From Zurich, we recommend Arlberg Express who run regular shuttles between the airport and various locations in the Arlberg.

It’s about a 10hr drive once in mainland Europe to reach St Anton. If driving, you will need a Vignette for driving on the motorways and certain other main roads, including the S16 which is the main road serving St Anton. The benefits of driving are no luggage restrictions and the option of an extra day skiing during a week’s holiday.

Post Office – Can be found on the Postplatz, here you can also buy stationery and some electronics. If you are looking for things to do you can visit the tourist information, at the bottom of the big roundabout. 

One of our favourite non-skiing activities is rodeling, this is tobogganing down a road covered in snow and is great fun! Take the Nassereinbahn up and then head down the 4.2km track towards Nasserein. During the day (open from 12:00) it is included in your lift pass, and then on Tuesday and Thursday evening they turn on the floodlights and operate the Nassereinbahn for rodeling from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. The rodelbahn will only be open when the snow conditions allow it. 

The ski show on Wednesdays night is definitely worth your time! Put on some warm clothes and take one of the extra free buses to town to watch the show. It starts at 9:00pm and lasts for about an hour. You’ll get to see demo skiing, learn something about the history of skiing and watch some fireworks! It takes place at the Karl Schranz Stadion, just follow the crowds heading for the bottom of the floodlit piste.

Visit the wellness centre to go for a swim, relax in the sauna or try the ice skating rink.

Arl.Rock is a “sports park” located near the train station. The park offers world class indoor sports facilities and indoor and outdoor climbing in a friendly and fun environment. There‟s something for everyone – Climbing, Tennis, Bowling, bouldering, squash, and more. It‟s a great way to get out with family or friends, cut loose and grab some smiles.
