Tips for rainy weather: the Gastein alternative program

Even in snow flurries or when raindrops patter on the ground, there is much to experience in Gastein.

Unfortunately, the sun can't always shine, even on vacation. Not to worry! The region in Salzburger Land is also prepared for this. In the Gastein Valley you can experience unforgettable moments on vacation or enjoy action-packed excursions even in rainy weather in summer and snow flurries in winter. Here you will find everything around a great bad weather program and you will quickly forget the rain.


Revive. Breathe in. Take off.


When it's raining or snowing, a visit to one of the thermal spas in Gastein is a great idea, for example. The warm water relieves tension and, with a bit of luck, makes you forget the raindrops. Soothing warmth, romantic moments or bathing fun are guaranteed.


Treat yourself to some time out in the Alpentherme or Felsentherme.

There are four different themed worlds at Alpentherme Gastein - one of which is a real children's adventure world. In the "Familiy World" in Bad Hofgastein, little pirates can whiz down the fast-paced speed slide that ends in the warm thermal water. They can measure their strength in the current channel or simply let themselves drift. The extraordinary multimedia adventure dome invites them to relax between water battles. While the children are lying in the water, children's and family films as well as nature documentaries are shown on large projection screens. This way, the kids can gather strength for the next slide and the next adventure in the sparkling Gastein thermal water.


Culture can be experienced in any weather, which is why the Gastein Museum is a great bad weather program. A special experience in front of a breathtaking backdrop is offered at the Kraftwerk Café, located directly at the foot of the mighty Bad Gastein waterfall.

Even if the weather gods are not in a good mood on a summer vacation, there is plenty for your child to discover in Gastein. When it rains, for example, children and teenagers can let off steam at the adventure playground in Bad Gastein . Whether trampolining, playing soccer, pedal go-karts, inline skating or cozily watching a children's movie in the beautiful fairy-tale castle - children will certainly not get bored in the 1,700 m² play hall.

An insider tip for wet days is horseback riding in Gastein. Whether at the Icelandic horse farm or at the Gastein riding club, looking into the dark eyes of horses will quickly make you forget about everyday life.


So what is there to wait for? Book your next vacation in the sports and wellness paradise Gastein right away.
