Stunning penthouse ski / summer apartment, central Bad Gastein, with pool



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
3/4 Bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment to sleep 8 with pool and hotel facilities

Schillerhof Top 29 is a stunning 115m2 penthouse apartment with 3 double bedrooms and 3 ensuite bathrooms + 1 extra sleeping area that can be closed off as a 4th double bedroom. The apartment is surrounded by a 100m2 terrace offering spectacular panoramic 360 degree views over Bad Gastein, the surrounding mountains and Gastein valley. All rooms have access onto the terrace. The apartment is fully equipped with all modern amenities including TV, DVD and CD player and has a fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher. Bedding, towels, and a washing machine (in separate cloakroom) are provided. The lift opens directly into the apartment. Car parking is provided. The all-year swimming pool and wellness area (jacuzzi and sauna) are shared with the other residents of the Schillerhof building. In summer, the glass doors of the swimming pool open to allow access to the beautiful sun lawn with fantastic views. The Schillerhof also boasts a restaurant with an outdoor terrace.

Skiing: The Schillerhof is ideally located for skiing: The Graukogel chairlift and ski area is situated directly behind the building, just across the road. More extensive skiing at Stubnerkogel is a 3-minute bus or car ride away (bus stop next to the Schillerhof). Access to Sportgastein and other resorts in the Ski Amade area is by bus or car. The Schillerhof has a heated ski and boot room, but skis and boots can also be left at the ski rental shop directly under the Stubnerkogel lift if preferred.

Access to centre of town and shops: A steep footpath leads down to the town centre (maximum 7 minutes walk downhill - a little longer uphill!) where you can sample the restaurants, bars, tea rooms and browse the shops. For grocery shopping, a car is useful, or you can take the 3-minute bus ride to the Spar supermarket. More extensive shopping and further restaurants, bars and cafes are found in the village below Bad Gastein - Bad Hofgastein. This can be reached by bus or car.

Swimming and spa: The Schillerhof has its own luxurious heated swimming pool and spa facilties, including jacuzzis, sauna and steam showers, and the possibility of booking a massage. In summer, the glass doors of the swimming pool can be opened up to give access to the stunning panoramic balcony and sun lawn where sun beds are provided. There is a beautiful open-air swimming pool with 2 slides at Dorfgastein (about 10km down the valley) and both the thermal spas at Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein provide several lovely swimming pools, also with slides (there is even a pool cinema in the Bad Hofgastein spa!) There is also a beautiful swimming lake next to the golf course of Bad Gastein.

We had a great week in Bad Gastein. I know you said the apartment is a great viewpoint for the new years fireworks, but we were not expecting anything like it - it was incredible!!

The apartment is lovely - a fantastic apartment and a lovely resort. The whole thing was perfect and enjoyed but the entire group - many thanks.

Exceptional !

  • 5 of 5

Splendid and very bright apartment (penthouse). The elevator leads directly into the apartment !

Very large apartment with a very large terrace that runs around the apartment with a breathtaking views of the valley.

The apartment is very well-equipped and very calm. The free access to the swimming pool, the sauna, the jaccuzi were much appreciated !

We have spent very nice holidays in this wonderful apartment in Bad Gastein. We highly recommend it.

An excellent penthouse apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is an superb apartment for exploring Bad Gastein and the surrounding area. The apartment has fantastic views which uplift your spirts every morning when you look out through the windows. Everything is there that you need; it is without doubt comfortable and clean and the hotel manager and his wife are very helpful.

There are lots of walks to do around Bad Gastein and if you have a car you can easily reach the Grossglockner road and glacier, the Krimml waterfall, Kaprun dam, Salzburg and of course the salt mines at Hallein. There are lots of places to eat and some of our favourites were in the next town of Badhofgastein.

We would without hesitation recommend this apartment and a big thank you to Caroline and Steve for sharing their holiday home with us.

Great place to stay!!! Loved every minute of it!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off I would like to thank Caroline and Steve for letting us stay in their stunning penthouse!!! Also we would like to thank the building Managers Ards and Inita, they were great in helping us with everything we needed!

The penthouse- very beautiful inside and out, the beds were comfortable, all the appliances worked great, the views were spectacular!!! It has an almost wrap around deck which made it great in the morning to have a cup of coffee and in the evening to have a cocktail.

I would have to recommend this place to everyone and thanks again for the great stay!!!

Great stay - ski-holiday in apriil

  • 5 of 5

A Penthouse appartment with the greatest view over to the small charming town. You stay at the very top of the building with a 180 degrees terrass all the way around the flat, which gave us the best view, and sun at all time. Take the lift to the bottom and you find a nice swimmingpool with a great view as well. At the time the whirlpools were under repair but it looked nice.

We rented skies&boots next to the lift so the apr. 10 min. walk was a nice start in the morning. Three rooms with doublebeds were in use, pretty spacious and if I remember correctly all had a bathroom as well pluss one WC. All rooms had balcony. We were lucky and had great skiconditions, and it was warm and sunny! this was 26-30.3.We got som really nice tips from Caroline and had a great dinner at the farm up in the hillls. In winter you can go by horse& sledge. At this time of year you go by a one-man-lift. (Costs extra) We had a lot of fun doing it, but if you are afraid of hights - take a look first. They serve a nice Cheese fondu at the very charming farm-restaurant, but you need to reserve the day before according to the menu. We did not know, but got it anyway. Thank you for a great stay Caroline and sorry for the late review - we suddenly bought a new house back home ;) We had an excellent stay and can absolutely recommend it. Perfect place for a perfect holiday.

Totally fab

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. We all had the same first impression - "wow"! The photos just don't compare to being there in person. Waking up to these amazing views was just awesome. There is so much to do here but the first day we could not drag ourselves away as it was so relaxing sitting on the balcony looking down to the views of the valley. Everything was just perfect with the apartment and very clean, could not be faulted. Thank you Caroline for a most easy and stress free way to book a holiday. We will definitely return.

Summer persuits in Bad Gastein include an 18-hole golf course, a beautiful swimming lake, outdoor tennis, and numerous mountain walking and biking trails. Bad Gastein's origins as a world-renowned spa resort also attracts those looking for thermal and radon therapies.
