Seen this waterfall several times and it always amazes me the power of the water, it is an incredible site especially after a heavy snow fall. Nearby Bad Gastein centre is a little derelict but after the sale of 3 of the main buildings hopefully we will soon new life there very soon.

Good to walk across the full length of the bridge before skiing back to Bad Gastein. Great views of Mountains in the area and a birds eye view of the red runs below that lead to Angertal.

Reviewed By izret - Brno, Czech Republic

Well, that is why I dislike skiing in Austria, almost every time bad weather, overpriced skipasses and, compared to Italy or France, very, very dangerous pistas, I mean, no safety nets around them, even the curve surounded with big trees, shame, for that portion of money? But advanced skiers are on good place, very good cuisine at the restaurants.

Gasteiner Bergbahnen

Reviewed By Andy L

We last came here 6 years ago and are back in 2016. Back in 2010 it was in desperate need of updating. Sadly it appears nothing has been done and there has been no reinvestment in the lift infrastructure in a very long time compared with others outside the Gastein region.
Consequently expect long queues, closures in windy conditions and slow ascents.

Burg Klammstein

Reviewed By TomasGozdal - Prague, Czech Republic

The oldest historical monument guiding the entrance to Gastein valley on small hill with own parking. Well jard restaured from the ruins. It's just a one tower for 15 minuts to visit but of four floors full of things related to the history of this building and their owners as well as from Gastein valley. Nice views to valley from gallery on the top. Racy willing custodian speak only german. It's a shame that Gastein turistic centre don't make them at least papers with simple translations in English as well as the web pages mutation or put the night lights as is at historical monuments usual. At the end you can take something to drink and to eat at enjoing tavern.

A large park just behind the Alpentheme Resort and Information centre - which has a map of the area - first time in gastein area to find a map.
This park has wooden bed like seats in the shade - plenty of benches. Has a big pond with ducks, a small pool with Fountain in centre. Area to play chess. Great for picnics and for kids to run free.

Try their local specialty - Zirbenschnaps. Made from the cones of the local tree species - the stone pine. Unique and tasty.
