Walking in Gastein Valley: From spring to late autumn the Gastein Valley is a paradise for mountain junkies and hiking lovers.
From simple strolls to challenging hikes - the mountains offer something for every demand. Whether on the trail of the Romans (walking on the remains of an ancient mountain pass) or from pasture to pasture - the walks through the Hohe Tauern National Park offer an unbelievable variety. And countless mountain huts invite you to rest and enjoy the delicacies of the region.
It goes without saying, guided hikes are also offered - the Spa Hotels Gastein are at your disposal to help choose the right one for your hike together - with a trained hiking guide you can fully concentrate on enjoying yourselves. For example, on the Schlossalm, this is like the "mountain" of the spa hotels! This leads to Bad Hofgastein (height 843m) above the middle station at Kitzstein (1,302 m) and up to a height of 2,050m above sea level near the "Kleinen Scharte".
Whether a relaxation hungry holidaymaker or a super athlete - the Schloßalm provides for active families as well as a change for rest or recreation. The Schloßalm is just pure enjoyment - at the Kleinen Scharte offers a fantastic panoramic view, ideal for a rest. Or hike to a small or large mountain , or a real Alpine tour - it's your choice - and of course the team at the Spa Hotels Gastein would love to help. If you are together with family you may even want to explore the high plateau of Schloßalm with a pushchair - in the form of a lake walk for example. However, you can also use the trails - everything is very well signposted - from the mountain station and back. And the Schloßalm is perfectly suited to enjoy alpine hiking and climbing trails - so as to speak, a multifunctional mountain - of which we are proud!
One of the many highlights: The highest suspension bridge in Europe - built by the Gastein mountain railway. Thrill yourself with the 140-meter long suspension bridge on the Stubnerkogel - this is both the first of its kind at 2.300 meters above sea level and also accessible all year round. Anyone can embark on an adrenaline rush of a different kind, just few meters away from the mountain station of Stubnerkogelbahn - provided you have a head for heights and strong nerves - because the bridge is too light to pass through! Via ferrata - the new trend - a variety of options in the Gastein Valley: - On the Schlossalm, hiking and climbing can be interconnected via ferratas, with difficulty levels from A to E, offering something for every skill level.
From the practice ferrata on the "Weitmoser" B / C to the "Hirschinger" and "Kleine Scharte" C / D, everything is offered, including a magnificent view! And countless mountain huts invite you to rest and enjoy the delights of the region. Of course, guided hikes are offered - the Spa Hotels Gastein are at your disposal and to help plan the route for you hike!
