Luxurious skiing in a pretty Alpine village.
- Tiny village with around 25 buildings, perfect if you’re after a bit of peace and quiet.
- Doorstep access to the Arlberg, now linked to Lech and Zurs to make the largest linked ski area in Austria.
- Dine at the famous Hospitz Alm, with its 600-year-old wine cellar, or head to St Anton for a choice of over 70 restaurants.
One of the highest ski resorts in the Alps, St Christoph is actually 500m above St Anton and has direct access to the enormous Arlberg ski area – 305km of piste, 111 lifts and unlimited potential. What's more, with the four lifts that link St Christoph and St Anton to Lech and Zürs, the Arlberg region is now the largest linked ski area in Austria.
Set in an open snow bowl, St Christoph gained its name in the 14th century, when a shepherd set up a hospice there. In the 600 years since, the village has developed into a fairytale scene, with a focus on traditional hospitality.
Popular with families and couples, St Christoph is home to a few small hotels and inns. The shopping is pretty limited but there are plenty of restaurants serving hearty Alpine cuisine. Evenings are usually spent relaxing in rustic lounges, sipping a glass of wine. If you fancy a wilder night out, stick to St Anton, which is world-famous for having one of the best après scenes in Europe.
