      The sixth is also the last stage of the Gastein Trail. Another twenty kilometers in the legs, but this time almost all downhill. So get ready for a wonderfully relaxed walk in which the Hohe Tauern National Park is central.The first part of your walk you walk along the river, towards the power plant of Nassfeld. Via the old Nassfeldstrasse, once an important route for trade and mining, you walk towards Böckstein. Feast your eyes on the old road, which consists of many old tunnels and avalanches. Along the way you will pass the waterfalls Bärenfall, Schleierfall and Kesselfall, where the water plunges down with a lot of noise. A similar noise to that of the water that flows under you when you cross the river via the bridge.You can recognize traces of mining from the past in many places, but the First World War has also had a visible influence on the Gasteinertal. Over the Russian Bridge - which owes its name to the Russian prisoners of war who built it - you continue to the Astenalmen, one of the oldest mountain huts in the entire Gasteinertal. Make sure to stop here.Also stop at the pilgrimage church of Maria zum Guten Rat. From this point you will get a last glimpse of Böckstein before walking along the Empress Elisabeth Promenade towards Bad Gastein. Beautiful Belle Époque style houses, an impressive waterfall and naturally flanked by the steep mountain slopes in the background. No wonder this was such a favorite place for emperors and princes. Later, the Gastein Valley became especially famous for its healing thermal water. For example, you walk past the Elisabeth spring, one of the largest thermal springs in the Gasteinertal. A little later you walk on the Kaiser Wilhelm Promenade, from where you have a beautiful view of the landscape between Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein.After six days of hiking, the Gasteiner Höhenweg brings you step by step closer to your final destination, whether that's a relief or not. Picturesque farms, beautiful nature and an amazing landscape. Enjoy it just a little longer. Today's last highlight: the Gadauner Gorge with its waterfall and tunnels.Today's end point of the entire Gastein Trail is now in sight: Bad Hofgastein. Sit down on one of the cozy terraces in the fashionable and lively center and enjoy the past six wonderful days.

      The fifth stage of the Gastein Trail starts in historic Angertal. In earlier times there was a lot of mining here and you can still see the consequences of the mining era in many places in the side valleys. Soon you will start climbing again via a path through dense forest.After about eight kilometers you will reach the Stubnerkogel, one of today's highlights. Partly because of the great view, but also because of the exciting 140-meter-long suspension bridge. The cell tower is another landmark of this beloved place. Less sporty hikers can also come here with the gondola, but with the Gastein Trail you have of course just covered the whole part on foot.Enjoyed the view enough? Then follow the route further to the top of the Zittrauer Tisch. This is quite a tough part, so pay attention to where you put your feet. But you will be rewarded for that with a beautiful 360 ° panorama and a fantastic view over the entire Gasteinertal. You can also choose the slightly less difficult Otto-Reichert-Weg as an alternative.Via Böcksein, the Heilstollen, the Radhausberg and the Erzwiesmeer you walk towards Miesbichlscharte and the Bockhart lakes, with the beautiful deep blue water that shimmers in the sun. You can stop for a break at the Bockhartseehütte, from where you can already see the old mining path towards the valley. If you take a good look around you on the path, you can see the glittering quartz veins in the ground. These indicate gold, which makes it clear at once why mining was once so great here.Those days are far in the past and today you mainly see alpine meadows around you and of course the lifts and slopes for winter sports. This also includes the gondola house of the Goldbergbahn in Sportgastein, today's terminus.

      If you mainly walked uphill in the previous stages, today you walk down most of the day. The fourth stage of the Gastein Trail starts where you ended yesterday and hopefully had a wonderfully relaxing night: the Hofgasteiner Haus. The surroundings are again beautiful from the first few steps.An old connecting path leads you in the direction of the Rockfeldalm. "Trittsicherheid" - as the Austrians say - is important on the Hermann-Kreilinger-Steig. A fear of heights is also not handy here. Stop every now and then to look around. You can see the alpine meadows on the other side, where you can taste homemade bacon, butter and cheese in the meadows. You can recognize the farm life here at great heights, if only by the countless hay barns along the route and the smell of freshly mown grass.On to the Gadauner Hochalm with the various authentic mountain huts that blend perfectly with the blooming environment. The Felding Hütte is one of them. From here you have an impressive view of the Türchlwand and the Sieben Spitz.The descent towards Angertal goes through dense spruce forests, which offer a welcome relief on hot summer days and which treat you to a mixture of scents of trees, mushrooms and moss.Once down you can clearly see the tourist side of the Sack valley, for example through the futuristic valley station of the Kaserebenbahn. You have suddenly ended up in the middle of a ski hotspot, where countless skiers conquer the mountains in winter. This was once a bustling place for a completely different reason: in the past, mining was extensive here and mineral resources were extracted from the ground.

      You wake up today in the cozy Biberalm. Located on the west side of the Gastein Valley, the Biberalm is the perfect place to experience a sunrise. You start with a climb via an old connecting path to a remote part of the valley. You take one more look at the typical Alpine environment with the Kerscherhütte and the Kompberghütte, before entering the dense forest via the Hytongasteig.In the forest you cross a stream a few times, but thanks to the bridges you can do that with dry feet. You follow the paths through the forest and in the distance you can see it getting lighter again. The trees make way for alpine meadows again. You soon see the Fundner Heimalm and Neudegg Alm, and you spontaneously feel like a short break with a cool drink.From the terrace you can clearly see how the route continues. With fresh energy you then walk further along the Leidalmbach, with the sound of splashing mountain water in the background. You walk into the shady forest, where it stays nice and cool on hot summer days.At the Brandner Hochalm you have a beautiful panorama over the entire valley, after which the path gets narrower and narrower. The trail then leads to the Kleine Scharte, a beautiful secluded stretch of genuine wilderness, interrupted only by the longest ski run in the Eastern Alps. Can you imagine what the landscape looks like in winter with a good layer of snow?Eventually you will arrive at the Schlossalm, where unspoiled nature is intertwined with today's comforts. You can reach the Schlossalm by gondola both in winter and in summer.The five-minute ascent to the cross at the top of the Hirschkarspitze is worthwhile for the view alone. From here you can see the Gastein Valley in its full length for the first time. If you look in the direction of Dorfgastein, you will see exactly the route you have already traveled. And if you look towards Bad Gastein, you can see the beautiful Hohe Tauern in the distance.After the Hirschkarspitze you can easily reach today's end point, the Hofgasteiner Haus. Moreover, you are already halfway through the six-day tour of the Gastein Trail.Tip: do you want to experience even more during this third stage? There is a large playground for children at the Schlossalm. People looking for more adrenaline can do one of the Klettersteige or other short climbs. For extra kilometers, enthusiasts walk the extra to the Mauskarspitze (about an hour's walk) or the Türchlwand (about an hour and a half). After this extra climb you will be rewarded with a unique panorama at the top.

      The second stage of the Gastein Trail starts after a wonderful night on the Heinreich Alm. Here, high between the mountain tops, there is a wonderful silence. Get ready for a hike through scenic landscapes and rustic mountain wilderness.You start today's walk with a climb to the charming Heinreich Chapel and past the rustic Kokaseralm. Your daily worries fade into the background with every step you take. This rest in body and limb can only be found in the mountains. You walk across alpine meadows and see and hear the herds of cows that graze here, while you can already see the Präau Hochalm in the distance.During this stage you will cross many streams and rivers. Waterproof shoes are therefore a good idea, but so is an extra pair of dry socks. You exchange them on a "dry sock bench" that is in different places, especially for this purpose.You will pass various pastures, such as the Wölflalm, the Gröbneralm and the Walchalm. Note that you cannot go to all meadows for a snack or a drink. Even higher you suddenly see the valley again and for the first time you can also see the villages of Bad Hofgastein and Bad Gastein.Enjoy the view and the tranquility, and walk at your leisure to the final destination of this second stage: the Biberalm. A wonderful evening is guaranteed with an unparalleled view of the graceful Hohe Tauern in the south.

      Get ready to hike through idyllic alpine meadows and along wild mountain peaks. This first stage of the six-part Gastein Trail starts in Dorfgastein, at the parking lot of the Fulseck lift to be precise. You can make a stopover at the local tourist office if you wish.After a short walk through the authentic mountain village, cross the water and follow the path to Unterberg. This is where your mountain hike really starts and you walk in the direction of the Amoser Alm. Along the way you will pass the Bärenkneipp, great to put your feet in the cold water.You climb higher and higher and after the Amoser Alm the next checkpoint is the Stoffalm. A beautiful and truly authentic Alm, which is in use as a holiday home. Below you the valley gets smaller and smaller, and from this height you always have a beautiful view of the valley where you come from.The road continues through a forest and after a steep climb the Drei Waller chapel comes into view. The pass where the chapel is located is at an altitude of 1,425 meters and is an old pilgrimage site. Hikers immediately recharge their batteries here. Is it not because of this special place, or because of the unique view of the enclosed valley. You can continue!On to the Rauchkögerl, from where you have a view of the vast Salzach valley, which forms a special contrast with the landscape of the Gasteinertal. You have now arrived at 1,810 meters and continue your breathtaking journey at great heights, over rolling mountain ridges and through impressive old forests.From here you descend only a short distance, so the view remains beautiful. You walk over the Bettlersteig, an old connecting path at the foot of the Bernkogel, to your final destination: the Heinreich Alm.Do you have any energy left? Then stick to your walk for half an hour and climb to the Tagkopf. Here you can enjoy the tranquility of the sunset at the top.

      Away from the hustle and bustle and into the romance.There is a lot going on in summer and winter in the Angertal. If you feel like a quiet winter hike, this is the place for you. Just follow this route - the Angertal romantic path - and find out why.At 1,180 meters you hike in the footsteps of the miners to the end of the valley. Who or what you come across? First of all one or the other skier on the descent from the mountain, cross-country skiers who are just getting on their skis, and like-minded winter hikers.You trudge past the valley station in the Angertal, between the Hirschenhütte and the Alpengasthof Angertal - into which it is worthwhile to return on the way back - through and further towards the valley head. Where the trees finally become denser, it becomes calmer again. And you can enjoy the pleasant silence and soothing mountain air. The same path takes you back to the lively valley, which also led you towards the quiet side of the Angertal.You can reach the Angertal by car or ski bus, which brings winter sports enthusiasts into the Angertal several times a day (gastein.com/service/mobilitaet-vor-ort).

      Small round - big effect.The walk from Harbach to the Präaubauer and back to the Luggau district of Dorfgastein proves in many ways to be the "perfect little round". For example, for "kicking your legs" after dinner (please do not forget your headlamp), a cozy round with the family or going for a walk with your dog.Past meadows and forests, starting from Harbach, you make your way over the Alte Bundesstraße on the sunny east side of the valley. After a while you cross the Gasteiner Ache and hike next to the railway line, past a small chapel and through Luggau back to your starting point.

      Trudge through the breathtaking backdrop of Sportgastein ...... and forget space and time. It is not the same with a few hikers who set off into the dreamy high valley. Once you have arrived, you will immediately see what we are talking about: The spacious, sunny valley floor welcomes winter sports enthusiasts of all kinds. From cross-country skiers to skiers - yes, you will even see a few dog sleds flashing past you with a little luck.But the Nassfeld also proves to be a unique area for hiking. The glittering snow, the historic houses that date back to the gold mining era, a frozen waterfall here and there ... It is already one of the most beautiful places of strength that the Gastein Valley has to offer.Speaking of power: after an extensive round, you can of course fill up on site. For example in the Valeriehaus, which welcomes its guests every day in winter.The best way to get to Sportgastein is by bus (gastein.com/service/mobilitaet-vor-ort) or your car (note: there are toll fees on the road).

      Hiking - on the sunny side of the Gastein Valley.Are you longing for the sun? You are certainly not alone - now in winter. But on the so-called "circular hike over the villages" just right. Because it always leads you on cleared paths to where it is sunniest in the Gastein Valley.So always follow the sun! The circular hiking trail leads you through all southern districts of Bad Hofgastein. Starting in the town center, you first hike on the sunny east side of the valley to the Gastein bathing lake and back over the west side, past the Weitmoser Schlössl into the village.A nice round that is not only scenic, but also culinary. On the way there are some traditional Gastein businesses that are happy to cater for you. From the pork knuckle to the classic Sacher cake - you won't leave this hike on an empty stomach.
