Why Stay At Hoteldorf Grüner Baum
Celebrating its 100th anniversary, this traditional alpine resort is set amidst lush green meadows in one of Austria's prettiest mountain regions.
A collection of quaint cottages connected by meandering walkways, Hoteldorf Grüner Baum is tucked away in a picturesque valley and has been run by four generations of the same family. Rooms are furnished in the comfortable rustic style typical of the Austrian Alps and are equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi and Satellite TV. Following a day of hiking or skiing in the surrounding Hohe Tauern National Park, head to the on-site spa for a massage or soothe your achy muscles in the thermal outdoor pool said to have therapeutic effects. Occupying a separate chalet, the resort's main restaurant staff culls herbs from the on-site garden, fresh-caught fish from the nearby pond and certified sustainably grown regional ingredients. The hotel is a fun haven for kids with a fully staffed Children's Club offering a variety of indoor and outdoor activities like ziplining, fishing or night excursions and learning how to bake bread.
If you don't feel like walking to the village, catch one of the shuttle busses that frequently commute between the resort and Bad Gastein.
Traveling with babies or toddlers? Pre-order the complimentary Mini VIP Service to find your room stocked with diapering essentials, a potty and even an iPad with an integrated baby cam.
Arrive at W.A. Mozart Airport Salzburg (SZG), which is approximately 62 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 80 minutes of travel time.Kötschachtal 25, Bad Gastein, Salzburgerland, Austria

Why We Love Bad Gastein
At the edge of Hohe Tauern National Park, Belle-Époque style buildings line the streets of the idyllic spa town on the steep mountain slopes. During the winter, it's a paradise for winter sports while warm weather months mean ample opportunities for hiking in the fresh alpine air.
Schareckstraβe 17, Bad Gastein.
Where to Drink: Enjoy your pre-dinner cocktail at the hotel's K&K Hofpotheke Bar. Remodeled from the original Baroque cherry wood interior of a 17th century pharmacy, the bar offers patrons an extensive wine and cocktail selection. Drinks for two €15.
Best Day Trip: Built more than a millennium ago, Mautern Castle served as toll station and is perched on a lofty outcrop. Peek into eerie dungeons, try on medieval style clothing, learn how to load an old musket or climb the 145-feet lookout tower granting you a breathtaking 360-degree view across the entire region. Admission from €6 per adult.
Outdoor Excursion: 25 miles north of the hotel, Liechtensteinklamm was outfitted with walkways and opened to the public in 1875. A wild waterfall runs between the stalwart rock walls. At 1000 feet this is the deepest accessible gorge of the Austrian Alps. Admission €4.50 per adult.
