Bathing fun for the whole family

Away from hiking trails and regardless of the weather, the Alpenentherme or Felsentherme with their spacious outdoor and indoor pools are a highlight for a family vacation in Gastein. While the little ones can let off steam in the wet, the adults relax and enjoy the benefits of the soothing thermal water. Win-win for everyone!

From early summer to fall, the unique thermal water bathing lakes in the Alpentherme G astein as well as the Gastein bathing lake and the solar bath in Dorfgastein offer refreshing variety for young and old with action-packed water slides and an extensive playground and sunbathing lawn.

Hiking fun with children

  • Consciously choose an exciting hiking route. We especially recommend Gastein's themed hiking trails, which combine knowledge with fun and exercise.
  • Let them carry your hiking backpack : Taking responsibility makes children proud. Therefore, let them carry their own backpack. Maybe they can take along a special hiking companion, such as their favorite stuffed animal.
  • Plan breaks : Children hike differently than adults. They run. Sometimes they crisscross. That's why they get tired more quickly. Breaks keep them happy and give them energy again.
  • Fun & games: "I see, I see what you don't see" or similar riddles, funny hiking songs or even spontaneous stories, the course of which is retold by the individual family members in turn - everything that stimulates the imagination gives children energy and distracts them from how much time still has to pass before they reach their destination.
  • Reward: Every goal achieved deserves a pat on the back. Be it in the form of a snack in the hut, TV or cell phone time in the evening, or a small gift from the region.
This is how Family Time in Gastein goes

Just how child-friendly Gastein is, is revealed by the wide range of programs, where great fun is already pre-programmed. For example, exciting nature explorations in the forest or on the farm, challenges in archery, gold panning, playing tennis, climbing or riding high on horseback. And that's not all - in Gastein there is no time for boredom!
