Taking a winter vacation in ski resort Bad Gastein is always a great idea. In the Gastein Valley you have one of the biggest ski areas in Austria. However, there are still many other winter sports and leisure activities for the guests staying in Bad Gastein: Winter hiking, ice climbing or horse riding are some of the activities off the slopes. Breathe deeply, enjoy the quiet and the sight of the snow-covered mountains. Or unwind with a ride on the sleigh. Explore the solitude of the white fairytale landscape cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. A nice alternative to skiing is a toboggan ride or a day at a spa.
