The Gastein Valley is one of the five largest ski area’s in Austria, located 100km south of the city of Salzburg, and at 1000m above sea level, Badgastein is the highest ski resort in the province of Salzburg. A beautiful spa town with eighteen thermal springs bubbling up from the mountains at a temperature of 45°C. Enjoy the healing power of the radon water, curative galleries, thermal sanatorium, and health centres. The centre of town is a pedestrian district and offers many fine restaurants, beautiful shops, manicured parks and promenades.
Bad Hofgastein is its sister resort just 15km down the valley. It is a sizeable, spacious, quiet spa town set on flat ground in the widest part of the Gastein valley. The valley’s resorts are quite different from the Austrian norm, less charm than usual but with slopes forming one of Austria’s bigger and more varied areas. Many of the runs are quite testing for their classification, with some good long reds to the valley. The resort has a compact and pleasant pedestrianised centre but the slopes are best reached by ski-bus.
Munich is the best option, from where it is a 3.5 hour drive to the resort. Regular bus transfers or rental cars are available.
Salzburg Airport is a closer option, with both transfers and rental cars available, however flight options are more limited to here.
