Summer solstice on the Gastein peaks

22.06.2024
18:00 - 22:30

When the longest day meets the shortest night, summer in the Alps is greeted every year with spectacular mountain fires and chains of lights along the ridges. As the sun sets, many fires gradually light up the peaks. It seems as if the mountains around Gastein are on fire. You can experience a magnificent view on the 360° panoramic mountain Stubnerkogel at 2,300 metres in Bad Gastein and on the Fulseck with a view of the Bärenkogl in Dorfgastein.

Evening rides up to the summits of Gastein

The Stubnerkogelbahn cable car in Bad Gastein is in continuous operation in the evening from 6.00 p.m. to 10.30 p.m.
Experience a sunset in a class of its own with live music, the sound of alphorns, flickering torches and a warming fire. 
At the Gipfelrestaurant Stubner and the Bergstadl you can savour culinary delights until late into the night. 

The Gipfelbahn-Fulseck cable car in Dorfgastein is also in continuous operation in the evening from 6.00 p.m. to 10.30 p.m.
Experience pure enjoyment with live music and delicacies from Hauserbauer in the Gipfelstadl. Watch as the sun sinks leisurely behind the peaks, illuminated by lights. 

Warm clothing and solid shoes are highly recommended, as it is very cool after sunset in the alpine spring.
