MOUNTAINS OF EUROPE

 

St Anton am Arlberg is located in the Austrian Alps in Europe, east of Zurich (two and a half hours), west of Innsbruck and south of München.

 

The best way to arrive here is by the Orient Express as it stops right in Arlberg. St. Anton is a world class skiing resort and snow paradise. St. Anton is quite unique among other ski resorts because it is a world class skiing area, it has a distinct reputation for its nightlife and it was a pioneer in resort skiing.

 

The Arlberg Ski Club, established in 1901 was the host for the World Alpine Skiing Championships in 2001. The fine skiing is very popular with advanced and expert skiers, but great for beginners also. Austria is very well-known for its ski schools. The region acquired an excellent reputation for winter sports as early as the nineteenth century. The scenery is a picture-book of landscape - so very beautiful it takes one’s breath away.

 

 

There’s undeveloped, stunningly gorgeous nature all around the busy cities. The cities offer a vibrant cultural scene, gourmet restaurants and state of the art spas and wellness facilities for all the relaxation needed for a long day at the ski slopes or hiking through the mountains.

 

 

Once you reach one of the peaks with the unbelievable views, you will understand why hiking is a very popular pastime in Europe. There are a very large number of hiking paths and Alpine huts maintained to make it an easier way to spend several days in the mountains hiking across the country.

 

 

Walk through the quaint little villages and discover a whole new world of local traditions and wonderful hospitality of the local people. Some other sports that are very much enjoyed here in the mountains of Austria are golf, tennis, fishing, paragliding, climbing, mountain biking, swimming, tobogganing, horse sleigh riding, ice skating and yes, even sun tanning!
