St Anton

St. Anton

St Anton is a resort that lives, sleeps and breathes skiing

The Tirolean village of St Anton has forged a reputation as one of the world's most exciting - and extensive - ski areas. It's held in such high esteem that many experienced skiers speak of it in hushed tones, and it's often referred to as 'the cradle of skiing'.

The first properly-organised ski school was founded here, by the legendary Hannes Schneider, and those visiting for the first time soon realise that this is a resort that lives, sleeps and breathes skiing.

So it's no surprise that the vast array of slopes beneath the mighty Valluga boasts some thrilling challenges for accomplished skiers. But this doesn't mean that the less experienced and even newcomers to the sport are neglected. There are a number of excellent beginners' areas - one of them very close to Supertravel's flagship Eden Rock chalet in the Nasserein area of town.

St Anton links with four other villages, Stuben, St Christoph, Zurs and Lech in the Arlberg region, plus a new connection to Warth and Schrocken, to form a ski area of vast and mouthwatering proportions - so it's true to say that adventurous skiers will get the most out of this destination.

The 360-degree view from the top of the Valluga is one of the most spectacular in the Alps - and accessible to all via the cable-car.

St Anton also has a comprehensive range of challenging apres-ski! On the slopes, the famous Krazy Kangaruh is iconic, as is the Mooserwirt, where it's said more beer per square metre is sold than at any other bar in Austria. Underground on the Piste is apres-ski with a difference - more mellow with excellent live music including jazz. Favourite lunchtime spots on the slopes includes the renowned Hospiz Alm - which also has a cellar housing Europe's most impressive collection of Bordeaux.

The village is lively and full of Tirolean character. Favourite watering holes include Base Camp, with its terrace at the foot of the slopes, the village centre Kandahar, with sport on big screens, the Piccadilly for a pub atmosphere and Bodega for tapas.


Hospiz Alm
Gourmet cuisine in the Tyrol

Hospiz Alm

The Hospiz Alm is a perfect symbiosis of excellent cuisine and Alpine lifestyle. Behind the deceiving facade of a traditional skiing chalet you will find a veritable gourmet Mecca.

Dine under the starlit sky: head chef Daniel Rauter will spoil you with exquisite culinary delights at the Hospiz Alm hotel restaurant: lobster, scallops and a noble drop of the finest wine from Adi Werner’s wine cellar. On the sun terrace enjoy a glass of champagne and let your gaze wander over the majestic mountain scenery.

A toque is a chef’s pride, especially if it is a toque awarded by the gourmet guide Gault Millau. The Hospiz Alm hotel restaurant in Austria was not only awarded one, but two of these prestigious toques. Everybody who has ever enjoyed a meal at the Hospiz Alm restaurant knows why: the highest art of cooking and the highest quality of ingredients are inseparably entwined. Noble wines from the big bottle wine cellar, delicious, hearty, tender delicacies – the delicious regional Austrian cuisine at the Hospiz Alm will enchant your senses.

Legendary après ski in the Arlberg

Mooserwirt

The Mooserwirt always lives up to its philosophy of being 'probably the baddest après ski bar on the Arlberg Mountain'. The same is true for their second slogan: 'Damn good but damn expensive'.

Playboy Magazine named the Mooserwirt 'the mother of all après ski bars' and the Zeit Newspaper lauded their ‘fascinating' logistics. Kleine Zeitung Newspaper termed the Mooserwirt the 'best après ski bar in Austria' twice and News Magazine once.

It has also appeared on television a lot; in Austrian television, in most German TV channels, in Dutch, UK and Scandinavian TV shows, as well as overseas

The list of awards and accolades could go on and on…
