Dorfgastein - the “healthy village” of Dorfgastein a true paradise for mountain and sports enthusiasts

If you come from the north, you’ll travel through the "Klammsteintunnel" to Dorfgastein. Even at first glance, you’ll see that customs and tradition still play an important role here. Embedded in the middle of imposing mountain landscape of the Hohe Tauern, Dorfgastein has retained its original village character.

Families will feel particularly at home here and little ones are warmly welcomed. Numerous activities for children, including the Solarbad (swimming pool) with huge slides, children’s pools, beach volleyball and alpine saunas or the activities at the Gasti children’s club, make a summer holiday in Dorfgastein unforgettable.
