Two world-class spas – surrounded by unparalleled mountain scenery – are waiting for you in Gastein, the highest-elevation non-glacier skiing area in SalzburgerLand.
Ski in Gastein
Varied skiing pleasures await you on a winter holiday in Gastein, because the Gasteinertal has the right piste ready and waiting for every level of ability: 4 ski areas covering a wide area up to 2,700 m high, including deep snow and mogul pistes, carving courses and freerides bring entertainment to the ski holiday. On the Schlossalm you’ll find, alongside the variety of slopes suitable for all levels of ability, Gastein Funslope which offers up unique rides over boxes, smaller jumps and steep curves.
SKILINE VIDEOS, PHOTOS AND VERTICAL METRES
How many vertical metres have I skied? How’s my action video footage? Am I laughing in the photo? Skimovie gives you a unique racing experience that’s even captured on film. The cameras follow you from start to finish along the entire H4/Haitzingalm/Schlossalm, thereby providing you with a professional video of your personal racing experience. A special additional attraction is the 140m-long suspension bridge on the Stubnerkogel which hangs over a 28 m high precipice.
You can check out live pictures from Gastein straight away in our webcam section, as well as the current weather. The Stubnerkogel offers much for all freeskiers– the snow park with its perfectly formed set up, and lines for freestylers of all levels.
The high-Alpine Sportgastein, which boasts wide and open back-country terrain, is a complete dream for freeriders. The optimal altitudes and extensive snow making facilities provide a guarantee of snow from the end of November until the end of April.
It goes without saying that families and children aren’t neglected in Gastein. The mascot “Gasti” sits in the middle of the children’s winter wonderland in the Angertal Ski Centre. On this snowy meadow many fun “Gasti” features, such as slides, a labyrinth, tubing slide and snowball target area, encourage children to play and frolic in the snow. The large snow igloo is particularly popular with the children. At the Stubnerkogel mountain station, the 250 m² Fun Centre in the winter offers up hours of entertainment. Right in the mountain station building of the Stubnerkogelbahn cable car the little ones can really let off steam. There’s much entertainment for the youngsters from a ball pool to a climbing park, table football and air hockey.

GASTI SNOW PARK IN THE ANGERTAL SKI CENTER
In a unique adventure area in Salzburger Land, the Gasti snow park offers many highlights for its guests on over 10,000m².
A place of reflection and a treasure of art history. The so-called Church of our Lady was built between 1498 and 1507. Its luxurious centerpiece, the Baroque altar which was the magnum opus of the painter Josef Andrä Eisl and sculptor Paul Mödlhammer, made its mark in history.
The subject of many famous painters and poets. The Gasteiner Ache drops a total of 341 m in 3 levels. The atomization of negatively ionized air has a positive and pleasant effect on general well-being. Sources of the Gasteiner Ache are the Anlaufbach and the Naßfelder Ache in the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The stone waterfall bridge was built in 1840 and improved in 1927.
The waterfall path leads along the waterfall to Badbruck. The path is cleared in winter!
Mitten unter altem Baumbestand und im Herzen des Gasteinertals liegt seit über 350 Jahren der Bertahof, ein Restaurant in dem guter Geschmack und Gemütlichkeit gelebt wird. In der Küche dieses Landgasthofs regiert Küchenchef Robert Granitzer. Er veredelt und verfeinert heimische Klassiker und bewährte Gerichte.
