Slice, top spin, volley or smash - challenge your partner to a match on a tennis court in Gastein.
If you'd like to take advantage of your vacation to pursue your favorite sport, tennis, then Gastein is definitely the place for you. Tennis has been played in Gastein for many years. With 23 tennis courts in total - 19 outdoors and 4 indoors - you'll be pounding balls across the net in no time at all. Whether one-on-one or doubles, a tennis match is sure to give your cardiovascular system the jump-start it has been craving. Fast-paced rallies and quick dashes across the court to scoop up the ball are great fun, and they feed your competitive instincts.
As soon as it's dry and the temperatures are warmer, you will be able to play on 19 outdoor tennis courts. After a relaxed, extended breakfast, head out onto the court in the morning for a great workout before the heat of the day sets in. Still have some energy to spare after your hike? If so, grab your rackets and squeeze in a quick match. Nestled as we are in the heart of colorful Gastein Valley, between the mountains of the Hohe Tauern range, it isn't nearly as hot as it is in many cities. Thanks to the cooler temperatures, not only are you able to sleep better at night, you can also enjoy all kinds of sports without working up too much of a sweat.
Just because it's winter, doesn't mean you have to go without getting your "tennis fix". You can reserve the indoor tennis courts at Hotel Palace in Bad Hofgastein and at Hotel Sonngastein in Bad Gastein even if you're not actually a guest of either hotel. That said, nothing more stands in the way of a tennis match after your day of skiing. As for afterwards, how about paying a visit to a spa resort in order to relax those tired muscles?
