Closest airport to Bad Gastein is Salzburg, about 90 km away.
The only international train that leaves London is the Eurostar which only runs direct ski train services to the French Alps, see http://www.eurostar.com/UK/uk/leisure/destinations/direct_services/ski_train.jsp.
You can of course take the Eurostar to Brussels and change there for for ski trains to Austria, but only on FRIDAYS, see http://www.travelbite.co.uk/news/europe/austria/bergland-express-the-ski-slopes-$1238721.htm
However, for Bad Gastein, the best route from Bruxelles-Midi appears to be the 13:09 to Zurich, arr. 21:24, and then the 21:40 Euronight service to Bad Gastein, arr. 05:01 on Saturday.

there are more than enough restaurants in Bad Gastein, because this is one of our most famous holiday resorts.Not bad at all, "Bad" means bath, so there are healing springs as well.
Bad Gastein is the most expensive there, but there are also Dorfgastein and Hofgastein, that are a bit cheaper BUT without healthy springs.

Travel Tips for Badgastein

Up-hill and down-hill

by Manara

The oldest part of Bad Gastein is the one near the waterfall and to the North of it, which means a bit downhill, towards the valley.
Evidence of it is the fact that the oldest churches are there. Now also the Congress Centre and the Casino are there, as well as most hotels.
The modern part, where most of the permanent inhabitants live, is the one South of the railway station. Here is where you can find the supermarkets, the school, the foot-ball ground, the Police station and several doctors' surgeries.

St. Nicholaskirche - the oldest church in the area

by Tolik

Late Gothic St. Nicholaskirche, dating from 1389, with a central Gothic pillared aisle and valuable frescoes, the serpentine pulpit (15th century) is the province’s oldest.

It has also original Paracelsus’ monument on the backyard. Bad Gastein is one of parts of Austria which boast Paracelsus connections. He was impressed by the curative properties of the local spa waters. Paracelsus also lived in Villach as a young man (his father practiced medicine here from 1502 to 1532), studied the respiratory ailments of Tyrolean silver-miners and died in Salzburg in 1541.

Some History, Part I

by Manara

These valleys have been inhabited since ancient times. The latin name of this valley, as mentioned in medieval documents, was Gastuna. By the 16th century the reputation of its warm waters and their therapeutic power was widespread, and many people travelled here for this reason in the summer. At that time the name of Bad Gastein was Wildbad Gastein.
In 1807 the emperor Franz I inspected the place personally, in order to decide about projects to build infrastructures to take advantage of the spas as an economic resource. The thermal springs were at an altitude of 1000 metres above sea level, on the slopes of a steep mountain, so it seemed convenient to convey the water to the village of Hofgastein, which lies in the valley. That village, whose name became Badhofgastein, is still nowadays a thermal resort.

Bike ride to Böckstein

by Theomis

During our stay in Badgastein we rented bikes (at our hotel, but there is also a sports store near the train station where you can rent bikes) and went on a bike ride to Böckstein, south of Badgastein. It's a short but beautiful trip. Unlike the streets of Badgastein, there are no steep hills on the way to Böckstein.

Badgastein, grandeur from the past

by Roeffie

Badgastein was one of the first touristic centers of Austria. Several royal persons stayed in the hotels of Badgastein. At has a whole different characteristic than other alpine towns.

At something royal and expensive to it! Nice for a short visit! Main thing to see here is the Gasteiner Ache, a small fast flowing river that cuts Badgastein in two halves.

Greetings Roeffie
