Advent and Spa in Bad Hofgastein

Winter Magic & the Joys of Wellness

The snow crunches beneath your feet. In your hand, you have a fresh mug of mulled wine. You are standing right in the middle of Bad Hofgastein. The shop windows are decked out with Christmas decorations. The smells of spices and hot punch tease your nose, burning logs in fire pits provide added warmth and brightness. A group of brass musicians gathers, exchanges quiet smiles, and moments later, a Christmas song fills the air. If you could, you would love to stop time and preserve this moment as it is forever, savoring this winter holiday with your entire being.


Advent season in Gastein is a time of wintry magic and pure wellness. First enjoy the Advent market, then the Alpentherme, but still have plenty of leeway for spontaneity. In the mood for a sleigh ride through the Kurpark or a hike by torchlight? Have we convinced you that, with such a festive atmosphere, we are definitely the right choice for your skiing holiday or winter getaway?

Christmas Market

On the weekends 25. - 27.11.2022, 2. - 5.12.2022, 8. - 11.12.2022 and 16. - 18.12.2022


The snow crunches underfoot. The mulled wine warms your hands and stomach. In the centre of Bad Hofgastein, the atmosphere is Christmassy - festive. The centre of Bad Hofgastein with its Christmas-lit pedestrian zone provides an atmospheric backdrop. Tradition and variety are guaranteed by local folk music groups and tower winders. Experience a lot of romance and idyll - perhaps also on horse-drawn sleigh rides in the snow-covered spa park.

This is the Christmas season in Gastein!
