StAnton Travel Guide

by our Austria expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyWith its high altitude slopes and excellent snow making facilities, St. Anton am Arlberg is a snowy skiers paradise in winter. And in Summer it's a hotspot for hikers and climbers who consider it the perfect setting for a classic mountain holiday. But whatever the season, St. Anton is a modern holiday resort that has also managed to retain its traditional appeal with Tyrolean customs & hospitality being a trademark of the village.
