At the heart of the Gastein Valley, Bad Hofgastein is neighbours with traditional spa town Bad Gastein and Dorfgastein. One single ski pass gives you access to the entire Gastein Valley ski area, which encompasses 5 different skiing areas. Lift-linked only with Bad Gastein, together they make up the largest connected skiing area and one of the largest in Austria. It’s easy to reach the other areas by bus. A pretty market town has a pedestrianised centre, which appeals to families booking group ski holidays.

Skiing holidays here provide a wide choice for beginners through to expert ability level skiers, perfect for group ski holidays.

Accommodation in Bad Hofgastein

At the heart of the resort lies the focal point of the village, a 500 year old church.

The Austrian family-run hotels here are very reasonably priced, meaning you can stay in homely surroundings for your forthcoming skiing holiday to Austria.
