Resort guide to St Christoph - Austria

Small traditional ski village set at the high mountain pass between St Anton and Stuben

St Christoph resort guide - a general overview

St Christoph is a small and quiet village located 10 minutes drive from St Anton - the last refuge before the Arlberg Pass that leads to Stuben and Lech / Zurs beyond. St Christoph is a charming village, quite remote and very small but certainly with a magic all of its own. The famous Hospiz Hotel is a world class 5 star and the Hospiz Alm piste-side restaurant (famous for the slide down to the loos) is one of the best mountain eating places in the Alps. Guests staying in one of the hotels or chalets in St Christoph have immediate access into the massive Arlberg ski area and in fact are well placed to explore over to St Anton or the other way down to Stuben and the excellent North facing slopes of the Albona Mountain.

This is certainly worth a visit before heading back to your ski chalet or hotel! St Christoph does have a number of quality eateries, although most are located in the four and five star hotels within the resort.

At lunchtime, find yourself a spot on the sun terrace and indulge with a glass of bubbly and a sample of some Austrian classics including Wiener schnitzel, pork spare ribs (a house speciality) or Kaiserschmarrn (a light, caramelised pancake).

St Christoph Apres Ski

St Christoph is not a particularly big apres hot spot - therefore you are best sticking with either St Anton or Lech if you are looking for more a pre-dusk party scene!
