A valley so close to the sky
Three villages in the heart of the Salzburg state share the beauty of the Gastein
Valley. Bad Hofgastein, Bad Gastein and Dorfgastein offer you healthy recreation,
cultural inspiration and diversion simultaneously.
Active and sporty
Where green alps invite for hiking deep into the autumn, the white splendor attracts
in the wintertime: Sportgastein is the name of the heavenly landscape in the middle
of the Hohe Tauern National Park. In the wintertime, our region and its slopes with
guaranteed snow far into the springtime are a true insiders tip for skiing
For culture enthusiasts
Friends of the arts and culture of course also get their money’s worth in our historical
region. Roman, medieval and baroque treasures such as the Roman tower in Dorfgastein,
the Weitmoser castle (“Weitmoserschlössl”) or the pilgrimage church “Maria vom Guten
Rat” (Mary of good counsel) in Böckstein all await to be discovered by you.
By the way: at our place, your car can also go on vacation. Many destinations can
be reached by bus, train or mountain railway and cable cars.
