Winter holidays in Bad Hofgastein at Hotel Zum Stern

Time for snow, time for cross-country and downhill skiing in Gastein

The STERN – perfect for your winter holidays in Bad Hofgastein, for your relaxation and for your winter bliss. White snowflakes softly fall to the ground transforming the scenery into a winter wonderland. The province of Salzburg shows off a stunning side with its untouched mountain slopes.

Arrive and enjoy the comfort

A cozy room, excellent cuisine with many specialties and the sauna area “Sternenreich,” which we turn on earlier than in summer, are the perfect combination for winter holidays in Bad Hofgastein with the entire family. Gliding through the snow light as a feather during the day, then stretching out while enjoying the divine mountain scenery and the bright blue sky in the afternoon.

  • Book the ski course for the ski school directly with us at the hotel.

We turn Christmas Eve into a particularly festive experience. We invite you to the “Gasteiner Bergweihnacht” (“Gastein Mountain Christmas”) with piano music, Christmas stories and lighting the Christmas tree. Afterward, we serve a festive dinner and accompany you (if desired) through the snowy landscape to Christmas mass.

We return around midnight. A traditional soup, the strength-giving “Mettnsuppe,” awaits you in our cozy fireplace lounge, the Kaminbar. Merry Christmas!

New Year's Eve

Take your aperitif at our bar in front of the flickering fire and enjoy the exclusive gala dinner in stylish, elegant setting afterward. After the gala dinner a DJ creates just the right atmosphere for you – request your favorite song for dancing in the new year. Following tradition, we dance the midnight waltz on our terrace overlooking the surrounding alpine peaks. Fireworks echo through the valley bathing the mountains in a sea of color. Meanwhile, the midnight buffet, prepared by our chefs, is readied. As an alternative to the gala menus, children and teens can feast from a special buffet if desired. After a good start into the new year, you must have an extended late riser breakfast.

The only thing missing for your winter holidays in Bad Hofgastein is your non-binding inquiry!
