One of Europe's top ski resorts with a vast ski area which also covers the villages St Christoph, Zürs and Lech
St. Anton am Arlberg is a snowy paradise of the highest calibre in winter, and a hotspot for hikers and climbers in the summer. But there’s more - St. Anton am Arlberg is a modern holiday resort that has retained its traditional appeal. Hospitality and Tyrolean customs are as much a trademark of the village as its international, cosmopolitan character. And not only does it offer a colossal backdrop of peaks and popular (skiing) mountains, it also has all the comforts you would expect from an international holiday resort.
St. Anton am Arlberg has enjoyed a world-famous reputation for decades. There are 94 mountain railways and lifts, 340 kilometres of prepared pistes and 200 kilometres of fantastic powder and granular snow slopes throughout the region, offering unlimited possibilities.
For those who want fun and relaxation off the slopes, facilities include a network of cross-country ski trails covering almost 40 km, a fun park, an illuminated toboggan run, ice rinks for skating and curling, as well as the ARLBERG-well.com centre with its indoor pool, sauna and steam baths. A wide range of sporting opportunities jostle for position with fantastic wellness packages and homely Tyrolean dishes made with local produce. The multi-functional sports centre arl.rock makes numerous indoor activities and diverse kinds of indoor ball games possible as well as climbing, including a Via Ferrata climbing route leading to the roof. Ice-climbing is equally possible in the winter as is bouldering in all seasons.
St Anton has long been a very popular resort - especially with British visitors. It's attractions include some very challenging terrain, including extensive off-piste. There is a lively, bustling centre with traditional alpine atmosphere, and St Anton's apres ski is also world-famous.
In summer, St. Anton am Arlberg is the perfect setting for a classic mountain holiday. Walking, climbing or mountain-biking, tennis, squash or golf, horse-riding, rafting or paragliding...there are many ways of enjoying an active leisure break in St. Anton’s healthy mountain air – in summer as well as in winter.
