The Gastein Photopoints in Skigastein

High up in the Gastein mountains, you’ll be treated to an awe-inspiring vista, and you’ll also encounter a distinctive emblem of Skigastein – the word “Gastein” in impressive giant capital letters. The region’s name stands as a remarkable wooden structure positioned next to the Schlossalmbahn mountain station in Bad Hofgastein. Yet, this structure also serves a purpose beyond its visual appeal: It seamlessly melds exceptional mountain experiences with comfortable seating and a holiday-snapshot-worthy motif.

With an impressive height of about three meters, the Gastein letters cannot be overlooked. They fit perfectly into the Gastein Panorama World and are considered a sought-after photo motif among mountain lovers. Convenient bonus: The letters also double as a cozy seating option on the mountain. Following an exhilarating hike or a delightful journey on the Schlossalmbahn cable car, you can sit down on the letters, enjoy the fresh mountain air and take in the magnificent views surrounding you.
