Good place to stop, Good food
no parking in town to be found
Nice little place with some history.... but it was all in Austrian
The Tirol Mountains are gorgeous and trekking and biking through them is a highlight of travelling to Austria. There are cable cars that go up to the moutain tops during the summer and you can take in the views from above. The cables are used during the winter for skiing but the views in the summer from above the mountain tops is just as gorgeous...more
You should also check out the Panorama Badewelt - it really is a super complex - 1 indoor pool, 1 kiddie pool (very nice), indoor water slide, outside there is a olympic sized swimming pool, 2 kiddie pools with more water slides and a playground. Not to mention the surrounding mountain views. Not only that but you can swim through from the indoor...more
For 13.50 Euros you can spend as much time as you like at the Saunawelt. 2 aroma steam rooms, outside sauna, plunge pool, 3 indoor saunas, footwashing section, relaxation area, showers, some with massage jets, some with crushed ice! Really fab complex. You can hire towels or bathrobes for 2 Euros. One tip though: you're not allowed to wear your...more
The town's fountain, just near the main square, gives honour to a roman catholic priest who in 1809 boldly faced the enemy all alone at the entrance of the parish and asked the French general Lefebre in perfect French to spare the village. The general, surprised by the priest´s courage, complied with the request and St Johann was spared...more
St Johann is a good place to go shopping - there are several boutiques selling beautiful clothes, different to what you'd get back home as well as shops for traditional tirolean costumes. Plenty of souvenir shops as well - almost bought this t-shirt as a warning for Richie if he visits many more beer halls ;-)more
The tirolean town of St Johann is one of the larger ones in this region. It lies at the base of the Kitzbuhler Horn in a broad valley at the crosspoint of the Wilder Kaiser valley.It has a colourful, central pedestrian zone full of shops and cafes as well as the beautiful baroque church, which lies just off the main square. It was a lovely way to...more
A very comfortable hotel. A short walk from the centre of the town with its painted housesmore
Stayed from Oct. 23-25, 2007. Had some trouble finding it with the directions I had. I got to the...more
Bunnys Pub is located in the center of the Tirol Mountains and it is on par with any other...more
The Grill is a popular place with the younger set, mostly teenagers and early 20 year olds, in Sankt Johann but I did see a few parents with thier children place orders. You can eat inside and watch tv while you enjoy your food or you can order take-away from the walk-up window. The food is "American", meaning pizza, hamburgers, fries and hotdogs...more
The restaurant/hotel is located at the foot of a mountain that is accsible by a chairlift so that is certainly an added bonus. The service was always good and it is quite cosy as the rooms reflect the Tirolian style. Definitely the CHAMPION SCHNITZEL..( mushroom Schnitzel)Whenever my parents and I went there for dinner I ordered it every day..:) I...more
It was the liveliest place in St. Johann. Although Austria is known for the best after-ski, this region was meant to be one of the quietest. Bunny’s pub proved it wrong though. It was good fun!
Every night there is a different theme: karaoke, live music, 2 eur night etc.
We saw a bunch of young locals going around, taking pictures of everyone and giving out their cards. Most of the people threw it away but for some reasons I kept it. As I found out they take pictures and put it up on their web page. Have a look - http://www.artynet.at
You can get a pretty good idea what’s happening in St. Johann at night time.
Dress Code: Don’t think there is any. The biggest party animals hit the pub straight after the slopes are close so it can get a bit too warm and sweaty there. Mind your feet because ski boots can be a big hazard at the dance floor…
In the town Catholic Church, the pulpit has something I've never seen before in a church. Coming out of the pulpit, there is an arm holding out a cross. Now, I was explained by a local that this is meant to be a symbol meaning that the person reading scripture in the pulpit is a representation of the right hand of God. It's a different way of...more
I also went canyoning whilst in St Johann - this was in 2001 and as it's a dangerous activity it may not still be running. We drove around 1 hour out of town to the drop off point, got decked out in our wetsuits and special shoes and headed off! We started by learning how to abseil. Once this was "mastered" we abseiled down the waterfall into the...more
In summer, St Johann is a fantastic place to try out the adventure sports. On a clear day, you can catch the gondola up to the top of the mountain and paraglide off the top of the black run. I did this as a tandem glide and it was amazing to just sit back and enjoy the scenery. The guide will also let you "drive" while they take some photos of you...more
Our rep told us that the old farmhouses are built with a cowshed at the rear as the cows help to keep the house warm in winter. Find time if you can to have a walk round the rural outskirts of St Johann - a real mix of old farmhouses and modern buildings, all very beautiful and neat.more
