Winter Hikes

Trees blanketed deep in snow against a sublime mountain backdrop: Bad Hofgastein in winter. Enjoy the magical silence of this landscape, perhaps out on a winter hike, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the ski slopes.
The wonderful countryside of Gastein Valley beckons you to set out on glorious winter hikes through a snowy natural world. Enjoy the impressive mountain scenery of the Hohe Tauern range. And experience winter from its gentler side. Over 100 km of excellently maintained winter hiking paths invite you to set out on wintry expeditions. And along the routes, countless traditional inns, ready to treat you to delicious regional Salzburg specialities.


For all of you in search of the tranquility of nature, snowshoeing is an ideal alternative to skiing. For centuries, hiking on snowshoes has been one of the best methods for making your way through deep snow.
Our hiking guide Christian will be happy to take you along once a week: on a wonderful hike on snowshoes through the snowy winter landscapes which surround DAS.GOLDBERG.
Also in Hohe Tauern National Park, the biggest nature sanctuary in the Alpine region, and in Angertal, guided tours are offered. And the new snowshoe trail in Dorfgastein, which runs from the Fulseck to the lift mid-station, guarantees unforgettable moments with breathtaking views: out across Gastein Valley.
