This winter holiday destination St. Anton am Arlberg has been venue for the World Championships in alpine skiing in 2001.
Altitude: 1,304 m asl
St. Anton and its quarters Nasserein, St. Jakob and St. Christoph are 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 in the Arlberg-Kandahar house! A 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 on the 300 km long network of hiking paths, and climbing tours, there are also several offers in the valley. In Nasserein, there is for instance the only green of the Arlberg. The 6-hole golf course of the GC St. Anton am Arlberg 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 Ski Arlberg, the largest skiing area of Austria, promises fun and action up to 2,811 m asl. All services are accessible with one ski pass: 303 km of ski slopes and 88 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 mountain film festival: “mountains, people and adventure”, that’s the motto, when cinephiles come from near and far to St. Anton am Arlberg!
