Gastein in the summer

How the weather is in summer - even if the forecasts are very promising - you always know only afterwards! But one thing is already clear: The one who chooses Gastein as his "holiday home", will experience and enjoy a wonderful summer! In a world where - although everything seems to run much faster than before - time has become a rare and therefore very valuable asset, it is even more important, to relax and have fun in the place, where it really succeeds to recharge the batteries and discover new things.

Can do everything, but have to do nothing!

Gastein offers countless possibilities and moments, detached from everyday life, to discover the intact nature and to discover yourself, again and again, from a different angle! Hiking over alpine pastures, ambitious trail running or mountain biking, concentrated golfing or action-packed flyingwaters - whoever experiences this in front of the impressive mountain scenery and crystal clear mountain air, the prospect of wonderful holidays has already become reality!

But you do not have to! Just enjoy the tranquility and the smell of the alpine herbs, take a break from everyday life or finally have time for stimulating conversations and a good book - you will find your own personal favorite feel-good place in Gastein!

Gastein has always been closely associated with health, already since the time of the emperors. For centuries, the "liquid gold of the Hohe Tauern", as the inhabitants call their thermal water, has been used successfully as a cure. Since 2017, the two unique thermal water lakes provide a very special bathing pleasure!

Tradition and culture are also very important in Gastein. Whether at Berge & Musik, Alm: Classical with the Salzburger Philharmonie, Summer: Freshness: Art or at the village festival - Gastein becomes a stage and everyone joins in!
