There is many opportunities in Bad Gastein. If you want to go shopping, a big recommendation would be Gastein Valley. You have an entire valley to go around looking at the different stores. A tip would be to go here in the evening, why the stores is open until 10pm. Also, who wants to shop during a hot and sunny day?
