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.
Coming from Munich, take the A8 (Munich – Salzburg) towards Salzburg. From Salzburg, continue on the Tauernautobahn A10 motorway to the Bischofshofen exit (Pongau junction), and continue on the B 311 road to the exit for the Gastein Valley. Follow the main road up to the BAD HOFGASTEIN-WEST entry to the resort. When arriving/departing, you are allowed to drive through the pedestrianized zone.
Arriving from the South, approach via Villach, Möllbrücke and Obervellach to Mallnitz and then use the Autoschleuse (car gets put on a train through the tunnel) to take you conveniently to Gastein.
The nearest car train loading point is in Bischofshofen (approx. 30 km away).
