Winter Holidays in Gastein
During the winter, the Gastein Valley has some especially exciting activities in store for you. Be they romantic, athletic or just relaxing – they are sure to enhance your ski vacation in Dorfgastein.
An unforgettable evening is assured as you enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride in Dorfgastein. You will sit down in the comfortable coach, wrapped up in nice warm blankets. The driver will urge on the horses and all you will hear will be the snow crunching beneath the runners and the bells on the horses. If you like, the driver will be happy to share tales of the region with you.
Tobogganing is, of course, a more adventurous activity. In Dorfgastein, the choice is yours: either take the cable car to the top of the slope, or make your way up there on your own two feet. After enjoying refreshments at the hut, you will be able to embark on your exhilarating ride back down to the valley. A sledding expedition is exceptional fun for the whole family. Evening rides under the lights are also possible.
What, you still have room for even more adventure? Well, Gastein never disappoints. How about hang-gliding over the highest peaks, with your eyes roaming the imposing Alpine backdrop. Beginners can even take a tandem flight with an instructor. If you try a little ice climbing, you will probably produce a little more adrenaline than you usually do. The fascinating ice falls in the Gastein Valley offer ideal routes for beginners and more experienced climbers, as well as even for the pros. Climb these walls of ice with the aid of an experienced mountain guide.
For kids, the Fun Center in the Stubnerkogel ski area is the focal point of any winter vacation in the Gastein Valley. Located on 300 square metres, you will find a kids’ cinema, a climbing garden, a ball pit and table-tennis tables. Video-game consoles are also available. Admission is free with a valid ski pass.
During your winter getaway, the Gastein Valley is also going to captivate you with its spas. Awaiting the youngsters is action-packed fun, while the grown-ups can unwind to their hearts’ content. Yet another important winter activity, of course, is apres-ski. The Gastein Valley is renowned for its top-quality nightlife. Numerous events from the worlds of sport and culture, such as its famous Jazz on Snow, also add to Gastein’s allure. And with its cocktail bar in the Römerturm, the Hotel Römerhof also makes its contribution to the stylish evening entertainment.
