Dorfgastein - "the door to the Großarltal valley "
Once Dorfgastein was simply called"Dorf" (village). It is located between the famous Schuhflicker and Bernkogel mountains. In the past Dorfgastein was the starting-point for reaching the Großarltal valley.
that’s why the first church was built here. It goes back to 1350 and is a tourist attraction and an interesting destination for an excursion. In spite of the progress and the innovations, Dorfgastein is still able to preserve the whole charme of its past.
In Dorfgastein, as in the whole valley of Gastein, winter sports’ fans will find all they’ve ever dreamt of. In this region 201 km of slopes and down-hill runs, which reach a height of 2700 m above sea level, are awaiting all skiers. Here all skiers, from the beginner to the expert, find the ideal slope thanks to the down-hill runs in fresh snow, carving areas, freerides and mogul fields.
Skiers will be fascinated by 4 ski circus areas: Stubnerkogel-Angertal-Schlossalm, Dorfgastein-Großarl, Graukogel and Sportgastein. Thanks to the elevated height and the modern systems for producing artificial snow skiers can use the numerous ski-runs from the beginning of November to the beginning of April. All those searching for an alternative to skiing can enjoy the “thermal world” in the nearby Bad Hofgastein. The new spa satisfies all desires, thanks to its surface of 14000 square metres, devided into six separated sections: one only for families and another one dedicated to fun, a “sauna village” with an open-air section, a Ladies World, a fitness gym and a nice food section.
Dorfgastein is considered a paradise for all paragliding fans, as well as an ideal holiday destination for those looking for relaxation and sports.
