A Day in St. Anton am Arlberg

Located directly on the train route from Tirol to Vorarlberg, St. Anton am Arlberg is just over an hour west of Innsbruck. One of the world’s oldest and best-known ski resorts, St. Anton lies at the foot of a vast mountain range with some of the best skiing terrain you’ll find anywhere in the Alps.
Morning
Start your day with a hearty breakfast at your accommodation and visit one of several sports shops to rent your ski or snowboard equipment. On a sunny day at the Arlberg, there is nothing better than grabbing your skis and heading straight to the cable car. Get your lift pass and you are good to go. The Arlberg Ski Pass grants you access to a total of 88 mountain railways and lifts, 189 miles (305 km) of groomed slopes and 125 miles (200km) of deep powder and granular snow slopes, stretching from St. Anton via St. Christoph, Lech, Zürs, Stuben, Schröcken via Warth offering unlimited possibilities.

 
Hit the freshly groomed slopes around Galzig, Gampen, Kapall and St. Christoph. Take the Valluga II cable car up to the viewing platform at an altitude of 9,222 ft (2810m). From here enjoy views of Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Italy. Next, descend down the original route of the White Thrill into the valley. Finish off the morning with lunch at one of the many ski huts you’ll find on the mountain. If you want a special treat, see if you can get a spot at the terrace of the Verwallstube at the top of the Galzigbahn. The highest gourmet restaurant in Austria, the Verwallstube is known for its amazing fish specialties and stunning views.

Afternoon

Afternoons present two options. Either ski to your heart’s content and cap the day with a stop at one of the mountain’s après-ski bars, or explore the other attractions St. Anton has to offer. For those who want to explore the village, stop at the Arlberg-Kandahar-Haus, a charming villa/museum that vividly tells the story of how this sleepy Alpine village became one of the most famous ski resorts in the world. For an active afternoon, consider cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing, sleigh rides, paragliding, ice-skating or curling. Indoor options include bowling or indoor climbing, tennis or squash at the arl.rock Sport Park. You’ll find a state-of-the-art gym and swimming pool and spa at the ARLBERG-well.com wellness and conference center.

Evening

Take a leisurely stroll through the village for a little bit of window-shopping and people-watching. For dinner, head to one of the traditional restaurants in St. Anton. See if you can get a table in one of the cozy, wood paneled “Stuben” and choose from a delicious menu of authentic Tyrolean specialties. For night-owls, an evening in St. Anton is never completed without a dancing well into the night at one of the several renowned clubs. Just ask the locals!
