St. Christoph am Arlberg
Spring. Summer. Autumn. Winter.
At around 1,800 meters, St. Christoph am Arlberg is among the highest Alpine ski resorts. For such a small village, it has a long history. The shepherd, Heinrich Findelkind , built a hospice for weather-stricken hikers here in the 14th century, laying the foundation for the charitable brotherhood of St. Christoph , which now has almost 20,000 members worldwide. The hospice, which today is a well-known hotel, was the founding place of the Ski-Club Arlberg in 1901. And the ultra-modern and sensuous arlberg1800 Contemporary Art and Concert Hall offers culture with attitude at an unparalleled altitude.
Relaxed mountain summer
In summer, St. Christoph is the starting point for various hiking routes, such as the Berggeistweg , Jakobsweg, or the Adlerweg. Those seeking relaxation enjoy the peace and quiet of the Maiensee, or hike up to Galzig, or via Senn's WunderWanderWeg down to St. Anton am Arlberg.
The idyllic village of St. Christoph am Arlberg is not only characterized by abundant snow, it also plays an important role in the history of Austrian skiing. This is where the Ski Austria Academy is located as a recognized training centre for state ski instructor and trainer training.
It also enjoys great popularity with skiers looking for a warming drink or a spot of lunch on its many hotel and hut sun terraces. And at 1,800 meters, it has one of the highest cross-country ski trails in Austria and a sunny winter hiking trail.
