Bellevue Alm Review
Idyllically located on the east side of the Stubnerkogel, directly on the ski slope, this Alpine hut is a must-visit. One of the oldest in Europe, it's remarkably well preserved, with wooden interiors and a huge open fire. Wooden parlors and a big terrace, with a spectacular view over Bad Gastein, invite visitors in for a substantial meal, followed by a couple of drinks after a hike or long skiing day. Try the roasted Hörnchen (a kind of pasta) with liverwurst hash and endive potato salad, or one of the desserts, such as Kaiserschmarrn or Schwarzbeernocken. The Bellevue Alm can be reached from the center of Bad Gastein in 30 minutes by foot; by car or taxi, depending on weather and road conditions; and during winter by skis or via the restaurant's own chair lift. Reservations are highly recommended during the winter season, as the place is a popular après-ski spot. For the complete Alpine experience stay a night or two in one of the 12 nice rooms.
