Alpine tranquility

Find recreation from everyday life in Alpine pastures where fresh mountain air and the spectacular view over the Gasteiner valley invite you to slow down.


Enjoy choosing between 144 different hiking paths including the popular 5.5 km Gasteiner Höhenweg on 1000 metres above sea level or a bit challening routes like the 11 km Gamskarkogel on 2467 metres above sea level.
