Calling sports enthusiasts and anyone craving rest: spa towns are pretty lively, too!
Boredom is foreign to places like Bad Gastein, Bad Hofgastein and Dorfgastein. You can hike across any of the 55 Gastein pastures and sample local delicacies directly where they are made. Or take a breather and get your immune system humming in the Gastein healing caves? Listen to the burbling of the mountain streams or the roar of the Bad Gastein waterfalls. Lean back in the hot springs and spa waters or hop into one of the refreshing mountain lakes. Zip down any of the 200 km of beautifully prepared slopes in winter and just let your soul come to rest at the heart of this delightful mountain vista.
