Lots of space for families

In the big sunbathing area, there is plenty of space to set up a sun umbrella and recliners, all of which you can borrow on site. Summer fun is also guaranteed for the youngsters, including a slide of their own as well as a sand box to build sand castles and bake sand cakes. Whenever you get a bit peckish, the cafe right there will be happy to serve you food and refreshments.

Easy to reach

This recreation area is close to the golf course between Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein. If you prefer not to ride your bike or walk, you can simply take the public bus. The bus stop is right across from the entrance. Free parking is available if you come by car.
