Hiking trails in the Gastein valley
The hiking trails in the Gastein valley offer a huge choice; amateur walkers can choose from as many attractive routes as alpine professionals. The geology of the "Hohe Tauern" national park is unique and manifold, just as the environs of Gastein: steep slopes and dramatic gorges, soft, lush-green hilltops, deep mountain lakes and romantic babbling streams.
350 kilometres of hiking trails offer a huge coice for families with children
as well as for able and experienced alpine hikers.
Explore the highland countryside along ancient gold digger trails, on horseback or via ancient trading routes.
If you can hear the sound of cowbells from afar, an alpine meadow must be near. Animals and their keepers from all over the valley still spend the summer months on the alpine meadows grazing land, a century old tradition.
Did you know that the term "Almrausch" has nothing to do with having drunk one too many? "Almrausch" is the name of the pink alpine flower, also known as an alpine rose, which when in bloom in June, transforms the alpine meadows into a vivid pink blanket of colour.
