Climate in Gastein

Gastein Valley in Salzburg lies perpendicular to Salzach Valley in a north-south direction. It is influenced by Central Alpine topography that often seems unwilling to let go its hold on weather systems out of the north, whilst sharing many of the weather traits that impact the inner-Alpine Salzach river valley. Bad Hofgastein and Dorfgastein are flanked by mountains on both sides, though open to the north and south. In contrast, Bad Gastein lies against a valley mountainside at some 1,000 m above sea level. The result is varying degrees of sun exposure and precipitation throughout Gastein Valley; which in turn means, nature lovers in Gastein see a completely different picture depending on where they happen to be within the valley.

 

In summer, the primary weather influences are out of the north-west, while in winter the valley elevations drop to deeper-than-expected temperatures due to the pooling colder air. Likewise, more precipitation normally falls at higher elevations. That said, here we see greater amounts at the lower elevations of the Salzach river valley since it is more exposed to rainy westerly winds than is Gastein valley, where the side mountains actually act as a barrier to precipitation. On average, Gastein experiences 208 days of snow from Nassfeld on, and 111 days out to Dorfgastein. The winds are steered by the valley itself and generally flow in a north-south direction.
