Holidays in Gasteinertal

World-famous Gasteinertal valley is the place where Austria's Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Sissi used to spend their holidays and where – a couple of centuries before - Paracelsus had discovered the healing power of Alpine. Bad Gastein, Bad Hofgastein and Dorfgastein are three holiday villages synonymous with health stays for guests from around Europe. The crisp and clean mountain air has healing effects, and makes a perfect combination with the picturesque landscapes of Salzburg's Pongau region and the varied thermal radon springs. The healing power was already proven by the famous physicist Marie Curie. Walking, hiking, climbing or simply relaxing add to a wonderful stay in Gasteinertal valley. Lift-assisted hiking is available as well for all those who want to enjoy the healthy mountain air at a more leisurely pace.

Gasteinertal summer - climbing, walking, swimming

The huge Gasteinertal Thermal Spa World ranks among the biggest of its kind in the whole Alpine region. A true health paradise for guests in search of a holistic well-being vacation for all senses. A visit to the renowned Felsentherme rock spa and the Alpentherme thermal center adds to a relaxing stay far away from the worries of everyday life, with the Alpine scenery as lovely backdrop. Healing waters bubbling out from deep inside the rocks help to restore energies. The local mountain lifts take walkers effortlessly up to Stubnerkogel and its 140 meter long suspension bridge leading to the Glocknerblick vantage platform that provides unique views of the Hohe Tauern mountain range. Walking fans discover the Alpine area on countless loop walking trails.
Sports aficionados can choose from an infinite number of via ferrata tours and climbing gardens on Schlossalm while walkers and hikers explore the surrounding pasturelands on well-marked routes. The top station of Schlossalm also features a fun-filled slackline park at 2000 meters above sea level, where both concentration and stamina are required. Down in the valley after an adventurous day in the mountains, you indulge in the soothing thermal waters of splendid Gasteinertal.
