Sankt Anton am Arlberg Things to Do

  • The Valluga rules

    I could be a snow bore at this pint and witter on about how great the skiing is at St Anton, especially run 37 at the top of the Kappel....sorry.Instead, may I just recommend that at any time of the year the trip up to the top of the Valluga mountain is well worth the trip. You can see for bloody miles.It's three stage affair. First you ascend on...

From St. Anton you can take a regional bus it cost you around 6 euro for a return ticket or you can go...

Sankt Anton am Arlberg Restaurants

  • Real Austrian food

    If you like me like to taste the traditional cooking of the country you are visiting you might like visit Fuhrmann - Stube. The prices are modest to the normally very overpriced St. Anton and food is basic Austrian and in good size portions. You can not make a reservation but you may have a beer in the bar and order your food as you drink it.

Sankt Anton am Arlberg Transportation

  • Excellent connections by train

    St Anton benefits from lying on the main railway line that runs through from Vienna into Switzerland. It therefore recieves a steady stream of international trains including the 'eurocity'.A few years back they spent millions moving the line to the other side of the valley, just a few hundred feet - but what a difference it has made to the town....

  • The railway station

    In 2001 St. Anton am Arlberg got a new railway station It is made in a very nice way compared to the relative small community it is places as a part of. Its is to describe it made as a part of mountain wall just opening up to give room for the station in it self where after the rails exit into the mountain tunnels again. For this it has won more...

  • Recommended even for non-skiiers

    I bought a single return, to include the Galzigbahn, and Valluga I and II cable cars. The view from the top of the Valluga II (2811m) was well worth the EUR 22 (EUR 4 as a deposit on your liftcard) I paid. Views are outstanding. The ride is in three stages:1) Galzigbahn (cable car)2) Valluga I (cable car)3) Valluga II (6 man gondola)There are...

Sankt Anton am Arlberg Warnings and Dangers

  • Stuben area (Albona I lift)

    I where told by some who have had an apartment in St. Anton for years that the Stuben area should be very good. I did not get this impression myself the first lift (Albona I) did something to it, it was old and I got catapulted of it to a 2-3 meter drop. As a snowboarder this is not nice as you legs might get injuries and I did get a twist in my...

  • Medical insurance

    Remember to have a good medical insurance as the off-piste skiing here is some of the best in the world (if we just would have been so lucky that there would had been some more snow when we there!!) If you need to be rescued during your skiing there is a cool service, but I am sure also very pricy (if the insurance do not cover it) opportunity to...

Sankt Anton am Arlberg What to Pack

  • Sunny delight - bring your sunglasses

    Sunglasses are well recommended if you intend to go up the mountains - the sun on the snow can dazzle you a lot and slowblindness can occur. Sturdy shoes, preferably water and snowproof are adviseable. No real things you should bring - the pharmacies usually have at least one open during the night. If you go out drinking though, a really supply...

Sankt Anton am Arlberg Favorites

  • Ski slopes map is important

    St Anton offers plenty of slopes in different "colors". Even if you are a beginner or an expert you will find slopes that you will enjoy. What will make a skiing day even better is to carry with you a map of slopes. Maybe this advise is an "evident" for you but beginners like myself it wasn't. A map helps you to plan your day and the slopes you...

  • Take your ski pass back...

    Skipasses now come in the form of a magnetic strip card, which carries a EUR 4 deposit. When you have finished with your pass, return it and you will receive your deposit back. That way you have enough for a final beer in St Anton. As a non-skier taking the Vallugabahn up to 2811m and enjoying the view was great - it was so quiet up there, the...
