Whether it’s EV charging stations or climate-friendly train connections: As a guest of the Gastein Valley, you can choose from a variety of eco-friendly travel options.

Getting there by car: EV charging stations

The ski resorts of Skigastein have one of the best EV charging infrastructures in the Province of Salzburg. Thanks to a large number of charging stations, electric vehicle drivers can rely on guaranteed mobility, making it easy for them to plan their reach and other details of their trip.

The EV charging infrastructure at Schlossalmbahn ski resort comprises 28 charging points (20 stations at the solar trees, 8 stations at the car park) as well as three charging points at Angertal ski resort. In Sportgastein, you can find the highest-located charging stations in the Province of Salzburg – you can use six charging points directly on site. All EV charging stations are powered by 100 % green energy.

A convenient mobility highlight: Since the 2022/23 winter season, all of Gastein’s cable cars can easily be reached with electric vehicles – there are plenty of charging stations!
