A warm welcome to Böckstein
Böckstein is the southernmost district of the world-class health resort of Bad Gastein, directly at the fork in the valley towards Anlauftal / Tauernschleuse on the one hand and towards Naßfeld (Sportgastein) or Heilstollen on the other.
In ancient times (Roman times), Böckstein was the site of a well-known Tauern crossing, the Korntauern. However, Böckstein became known as a mining village. From the 18th century onwards, gold was mined on a large scale in the mountains south of Böckstein, and the Radhausberg bears its name from this period. A mining settlement with an associated museum tells the story of this time.
Today Böckstein is a cosy village, mainly with single and multi-family houses and a few tourist businesses. Anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday away from the tourist centres, but still within striking distance of them, is in the right place here. And you don't have to do without any amenities.
