Active in the Gastein Valley

For those seeking sporting activities, there is a multitude available, and not only outdoor ones. After an action-packed day in the Gastein Mountains, relax in the Gastein thermal spa in the beneficial heat of the water and the saunas.

Summer in Gastein offers you a wide variety of sports, such as golf, hiking, mountain biking, cycling, yoga, and more. The snowy Gasteinertal scenery is enough to get the pulse of any winter sports person racing.

Watersports throughout the year

The sports pool and active pool in the Gastein thermal spa give swimmers an ideal environment to train in.
