Fantastic experience going up to the top of the mountain. Snow all over. The views out of this world! I am unfortunately not a skier, too old to start 😢. Had glühwein and good food at the restaurant on top.

Great options to ski, but some lifts can get crowded. Terrain can get bit rough in the afternoon in some areas.

This was a quaint town that has done quite a bit of remodeling since 2010. Most of the main part of the city looks new and remodeled. We enjoyed meandering through the town and seeing the waterfall at different points. Two-three hours is sufficient to...More

Except of old funicular coming from Bad Hofgastein (where you easily spend 40 minutes during morning, waiting in a line), everything is nice. Functioning not crowded, big variety of slopes, everybody will find his/her favourite ones. Dorfgastein ski resort (8 km by car from Hofgastein)...More

Nursery slopes in angletal are great to get the ski legs going. Once you get going the blue runs in both bad gastein and hofgastein are wide enough for beginners. Dorfgastein 20mins down the valley on the ski bus also offers... More
