Bad Gastein is the largest village in the ski resort Gasteinertal, one of the top 5 biggest ski resorts in Austia. This stylish village has a luxury character due to its exclusive image and thermal spa & wellness facilities. Bad Gastein is surrounded by 5 great ski aera’s with a total length of 220km. This resort is worth mentioning because it mostly consists of red and black slopes and makes it the perfect destination for the experienced skier!
The area Sportgastein is the real recommendation for thrill seekers and freeriders. This is the highest part of the resort with a glacier and many off-piste possibilities. From the 2686 meter high top of the “Kreuzkogel” there are great challenging slopes or you can ski the 8km long unprepared “Nordabfahrt” which brings you in the valley, 1500 meters lower. If you have skills and are looking for excitement, this is the place to go!
Bad Gastein is more than just a luxury ski and wellness village. Some of the best Austrian restaurants are here and there is no shortage of quality shops. There is also a nice casino but if you really want to relax go to one of the thermal spas and treat yourself after a long day on the slopes!
VISOR recommends this beautiful chic resort! Not only because of the excellent skiing possibilities for experienced skiers but also for the relax spa & wellness resorts.
