Travel Tips for Sankt Gallenkirch
A lot of people bring their own ski gear when on holiday.
But we decided a couple of years ago to hire equipment in our holiday destination St. Gallenkirch.
Main reasons to do:
- always the latest ski models
- if necessary service every day
- possibility of exchange of equipment
- don't need to bring our own ski's in a ski box on the car
- no need for maintenance of our own ski's
St. Gallenkirch has three shops, which offer rental ski's:
Intersport Montafon at the bottom station of the Valisera Gondola;
Sport Thomas in the village; this is a smaller shop;
Harrys Sportshop, along the main road in the village.
We always hire at Harrys Sportshop with friendly and helpful local people. They charge fair prices, which vary (for the latest ski's) from € 18,- per day till € 89,- for 6 days.
Of course they rent also snowboards, ski boots and other equipment.

Gargellen - worth a ski visit
St. Gallenkirch is centrally located in the Montafon area and that makes it easy to go to one of the other ski mountains by car or bus.
Gargellen is one of the places we mostly visit on one of the days of our holiday. It is situated almost at the end of a narrow valley, about 8 km's from St. Gallenkirch, surrounded by impressive mountains.
The village lies on a height of more than 1400 metres and has always snow. And driving through the valley we often come from spring in St. Gallenkirch to the 'real' winter in Gargellen.
With 47 km's ski runs the ski area is not too big, but for one day it is just enough to explore some other slopes in Montafon. The most famous ski run in Gargellen is the so called 'Täli run'. Along the runs we just enjoy the have a coffee with a 'strudel' in one of these authentic rustic lodges. Due to the (mostly) wintry road conditions to Gargellen: never forget to take snow chains with you !!
St. Gallus Church
If staying in St. Gallenkirch why not visiting the St. Gallus Church; or on a rainy day or just after a day of skiing or walking in the mountains.
In the year of 1307 stood a chapel on the present location of the church in the middle of the village. The St. Gallus Church itself was built in 1474 (the choir dates back to this time) and extended in 1669. In the same year a new steeple was built. The last restoration was finished in 1999.
Although we have stayed many times in St. Gallenkirch we first visited this little gem in 2008. Outside it looks quite regular, but the interior offers a lot of different styles within one church like gothic, baroque and rococo. The church is richly decorated with frescos, images, has some beautiful paintings on the ceiling and a wood carved pulpit.
In the church you can buy a booklet with an explanation of all the images and paintings.
The church is open for visitors; use the door on the right hand side (standing on the main road in St. Gallenkirch). Holy mass: Sundays at 8.45am and 6.30pm (7.30pm in summer).
