A summit breakfast in Gastein, in the middle of Hohe Tauern National Park, is simply unforgettable.
To be honest: In Gastein, there are many wonderful ways to begin the day. That said, one that is especially spectacular and moving is the famous Summit Breakfast. Even the ride up the mountain is reward enough for the effort that went into getting up so early. The Goldberg Lift will carry you comfortably up into the very heart of Hohe Tauern National Park. Once at the top, you will hike with a mountain guide towards the next early-morning highlight: the cross on the summit of the Kreuzkogel in Sportgastein, where you will be able to take in the breathtaking views!
Be there, live, when the sun casts its first rays over the top of the Alpine peaks and the summits gradually emerge out of the dawn skies. Over 400 tall, majestic mountains join forces to create a spectacular panorama, while your eyes roam across the untamed romance of Gastein Valley in its entirety. The perfect moment to bite into a crispy-fresh breakfast roll and sip on an aromatic coffee - all of that at pleasantly comfortable temperatures, since a glass dome protects you from the cool morning air. Sound magical? In this legendary glass-and-aluminium structure created by famous Austrian architect and designer Gerhard Garstenauer, the table has already been set for you. Freshly prepared regional dishes, friendly service and - last but not least - the glorious vistas of the surrounding mountain world, make this Summit Breakfast an experience you won't quickly forget.
Experience the impressive natural spectacle as the sun rises above the peaks of Hohe Tauern National Park, enjoy a breakfast with products from the immediate region, lean back and relax - relishing every moment of this start to yet another perfect vacation day in Gastein.
The Summit Breakfast takes place every Wednesday, meeting at 8 a.m. at the valley station of the Goldberg lift in Sportgastein. This unforgettable Summit Breakfast can be booked directly through the tourist office in Bad Gastein. Please register for the breakfast by no later than 5 p.m. on the Tuesday before.
