St. Anton and its quarters Nasserein, St. Jakob and St. Christoph is located in the holiday area Arlberg - Paznaun - Ischgl. The emblem illustates three mountains, green with white peaks, on which the Tyrolean eagle is enthroned. St. Anton, a popular winter sport resort, is also the home of Franz Schneider, one of the ski pioneers and founder of the “Ski School Arlberg”. If you would like to know more, just visit the ski museum and museum of local history! Another curiosity: featuring an area of about 165 sqkm, St. Anton is larger in area than Liechtenstein. Enough space for varied holidays…
Beside the large number of possibilities you have in the mountains like for example hiking tours and climbing tours, there are also several offers in the valley. In Nasserein, there is for instance the only golf course of the Arlberg. This green is not only a challenge for beginners! However, if you are seeking more adventures, you can try canyoning, rafting in mountain torrents or literally have an airing… paragliding.
In winter, however, the skiing area St. Anton am Arlberg promises fun and action up the Valluga mountain on 2,811 m asl. All services are accessible with one ski pass: 278 km of ski slopes and 79 lift facilities. Worth seeing is above all the new Galzigbahn valley station with the impressive big wheel. May we give you warning? In the evenings you cannot simply take a rest, because St. Anton is famous for its nightlife. International flair dominates the pubs, bars and discos along the village street and of course at the valley station. No need to say that fun and action are guaranteed!
Our recommendation: every year there is a film festival: “mountains, people and adventure”, that’s the motto, when cinephiles come from near and far to St. Anton am Arlberg!
