Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Trick Fountains at Schloss Hellbrunn, Mozart's Birthplace, the Salzburg Residenz – resonant names of world-famous places and buildings. And every single one of them worth the visit. Whether by bus, train or using your own car: these excursion destinations are quick and easy to reach from Gastein. Families with children are certain to enjoy a visit to the Salzburg Open-Air Museum, while Hohenwerfen Castle and the giant ice caves just outside Werfen guarantee eyes and mouths wide open with amazement. Beautiful, and easy to walk if you are relatively stable on your feet, is Liechtenstein Gorge, while the panoramas of the Grossglockner, Austria's highest mountain, will simply take your breath away.
