305 slope kilometres, 200 kilometres of ski routes as well as 88 mountain railways and lifts are what make the Arlberg Austria’s largest skiing area. But it is also the culinary variety in the world’s fifth-largest skiing region that wins over its guests every single year.
The best tool to always stay up to date and never lose track of what’s going on is the Ski Arlberg App which provides information on current events, highlights in the skiing area, weather conditions, and opening hours and helps you never get lost while you’re on your boards. Not even when you’re on the Run of Fame, a spectacular circular ski route that covers 85 slope kilometres and 18,000 altitude metres – always following in the footsteps of the Arlberg’s pioneers. The longest ski run is called Weisser Rausch and with its challenging 9 kilometres the more athletically minded guests can look forward to pure adrenaline from Vallugagrat ridge to the valley station of Galzigbahn.
If you’re looking for a challenge – you’ll find it all over the skiing area. The young and young at heart can head for the funslope on Galzig. Freeskiers and boarders can enjoy themselves at stanton park on Rendl and show off their spectacular jumps while wannabe-racers can enjoy a timed run down Stanton Speed and maybe set a new record.
When you start feeling peckish there are numerous places in St. Anton am Arlberg winter sports lovers can choose from. While gourmets will head to award-winning Verwallstube on Galzig which treats its guests to one-of-a-kind cuisine and ensures unforgettable romantic hours during the Candlelight Dinner every Thursday night – complete with piano music – lovers of faster cuisine will head to the Italian restaurant Bella Vita or Kandahar Restaurant for authentic fare. Before you head back to the slopes, though, it’s always worth paying a visit to Patteriol Bar where the delicious coffee is always served with a smile.
An impressive timber construction with shingles and glass can be admired on Gampen where Himmeleck, the Gampen restaurant, beckons; or Gampen Bar on the sun terrace – all perfect spots for a well-earned break. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Gampen is not just busy at lunchtime. Delicious Tyrolean cuisine and live music are served on sleigh-riding nights before the guests rush down the 4.3-kilometre natural tobogganing track into the valley.
One of many reasons to head up to St. Anton’s Rendl certainly is its culinary offer. A tasteful and stylish combination of tradition and modern elements results in a menu that boast both, wonderful wok dishes and typical hut-fare.
