One of the most popular attractions in Bad Hofgestein, at least during summer when the ski slopes are closed to the public is Alpentherme Gastein.
You should spend at least a couple of hours in this facility, or even the whole day if your time permits! It’s really great!
We traveled to Alpentherme Gastein by bike, as the path linking Bad Gastein (our hotel) to Bad Hofgestein along the Gastein Valley is really pleasant.
Alpentherme Gastein is a HUGE complex with many heated pools! It cost 21 Euros each. This was our first visit to this place and while there I kept my camera inside the locker, so you will not see any pictures from inside. But… you will find them in this other post! Please have a look! 🙂
Biking along the Gastein Valley
Traveling by bike is always pleasant and simple as we can be in many places in one single day! After long and delicious time in the thermal pools we got on our bikes and went to visit Europaisher Hof to watch tennis matches during the International Tennis Championship.
My favorite tennis player at Europaisher Hof
On our way back we could see many people enjoying the tranquility of the river valley. People having picnics and swimming in the river were a constant along the way!
I am following the moon….This is the crescent moon on July 9th, Saturday, 2011 at 9pm in beautiful Gastein Valley!
As usual we went to out favorite place in Bad Hofgastein for cold draft beers and good food: Congress Cafe Pizzeria.
From Congress Cafe Pizzeria in Bad Hofgastein we had a late “bike by night” ride back to our hotel in Bad Gastein! 🙂
