Even on holiday, the dog should not be missing. Therefore, holiday resorts that can be reached by car or train are becoming more and more popular. What is actually special about a “holiday with a dog hotel”? What can I do with my dog in Bad Gastein?

What is special about a “dog hotel”?

When choosing accommodation, it is particularly important to check whether dogs are really welcome. Hotels often claim to be dog-friendly, but there are problems with certain issues. If dogs are indeed welcome guests, they are usually allowed everywhere. In addition, there are also one or two offers for the four-legged guests. For example, in Bad Gastein there is the Residenz Gruber, which offers the following for dogs:

  • Dogshop with toys, equipment, clothing and treats.
  • Dog bowls and blankets in the room
  • Dog shower
  • Toys in the garden
  • Important! Dogs also allowed in the restaurant and cafeteria
  • All-round fenced garden
  • Dog massage (the package Wellness for 2 legs and 4 paws is often booked)
  • Dog walking weeks, ideal of course for singles, for example
  • Doga (yoga with dog)
  • Dog training
  • Dog sitting
  • Dog bathing pond and a beautiful sun terrace for masters & mistresses

This means that Residenz Gruber has the largest range of dog holidays in Austria.

So who are the guests with dogs who feel particularly at home? Whether family, couple or single, there is something for everyone in this beautiful place. Because you will find activities to relax, do sports, enjoy the spa or explore the place.

What can I do in Bad Gastein?

Sport for the muscles: Hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ice skating, golfing or swimming.

Relaxation for the soul: forest bathing, spa, yoga, thermal baths, walking or marvelling at the Gastein Heilstollen.

For the kids: In the Residenz Gruber there is a large playground, a playroom, billiards, table football, table tennis and a giant trampoline.

The world-famous Bad Gastein is a magical place, where the waterfall roars through the middle of the town and the town centre is as sophisticated as in the days of the emperor. Böckstein is a small suburb in a more rural location and from here hiking trails start directly into the mountains, simply the perfect offer for a successful holiday with a dog.
