The Kraftwerk Café just below, which stands right next to the waterfall, is unique and special. The outdoor dining area is protected from the thunderous Bad Gastein Waterfall only by a glass wall. The beautifully designed Archduke-John-promenade begins just a little bit below Mozartplatz Square. The start of the path is decorated by a bust of Archduke John, memorializing this man who was such a loyal guest of Bad Gastein. Flanked by deciduous and coniferous trees, you will reach the railway crossing before continuing uphill to the highest point on this walk, the herb garden in Hinterschneeberg with its marvelous views. The hike down takes you along a road with very little traffic back to Bad Hofgastein.
Free admission with your Gastein Card! You have to pay for the bus, taxi, cable car and consumption.
Dress appropriate to the demands of the hike - hiking boots with a good tread are necessary!
