Located in one the snowiest areas in Europe, boasting amazing terrains and more than 100 miles of ski routes, as well as a highly efficient lift system, St. Anton is one of the best skiing destinations.
Though there are nursery slopes and an excellent children’s ski school, St. Anton is admittedly more suited for the advanced skier or snowboarder.
Off The Slopes
The town holds an appeal in itself, with its picture-perfect onion-domed church to the centuries-old timber and stone farmhouses in town. It has plenty of superb non-skiing activities in store.
Enjoy a riot après-skiing fun at the Mooserwirt Bar or the Krazy Kanguruh or a quiet drink at the Underground on the Piste, Murmel Bar, and Hotel Post bar.
Indulge in a spot of culture. Get to know local history and traditions at the Kandahar Haus Museum. Housed in the Lech’s Walsermuseum are historic objects from everyday life, while Huber-Hus Museum is a glimpse into a conventional Alpine farm.
For off-the-slopes action, ride in a horse-drawn sleigh or go on an exhilarating 4-kilometre toboggan run. For off-the-snow days, just south of the town centre, engage in tennis, squash, volleyball, bowling, indoor soccer, and indoor climbing.
A number of hotels offer Luxurious spa services. ARLBERG-well.com and the Wellnesspark Arlberg Stanzertal are excellent options for those in properties without spa facilities.
Staying in St. Anton
There are many hip, relaxed or luxurious hotels in St. Anton; one would definitely suit one’s taste and budget. If not a hotel, then a ski chalet perhaps?

Whatever your choice of activity, on and off the slopes, and where you choose to stay, definitely come to St. Anton to experience a memorable vacation.
