St Christoph

Austria

The pretty resort of St Christoph is small but perfectly formed and is part of the bigger and more well known St Anton ski circuit. The resort itself is a delightful cluster of historic buildings, restaurants and exclusive hotels, but it’s the huge Arlberg ski area that is the big draw here.

The Village

St. Christoph is a one-of-a-kind location; set in an open snow bowl, the traditional village is a hidden gem and is still relatively unknown. Relatively quiet and ski-in/ski-out, St Christoph is fantastic for families, but is also part of the vast Arlberg ski region that Austria is so well known for.

Just a short drive from bustling St Anton and cosmopolitan Zurs and Lech, those who stay in St Christoph truly do get to experience the best of all worlds.

The Skiing

Virtually crowd free, you almost feel like you’ve got your very own private ski lift just a few steps from your front door. The nursery slopes are equally as close so the resort ideal for parents and kids alike.

Returning clients tell us that St Christoph has a certain fairy-tale charm that draws them back year after year, and with its easy connections to the rest of the Arlberg, you can visit St Christoph every year and always have plenty of new runs to try out.

Restaurants and Bars

Thanks to the close proximity of the busy resort of St. Anton, the selection of restaurants and bars is abundant. The Verwallstube or Hospiz Alm, which has the third largest wine cellar in Austria, are very well known in the region and are restaurants we highly recommend.

You’ll also love the modern international cuisine of the Alpenhotel restaurant or the traditional Tyrolean fare at Hotel Maiensee’s own Stuben restaurant.

Winter Activities

St Christoph and the surrounding area offers plenty of activities for non-skiers. Whether it be toboggan runs, curling, cross-country skiing, horse-drawn sleigh rides or even paragliding, there is plenty to try your hand at.

There’s also a new sport and climbing centre available where you can enjoy various indoor activities on days where the weather is a bit flat.

Spas and Fitness

The Arlberg Well, the spa and leisure centre in the middle of nearby St. Anton, is perfect for relaxing session after a day on the slopes. Cool down in their swimming pool or relax with a traditional massage treatment.
