Winter walking

I will be a non-skier on hols in Bad Hofgastein this January. Are there many cleared paths for Winter walks and where can I obtain maps? Is the area generally safe for a lone female? I found great walks last March in Mayrhofen and am keen for similar experiences.

Also keen to try the baths on the more Wintery days. Any comments on which are the best and which my three young children might enjoy?

Well, I don't think that the selection on baths (or SPAs) is that big. I only remember one (great) public bath in Bad Hofgastein.


For instructions on winter walking paths I would contact the local tourism board who should know it best. I would also consider a visit of the nearby town of Bad Gastein, which was regularly chosen by the emperor.
