Then why not explore the snowy landscape on snowshoes. It's a great way to experience nature and be active at the same time.

A somewhat more racy way to immerse yourself in the snow-covered nature is by tobogganing. Also on skids, but at a significantly faster pace, it's down winding tracks through forests and across snow-covered fields. Don't miss out on night to bogganing during your Gastein vacation!
