Bad Hofgastein is a market town and the historical hub of the Gastein Valley, located in the sunniest point of the valley. This resort is almost a satellite of the larger spa, Badgastein, as its radioactive waters are pumped from its neighbor. It is smaller than Badgastein but almost as charming. The skiing, mountains and Gastein's Alpen Therme create a unique ambience, where you can experience a wide range of sporting opportunities, both in summer and winter. You can also treat yourself to the joys of a variety-filled music and cultural programme.
