless.
04

Feeling inspired to get out on the slopes?

Whether you’re a freerider or a park rider, Bad Gastein has something for everybody. We suggest heading over to Snowpark Gastein on the Stubnerkogel to find the best rails and jumps in the valley. Or, check out Sportgastein to find the best powder turns.
05

Looking for a place to crash?

There are plenty of places in the Gastein Valley to put a tired head to rest and the Bad Gastein Tourist Office will be happy to point you in the right direction.
06

Time to relax?

After a day on the mountain (or a night at the club), there's nothing better than the Gastein thermal waters to get you back into shape. We suggest heading over to the Felsentherme in Bad Gastein or the Alpentherme in Bad Hofgastein to get your fix.
07
