St. Anton am Arlberg

Famous ski resort and idyllic mountain village: St. Anton and the holiday region which bears its name draw many visitors from around the world.

The Stanzertal Valley is located in the westernmost corner of Tirol, between the Lechtal Alps to the north and the Verwall Mountains to the south. The holiday region in the valley is named after one of the most famous ski resorts in the Alps: St. Anton am Arlberg. The ski area links several villages on the Arlberg pass and offers more than 300km of pistes, numerous funparks (such as the well-known Stanton Park) and a network of modern lifts and cable cars. The fun and action continues into the early hours of the morning in the resort’s après-ski bars such as the Mooserwirt, Krazy Kanguruh and Bobo's.

Quiet villages, bracing hikes, fine food

The region also has plenty to offer visitors who like to take it easy. Flirsch, for example, is an idyllic village with pretty farmhouses, while Strengen is also known for its attractive houses. Pettneu am Arlberg has a small ski resort ideal for families and is an excellent base in summer for walks and hikes into the surrounding mountains, including the Hoher Riffler (3,168m) and along the Lechtal River Hiking Trail. The Eagle Trail, Tirol‘s longest hiking trail, finishes at the Arlberg pass. Another top tip is a walk through the beautiful Mösli nature reserve. The region is also known for its challenging via ferrata fixed-rope climbing routes and its large network of mountain bike trails. Foodies will find exactly what they are looking for at the Kunst & Kulinarik Festival, an annual celebration of cuisine and culture. This festival, which was only established a few years ago, has already become a firm favourite with many locals, guests and award-winning chefs.

Experienced climbers have long flocked to this region to take on the Arlberger Klettersteig, a climbing route with handholds, footholds and a steel rope anchored to the rock face for safety. Nevertheless, climbers wishing to explore this via ferrata between the Mattunjoch ridge and the Weißschrofenspitze should be sure-footed and have a head for heights – much of the trail leads along a ridge at around 2,500m altitude. During the cold months of the year the region is home to the only via ferrata climbing route in Tirol accessible in winter, located in the Rendl area., © St. Anton am Arlberg/Thomas Klimmer
