The Summer Paradise
Shared experiences make children strong and families happy! Explore the child-friendly Gastein Valley with your family: build a mud dam in a stream, climb high up in the mountains, bake bread at an alpine chalet, spy on the beautiful ibex and much more. Enrich your family holiday with adventures in Gastein!!
Enjoy a fairy tale and herb hike with your children, observe rural life on the mountain pastures and enjoy the laughter of your children as they play with animals. Or go wild and splash around in the hotel's "Family Fun Spa"! In short: simply have lots of fun together!
Llama Trekking Tours
Another holiday tip for the entire family is to take a llama trekking tour amidst the idyllic mountains of Gastein. After a brief general information session and introduction to llamas as pack animals, these trusting - but rarely seen in Austria - animals are saddled and loaded with packs. Together with expert guides you’ll comfortably ride to the Riedl Alm alpine chalet where a rustic and delicious alpine buffet awaits.
Family Alpine Adventure
The family-friendly Gastein alpine chalets have established their own children's play areas and while you enjoy relaxing on the sunny terrace, the children can play in the lush pastures, picking colourful flowers along the way and chasing butterflies. Enjoy the mountains, rocks, meadows and mountain streams, and the herby scent of hay, freshly baked bread and campfires.
Teenagers will find exciting biking trails in Gastein, discover challenging climbing routes under the guidance of experienced mountain guides, and be inspired by trail riding on horseback or panning for gold in a stream.
Up with the Cable Car, Down with the Monster Scooter!
This is the newest offering from the Gastein mountain cable cars and is available from late June to mid-September. Monster Scooters are ready and waiting to go at the mountain station of the Schlossalm cable car!
