Gastein Valley

At the entrance to the Gastein Valley, you are welcomed by the picturesque holiday resort of Dorfganstein. The family-friendly community enchants with breathtaking nature, warm hospitality and perfect conditions for unforgettable days of hiking, family excursions, biking or a culinary highlight at the huts.

The tranquil mountain paradise of Dorfgastein at the entrance of the Gastein Valley captivates with its heartfelt living traditions and hospitality that comes from the heart. The idyllic village at the entrance to the valley offers everything for a regenerating holiday immersed in nature: lush Alpine meadows, imposing mountain peaks, themed hiking trails for the whole family and rustic Alpine huts serving up local specialities. Dorfgastein is also a real insider tip for mountain biking, paragliding and hang gliding. 

Stages six to eight of the Salzburger Almenweg run through Dorfgastein. They lead past the Drei Waller Chapel, the Präau Hochalm Alpine hut, which extends an incredibly special offer to guests with its honeymoon suite, and to impressive mountain peaks with unique views. Furthermore, you can expect wide Alpine basins, delicious local delicacies, small ponds, moors and summit ridges that invite you to linger. Stages six to eight cover around 2,300 vertical metres and 24.5 kilometres in around 13 hours before you continue your hike in charming Bad Hofgastein.
