A roaring mountain waterfall, huffing of horses when the wedding coach arrives, the echo of alpine horns – couples wishing to be married with a country style harmonious celebration will find the “Hunter’s Wedding” the ideal basis for doing so in their personal way.
An old timer or a horse-drawn carriage, marriage in one of the beautiful churches in the town or in a pilgrimage church, champagne reception with a plenty of flair on the Panorama terrace of the MONDI-HOLIDAY Bellevue hotel at the centre of Bad Gastein, or the party in a country ambience of the “Hunters’ House”: you can make your choice.
Your wedding could look completely like this:
The bridal couple is picked up at the hotel by a horse-drawn carriage decorated with flowers, driving them through the impressive town to the church. After the marriage ceremony, the horses bring the fresh wife and husband to the roaring Gastein waterfall. All is prepared here for the dreamlike wedding photos! Then they head back to the Bellevue to have a champagne reception on the festively decorated terrace of the Bellevue with a fantastic view over Bad Gastein. Afterwards, they just need a few steps to reach the “Hunters’ House”, a fine restaurant with stylish rooms, where the party takes place in a noble country ambience.
The restaurant “Jägerhäusl” (hunters’ house) used to be the meeting place of Archduke Johann with his hunters. Have atmospheric music played on guitar, dulcimer and zither - the “Tanzlmusi” takes care for a fitting background of your great day.
Your personal guide will accompany you in a prolonged historical walk through the history-rich Bad Gastein. The tour leads from the Bellevue hotel through the town centre and then along the waterfall, the landmark of Bad Gastein. It runs on over the many steps downhill to visit the thermal springs. 5 million litres of hot thermal water at nearly 50 degrees Celsius come out daily from 18 springs! Apart from that, you will learn a lot about the famous past of Bad Gastein – about emperors and kings, prominent guests from over the world, legends, gossip... and naturally the interesting information about the healing caves with their remarkable properties...
On the bike, you easily climb uphill to a simple alpine chalet amongst untouched nature. Approximately 3 kilometres of cycling routes lead along the Gastein Ache stream, the former mining location. From there on, past the “Our Lady of Good Counsel” pilgrimage church, the route follows the stream to an alpine alm surrounded by untouched nature. You will be welcome by home made Bauernkrapfen cakes and coffee – and then the undisturbed tranquillity and a marvellous view will be your reward for your biking efforts in the mountains!
An appealing funicular traverse up to the Stubnerkogel peak with an offer of champagne or seltzer, and then, after a refreshment prepared at 2246 meters above sea level, follow roughly two hours of walking down into the valley. A superb view of the mountains and of Bad Gastein deep down is replaced by the experience of a dense forest and by walking through flowering meadows along gurgling streams. Pure mountain idyll!
