Welcome to one of earthly paradises – Sportgastein!
During the winter months the ski slopes of this high-lying skiing region attract countless skiers and snowboarders. When the snow disappears from the slopes, merely remaining on the 3000 meter peaks like a décor for the postcard photographers, a uniquely beautiful hiking paradise comes to life.
Some of Austria’s highest mountains offer the ideal conditions for alpine sports in spring, summer and fall in the midst of a breathtaking panorama in the High Tauern and moss-covered green summits of the Gastein valley. You can explore these and take in the wonderful nature by hiking, climbing or mountain biking, enriched with crystal-clear air.
A good network of roads and comfortable transport with safe mountain cable cars lead to numerous sensational panorama viewpoints. Equally fascinating is the “Nassfeld” (a lake) – Impressions that you will never tire of looking at.
After all the outdoor exercise make sure to enjoy some of the delicious authentic dishes in charming alpine huts featuring rustic furniture and dreamy terraces.
