Rastoetzen is surrounded by many peaks. One of them is the Gamskarkogel, the highest ‘grass’ mountain in Europe (2467m). This tour can ideally be combined with a hike to the Gamskarkogel. Duration: approx. 1,5h. After a comfortable snack break in one of the alpine huts, you return to Bad Hofgastein. 

The Tour
 The Rastötzenalm is a challenging route for mountain bikers made up of lots of steep serpentines and only very few flat parts. The steep paths already start in town. From the Wasserfallgasse to the bridge and across the pond- the next steep path up to cafe Sonnberg already awaits. Here you go left to the Annencafe. Next, you go up to the three alpine huts through a pine forest.

On the way up to the alpine huts above the Breitenberg part of Bad Hofgastein, you have a beautiful view of the southern part of the Gasteiner valley. Both alpine huts spoil you with homemade delicacies- from beer to ‘Krapfen’. 

The Tour
The Tour starts in the town centre of Bad Hofgastein and leads north, via a part of the Gasteiner bike trail up to the train station Bad Hofgastein. Before you reach the train station, you turn left, cross an underpass and start the climb up through Breitenberg. You can enjoy a spectacular view from there. At the Brandebengut, 1151m high, the trail continues on a forest path. Now you go through a forest where the path is made up of a mix of gravel and tarred streets. Just before you reach the tree line, you get to decide to take the path to either Biberalm or Wiedneralm. From there it’s only a short path to the goal.

The Tour
The starting point is the town centre of Bad Hofgastein. You follow the signs up to the Angertal. This is where the gravel path, leading past the ski centre Angertal, starts. You pass the barrier by the Waldgasthof and take a relatively flat path into the Angertal until you cross the Angertalbach (pond). After the bridge you take the right hand path up. Now you go mainly through forests. After the steepest part, there’s a pond with natural drinking water waiting for you. From there it’s only a few more serpentines until you reach the part above the forest line where the Gadaunerer mountain huts are located. The number of small huts makes this place look like a little village.

This very popular tour leads through the heart of the nationalpark Hohe Tauern. At the foot of the Ankogel, the forest path leads through the side valley.

The Tour
Prossau is located at the end of the Kötschachtal in Bad Gastein. The tour starts at the tourism point in Bad Gastein and leads south across the Karl Heinrich Waggerl street.
