be our guest,
in glorious gastein!
Spa holidays are more current than ever – whether so as to get springtime off to an active start, relax for a few days in summer, in autumn (the classic time of year!) or, of course, in winter – each season has its own special appeal when it comes to enjoying the benefits of a spa resort in Bad Hofgastein.
Year-round, Gastein Valley offers that extra special something for fans of outdoor sports, for active timeouts, for people wanting to enjoy the finer things in life, or simply just “because”. And that is completely in tune with the vacation trends of today. What are holidaymakers looking for? The answer is simple: More! But not with a view to making their valuable free time even more hectic than their every-day life already is. Rather, it’s all about variety; the variety that every season brings – summer or winter – to be enjoyed to the fullest and as individually as possible.
“Relaxation” means something different to everyone – though however you define it, you can always add the perfect finishing touch with a visit to the spa! The famous hot springs of Gastein were actually mentioned all the way back in 1230: Penned in that year was a poem about bathing entitled “Die Graserin in der Gastein” – the oldest existing description of the medical benefits of our thermal waters. Afterwards, famous figures of that time would visit Gastein Valley time and again – including Emperor Frederick III, the legendary physician Paracelsus, as well Emperor Franz Josef and Empress Elisabeth of Austria, Emperor William of Germany and Prince Bismarck, to name but a few.
Whether alpine or cross-country skiing, boarding, ski touring or snowshoeing – a visit to the spa resort afterwards is definitely a must!
Gastein Valley is an insider tip in winter for active sports fans of all ages and all ambitions. Whether you are looking for the challenging slopes of Sportgastein or prefer slicing down the pistes of the Stubnerkogel – you have more than 250 kilometers of pistes to choose from. And if even that isn’t enough for you, Ski Amadé awaits with an incredible 900 kilometers of runs. Of course, boarders, cross-country fans and ski tourers also discover their own piece of heaven in the countryside surrounding Bad Hofgastein.
And one thing is absolutely for certain – when you are done, the spas are right there waiting for you. The Thermenhotels Gastein lend themselves perfectly for that purpose, including 4-star-superior Hotel Norica and 4-star Hotels Astoria and Alpina. After sport, you see, relaxing in the hot springs of Bad Hofgastein is the very best thing you can do for your body!
Whether hiking, mountaineering, rock climbing or simply daydreaming – the perfect conclusion is, without fail, a visit to the spa!
But a spa visit isn’t just a great tip for the winter months – in summer, too, you are able to regenerate even faster, giving your body the strength and energy it needs for the following day. In and around Bad Hofgastein, you are offered everything you need to make your summer getaway – whether just for a few days or longer – a memorable highlight. There is good reason, after all, why we nickname our valley “Hikeable Gasteinertal”! Countless mountain huts invite you to rest up after a shorter hike or lengthy mountain expedition as well as, of course, after a tour on your mountain bike along one of countless trails. The Schlossalm – Bad Hofgastein’s most famous local mountain – is one of the hottest tips, offering practically everything from alpine hikes to via ferrata climbs along with the opportunity for MTB adventures!
