Bad Gastein

The Grand Hotel de l'Euorpe is a former hotel in Bad Gastein and is under monumental protection. The hotel is a popular film location for international film productions and characterizes the townscape of Bad Gastein in Salzburgerland.


The Grand Hotel de l'Europe was built between 1906 and 1909 as a late historicist building. It was renovated in 1982. The building houses the Gastein Museum, several condominiums, the Ginger 'n' Gin and an event hall. With ten floors, the hotel in the center of Bad Gastein was one of the largest and most modern during the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. With the construction of the Tauern Railway in 1901 as an important north-south connection in the railroad network and the opening of the line in 1909, even more guests found their way to the beautiful Gastein Valley. Then came the two world wars and with them a brief standstill.

After the end of the Second World War, more hotels were finally built again - the modern public baths also made an enormous contribution to Gastein's renewed upswing. Just like the reopening of the Grand Hotel de l`Europe in 1980.

Many prominent guests were guests of the Grand Hotel de l`Europe, such as

  • Liza Minnelli
  • Charles Aznavour
  • Peter Ustinov
  • Falco
  • Bono Vox
