open in May?

heading for Hinterthal/ Maria Alm on May 19th.

Are the hotels,restaurants likely to be open for business or are we too early in the season?

Last May lots of the restaurants in Bad Gastein were closed but we loved Austria at this time of the year.

Many Thanks

As you found in Bad Gastein - many things close in May in austrian resort areas. - this vacation time for owners and staff - this a very slow time as winter is finished - summer tourism has not begun.

Also a time for repairs and renovation.

You can find enough open that you do not starve or go without lodging but many fewer choices.
