I seasoned in Bad Gastein (or as we seasoners say "BG ") the winter 13/14 and it was amazingly good!

It's a rather big system, I think with a lot of varied driving from steep slopes to a bit more ice-skating and slippery slopes! Many of the slopes are hilly - which I personally thought was fun! A little less fun the days you were completely dead in the legs though!

The slopes in Bad Gastein on Stubnerkogel itself are not much to cheer for if you are a beginner or have your children - quite steep and partly narrow. But in Angertal and Schlossalm there are many really lovely and long runs !!

Sport Gastein is a gem you must visit in fine weather! Taking 15-20 minutes by ski bus oh is definitely worth it!
You can also go to Dorf Gastein, which is also a very nice ski area with many slopes and great restaurants!

The park in BG was not much to cheer for - so you who want a grim park should think twice!

Nightlife I did not think so much about writing - BG is the most famous for its party life, but it's crazy to go to BG - but who goes to the Alps with the biggest focus on party? ;-)

Very good ride for most!
Sport gastein sunny days!
Nice mountain area with lovely views!
Ski passes are available in a UNITED KINGDOM area in Austria (tips for those who will be there for a long time - type seasonal tours to different piste areas on day trips and exploring !! This card does not cost extra if yes is correct.

-
Many people go here sports week weeks = long queues!
Had a bad snow when I was there - but you're not sure!
A bit well very Scandinavian and in their places a little well "touristy "!

We were in Bad Gastein v9 and had half weather and snow conditions / temperatures most reminiscent of v13-14
Have visited about 15 resorts in the Alps and Bad Gastein is one of the worst ski-in. Small variety and difficult bus transport system. However, it is much better, for example, Åre or Trysil if you want to compare with the Swedish / Norwegian mountains.

Have also been to Bad Gastein during the summer and walked and it was absolutely amazing. There we also stayed at the Saltzburger Hof with fantastic food which of course contributed to the overall experience.

Were in Badgastein now under the Sports Act 2015. Oh, I can say that if you travel with children there are few places to hit Badgastein. The advantage is that many speak Swedish and there are many events like children iaf 6-15). Among other things, Determined Redbull playstreets are settled there in the middle of the town every year o They have plenty of different baths that kids like. Then we also lived at a Swedish-owned guest house (Haus erika), with a host couple who were incredibly nice and knowledgeable. Just a stone's throw from the lifts (Stubern) o 50m from the ski slope. They had extensive knowledge of the area which greatly facilitated us. There are several mountains to go there. We went up on Sportgastein first dan. Sportgastein offers alpine skiing at 2700m. In fine weather we had there, d is fantastic. They also had very good food at the central station there. We only went with a mountain to stubernkogel before we got home. There they have a mountain restaurant called Bellevue Alm. A 400 year old farmhouse which now serves as a restaurant. Really got a real alp feeling there. Can eat there both in the evening and in the evening. If you eat in the evening you get a tow on the ticket o A 2.5 km long illuminated canyon awaits!
Short and good, are you going to travel with children and have a lot of activities besides skiing, I would recommend Badgastein.

Have been to Bad Gastein several times but also other places in France and Italy. The last time was on the 2nd of 2014 and it seems that the queues have almost disappeared since they built the new cabins on Stubnerkogel. The biggest advantage, however, is the easy-to-reach off-piste both at Sportgastein and Stubnerkogel, which is also unexplored the first hour as it is in Chamonix and St. Anton. Since I was there last year 2009, there have been several really professional guide schools that can take you to a really good off-piste yacht without having to hike for hours. Even the ski buses have become better so all in all, I can recommend Bad Gastein for those who want to ski both in the back and outside. Nightlife is good and you can relive the youth at places like Haeggbloms but also enjoy good food and drinks in the new place Ginger's'Gin. Does Bad Gastein like to pay much attention to his nightlife but I think it's terribly underestimated for his skiing!

Bad Gastein. great place if you want to find an alternative to sports or branäs. You notice directly that the village does not circle war skiing without even more at the hotels. Most hotels are over half a mile away from the lifts. skiing is not much to brag with it is possible to go, but snow was missing in most of the slopes. admittedly not all skiing is bad there are some longer runs and they are often crowded.
For those who want to ski on your skiing holiday, do not go to Bad Gastein.
we stayed at the hotel eden and the hotel is like the slopes. (quite bad) what I had heard, the oath would have a good kitchen, that was something I was looking forward to when I had half board. but I did not say the food was unclean, so I longed for the school food you received in elementary school.

nightlife: I thought there were 2 places to go to in the evening and they were silver bullet and haegbloms. On silver, the average age was 35+ and on haegblom 20+ but it was very sunk.


+ good weather
+ good sales
+ ALL customer Swedish (do not know if it's a real plus)
+ service minded staff

-skidåkningen
lift systems
food (could not find anything but French on the slopes if you do not want to pay 300 kr per lunch)
very bad skiers on the slopes

Bad Gastein was the best trip out of my 13 year old life with maybe 15 different trips on my neck. It was a wonderful weather and climate. The sun shines constantly and it felt like in paradise. We stayed at the world-famous Hotel Salzburger Hof which offered everything from good food to whirlpool, a sick big swimming pool and great meals. I who had only ski 3 times before of which 1 was sick all week, I was not in a top shape when I was on the skis right away. So I went to a ski school all week I went from riding the blue hill a little bit wrong to get red and even black without problems. More about what I did and more about skiing and the presidency. The ski slopes were very well looked after and the staff that helped were always nice and almost always said "good luck" (how to spell it) haha. but unfortunately, at the bottom of the tree line, it was a bit lighter and more obvious but guess why? the whole ski school for those who were a little more amateurs than me went there all day :( everything for me, worth a visit clearly!

Bad Gastein is small Sweden in Austria. It's a lot of party and all "cool" are there.
Good skiing, it's a very big place.
It's definitely a good ski resort, but if you want to come from all Swedes this is not the place you should go to. But are they good and affordable skiing you're looking for then Bad Gastein is a great place.

Have been to Bad Gastein 2 times, the first time was early in the season but it was quite okay ..
The second time it was a good ride, a bit of ice. But after a proper dump of snow it would probably be more intreesant driving ...

Just come home and find out that BG is not really for me. A lot of parties, almost only Swedes and 80% of the system have artificial snow, and while the food is OK, one must look for something really good, especially in the slopes. But I think people go there. But there are some pearls. Graukogel, no snow cannons, amazing slopes, almost no skiers (probably because of the ancient, rather slow lifts). Sportgastein, especially skiers left. The restaurant at the Jungeralm lift actually cooks food - not a gulash soup from giant cans from Knorr. Great. And the beer is both good and cheap everywhere,

I was lucky enough to go down twice now at the beginning of the year.
At first I was there v.3 and v.5, it was my 7th time I was in Bad Gastein.
A wonderful ski resort for those who are in the mood for offpiste, though, I have to say that below the tree line it becomes quite grim.

If you want the best skiing and off-piste it's sport gastein and badgastein to move around, there are a lot of places that are not touched and one can easily be the first to make wonderful trails in the snowmobile. Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein are interconnected due to angularity and they are the only mountains in the valley that you can travel between with lifts without having to take a bus.
Sportgastein also has the best pistil fans in the valley and the feeling is wonderful when you see that there are some people in the slopes "mostly because people are too lazy to take the bus which takes about 20 minutes)

The different resorts are
Bad Gastein (Angertal - lift)
Bad Hofgastein (Angertal lift)
Dorfgastein (Bus)
Sportgastein (Bus)

Something about skiing even if it's the best with the whole place. Think there are enough people to find out how it is, but I can also say that we were very lucky with the weather v.3 when we got sunshine with a lot of snow all week and v, 5 with 4 sun days and 3 a little worse.

The nightlife:
The nightlife beats most, if you have been to Val Thorens, you wonder if you have come to heaven kingdom. Looking for the best after skis, "for youngsters" where everyone sings and the tuning is at high level, then you should move to heagblooms that are right across the street from the Shell Mack, completely cruel after skiing, both the silver bullet and Eden .

When I and our Polar were there v.5, we spent our night out mainly hanging around Gatz, Silver Bullet and Eden. Wonderful places, however, depending on the people who are there of course. There are a lot of unexplored little pubs a little further down the village that I would recommend to check out.

Still about the nightlife, we lived at the sports hotel adler, or as some others called it a German onion hotel.
If you are looking for some cheap but minimal roof over your head and a surface of 4 square meters, you should live there, to say that the four mansions are extremely small while the two men's rooms are large.

A little tired now, just returned from BG, so go get me haha ​​:)
But please write if you have questions. can answer most of the time!

Was in Badgastein late January 2009.
Although Badgastein is not at a particularly high altitude, there was surprisingly much snow.
The best rides are found in Sport Gastein, nice off-piste, yet wind-sensitive area. Blowing it in Badgastein then blowing it into hell in Sportgastein.

Fine forest skiing on the Graukogel side, the most beautiful slopes do not attract very many.

If you feel tired of fatigue, you can drive the 13 kilometer slope at the Schlossalm

Overall, skiing is very good.

The downside of the resort is everything Busy. Bus to Sportgastein, Bus to Graukogel, Bus to Dorfgastein.

If you are lucky you can stay at Haus Winkler. Got the clothes washed and that the place is next to the Stubnerkogelift so you do not have to go long walks compared to staying at Eden or SalzburgerHof
