In Dorfgastein, both fans of party and lovers of relaxation will find what they are looking for in the evening. Everone thirsty and in a party mood is welcome in the various huts, and the umbrella bars Thomaselli and Salettl are popular meetings points at the valley station. Those who want to stay active after skiing should try the easily manageable panoramic winter hiking path on the high plateau above the valley. Here you can look forward to a stroll with a great view in all directions. A snow shoe trail is available from Fulseck to Arltörl middle station.

Those interested in history can visit Klammstein Castle at the entrance to the valley near Dorfgastein, which has an exhibition on the development of the castle.

Finally, rustic inns and pubs invite you to round off the evening with a cosy get-together.
