The Österreichische Hof awaits you on the sunny side of the Gastein Valley, in the centre of Bad Hofgastein. Our 4 starts spa hotel stands at the start of the pedestrianized zone, right next to the large Kurpark and the Alpentherme Gastein, surrounded by the Gastein mountains. We offer the ideal place to stay for holidays right in the centre, and yet in a peaceful location.
