Winter Holidays in Gastein

Leave your own tracks in the Gastein snow with your carving skis or cross-country skis, your snowboard or snowshoes.

One valley, four ski areas - here, there are just so many choices! Regardless of where you decide to begin, you'll quickly discover a mountain destined to become your personal favorite. That said, all of the other ski areas are definitely worth paying a visit to as well, and they're all just a few minutes away by car or using the ski bus. Whenever there's barely any snow on the ground in other ski areas, Sportgastein is the place to be, thanks to its high elevations and natural snow in abundance. Which also makes it one of hottest freeride meccas anywhere in the Alps.

But you definitely don't have to be a skier in order to enjoy winter in Gastein to the max. Put on some warm clothes and step out into the crystal-clear air. Go tobogganing, or perhaps ice skating with your whole family. As you stroll along the Kaiser Wilhelm Promenade in Bad Gastein, you'll probably be accompanied by a few curious squirrels. Happen to have a handful of nuts in your pocket to share with your furry friends?

Things to love about winter in Gastein:

  1. Ski huts with an open fire and homemade meals, rather than tourist traps 
  2. The icy sculpture created by the frozen Gastein Waterfall  
  3. Glistening air and radiant sunshine, with temperatures around - 10° C
  4. Building snowmen and making snow angels
  5. The calming silence of the snow itself
  6. Drinking a toasty mug of mulled wine with your friends
  7. Hearing the jingling of sleigh bells and the snorting of horses
  8. Catching snowflakes in your mouth
  9. After an active day of skiing, enjoying a plate of spare ribs or a schnitzel with an absolutely clear conscience
  10. Being able to decide whether you are in the mood for the full "après-ski experience" or just a quiet drink
