Walking in Bad Gastein

There's no need to exert yourself for a view in Bad Gastein. Simply follow this balcony trail along Kaiserhofstrasse for deep views into the forest-cloaked, mountain-rimmed, villa-studded Gastein Valley. It's an easygoing 45-minute walk, with prime photo ops at the statue of Kaiser Wilhelm, who gave Bad Gastein's curative waters the royal seal of approval by visiting 20 times in the late 19th century.
