For our 3-day Austrian mountains tour, the original plan is to Tappenkarsee (Salzberg) for hiking, and stay in a small hut for one night. On the second day climb the Glingspitze (2457m), then go to Bad Gastein and stay in the hotel for one night. On the third day go to Heiligenblut (Kärnten) to see the Grossglockner (the highest mountian in Austria, 3798m) and go back home.
But the hut in Tappenkarsee was already reserved fully, only tomorrow would have a free room for us, So we had to change another plan, and went to visit Bad Gastein town first.
A very old small hotel in Bad Gastein...
...old furnitures inside...
...but very cosy!
The toilet is very small too...
After putting our luggages in the room, we started to sightseeing in Bad Gastein.
These houses in front of our hotel, some of them are hotels, and some of them are the private villas.
On the way to the center of Bad Gastein, there is a small restaurant...
...and some souvenirs shops.
In the small town, there are many hotels.
The center of Bad Gastein.
There's a beautiful waterfall in Bad Gastein.
It runs right through the town center!
Standing on the bridge, which crosses the waterfall, one can have some nice views on the surrounding area.
A small church in Bad Gastein, looked like a rocket, hehe...
In this church, one candle costs 80 cents, we only had one Euro coin, but I still wanted to buy one...
...lighted the candle...
...and put it on the candleholder...
...now I began to pray, and hoped my wishes could come true.
Casino Hotel in the sun.
In Bad Gastein there are many places where you can get some special, healthy water.
They served us well on such a hot day!
This is the Gastein valley.
Hotels are scattered all around of Bad Gastein and the surrounding area.
This is the "Kaiser Wilhelm" memorial.
The German Emporer also liked to visit Bad Gastein.
There are too many hotels in this small town.
Some of them look very cute, and suit the landscape.
Now we arrived the lower reach of the waterfall, too much water splashed on us.
Here is some natural hot water, 42° C!
Then we returned to the town center.
This restaurant had a very nice view, but it was too expensive so we chose another place for dinner.
On the way to seach for a nice restaurant, we found such a funny wood autobike, but I looked like a little cool when I was driving it, hehe!
Hotel Mozart, we went there to take dinner.
Our delicious dinner.
