Advent in Bad Gastein

Between the houses stands a waterfall. Many decades ago, photos from here traveled around the globe. And made this town world-famous. Now, in winter, snow lies on the ground everywhere. It is idyllic. Narrow lanes, old buildings festively decorated. You feel like you have been transported back into a whole other time. 


The smell of home-baked cookies teases your nose, while on the table next to you, you will find a delicious spread of bacon, cheese and fruit bread. The children are gathered excitedly around a wintry carriage, or huddled inside busy with Christmas crafts projects. You can experience scenes such as these at the Christmas market in the Merangarten and at the Christmas market in Böckstein.

After the Advent market and mulled wine, enjoy the thermal water and a pre-Christmas timeout.
