Bad Gastein is built on a rock and therefore has a fantastic view over the entire length of the Gastein Valley. Relax in one of the many spas after a hard day skiing. You can also find many restaurants, cafes and nightclubs. The village is divided into three small ski areas. On one side of the Graukogel, there is an 8-kilometer run with an altitude of 1500 meters and on the other side of the village at 2246 meters is the Stubnerkogel. This has the largest area of skiing and is connected to Bad Hofgastein. For snowboarders there is a 100 meter long halfpipe. The third area is located southeast of the village and is called Sport Gastein where you can reach a height of 2686 meters.
