Haus Hirt

Bad Gastein is a wondrous place. Waterfalls and large buildings of the Belle Epoque dominate the town. The narrow streets and multistory buildings in the steep slopes have led to the nickname “skyscraper village“. Anyone who visits the Haus Hirt can immerse themselves in this unique atmosphere between Alpine peaks and urban streets. The history of the village and the house are interwoven: Haus Hirt was once a refuge for famous artists such as Thomas Mann, Stefan Zweig and Sommerset Maugham, and then a health resort. Today it has been turned into a Hotel & Spa, providing a brilliant blend of modern spirit and classic hospitality. With a private atmosphere and a creative mix of styles from the 1930s to the present. Small and delicate, mysterious yet uncomplicated, with tradition and heart. A place for the modern freethinker and people who possess the spirit of the age.

Traumhaft! Der Blick vom Frühstücksraum aus ist das absolute Highlight dieses besonderen Hauses. Viel Charme am Berge, am Rande einer mystischen kleinen Stadt in den Bergen. Kinder fühlen sich sauwohl in diesem Haus, die Eltern dadurch sowieso! Absolut weiter zu empfehlen.
