Bad Gastein is a famous spa and ski resort in alpine Austria. It enjoys a picturesque location nestled amidst the steep slopes of the Hohe Tauern Alps in the extremely picturesque Gastein valley (Gasteinertal), surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of snow-capped high mountain peaks. The town has a population of almost 6000 people. Its altitude is more than 1000 m. It is within the territory of Land Salzburg.
Bad Gastein is well connected to the rest of Austria via road and rail transport. Its train station (in the town centre, on Bahnhof Vorplatz) dates back to 1905, when the Tauern Railway (Tauernbahn) was completed. On the same square (Bahnhof Vorplatz) is the main bus terminal too.
The first historic document mentioning the Gastein Valley with the name "Gastuna" dates back to the 10th century. But it was known even longer ago for its gold ore. Gold mining developed here from ancient times. Another factor attracting people in this very picturesque but severe in the winter valley is its wealth of healing spring waters, containing radon. Bad Gastein has been visited by people seeking cure from various diseases in its hot and cold springs at least since Middle Ages. Among the prominent historic figures who have visited the town can be mentioned Emperor Frederick III, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, Emperor Wilhelm I, Otto von Bismarck and Tsar Ferdinand I of Bulgaria. With the completion of the Tauern Railway in 1905 the town turned into a very popular resort for spa and ski tourists.
Besides its famous thermal springs, the town attracts many visitors for its excellent ski facilities. The World Championships of 1958 were held here. A well organized system of ski chairlifts and gondolas serves many kilometers of excellent ski slopes, suitable for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels.
The main tourist attractions and points of visitors' interest in this picturesque alpine resort include the renovated Congress Centre, the modernized Felsentherme spa centre, the amazing Gletschermühlen waterfall, the medieval Church of St Nicholas (Nikolauskirche) dating back to the late 14th century, the Gasteiner Museum with an interesting display related to the history and traditional culture of the town and the valley, the Gasteiner Heilstollen - a unique health centre in a natural cave gallery.
