Hotel EUROPÄISCHER HOF – Spend wonderful hours in the snow
Winter fairytale in the Gastein valley
The 5-star hotel EUROPÄISCHER HOF is located in the middle of the Gastein valley, in front of a stunning mountain scenery. It is the ideal starting point for various activities in the snow. The focus is on downhill skiing, since Gastein’s high-alpine situation makes it a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts.
The Gastein ski region offers on 2,700 m above sea level pure winter pleasures. More than 220 km of well-groomed runs and snow guaranteed until the end of April are waiting for skiers and snowboarders, who want to go down the slopes sporty, leisurely or freestyle – skiing fun for everyone! The hotel’s own ski-bus takes you to the closest lift station, the Stubnerkogel.
Cross-country skiers will also find perfect conditions: 90 km of perfectly groomed cross-country trails on 1,600 m above sea level. There is also a night trail for relaxing hours in the evening. Put on your skis and off you go on the Golfloipe trail directly at the hotel. Try the “biathlon taster course” under professional guidance on the trail at Böckstein – be sure to bring a steady hand and good nerves.
For those who prefer more peaceful activities, you can go on a guided winter or snowshoe hike with our sports experts. If you like velocity why not try tobogganing on the 2 floodlit tobogganing runs Bellevue Alm in Bad Gastein and Aeroplanstadl in Bad Hofgastein.
- Ice skating rinks can be found in Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein, with skating shoe rental.
- Curling facilities are located in Bad Gastein, Bad Hofgastein and Dorfgastein.
During the winter we offer not only a ski rental with all the latest ski and carving models, but also professional material advice at the hotel. We also present to you a selection of the latest winter fashion.
