Resort guide to Stuben - Austria

Traditional, quiet and pretty Tirolean ski village linking to the mighty St Anton ski area

Stuben resort guide - a general overview

Stuben is linked by lifts and pistes to St Anton, and is a short bus journey to Zurs and Lech. Being right in the middle of the Arlberg ski circuit (260km of piste) ski holidays in Stuben are recommended for keen skiers. Ski holidays in Stuben offer a traditional atmosphere where personal service and quiet friendliness are the order of the day. Here modern developments are kept to a minimum, so that you will find a handful of traditional hotels, a school, three bars, a couple of banks and a few little shops. The old church and traditional buildings, usually snow covered, make Stuben a really charming Alpine Village.

Stuben Resort Restaurants

Stuben, despite being relatively small in comparison to its famous neighbour St. Anton, has a very decent range of eateries to suit everybody's taste. The Hotel Post , specialises in regional cuisine but also has some mouth watering unique signature dishes, and, for those who have had enough Austrian feasts for one week will be spoilt for choice with the international menu. The Hotel Post is also a popular apres ski hangout and has a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The Hotel Hubertushof is a 4 star hotel with a 4 star menu to match. With a great mix of modern and traditional dishes, you can enjoy your meal here with panoramic views looking out across the beautiful ski domain of Stuben.

Stuben Mountain Restaurants

On the mountain just above Stuben there are only two mountain restaurants, the Albona (middle station) and the Albonagrat (2400m). If you are only skiing this area it is recommended to ski back to Stuben village itself where there is a lot more choice of places to lunch. If you decide to venture further beyond Stuben and ski further across the Alberg ski area you can expect to find many more traditional mountain restaurants. The Sennhutte in St Anton gets particularly great reviews.

Stuben Apres Ski

The apres ski in Stuben focuses on good food and drink rather than the typical Austrian raucous apres scene. Everywhere in Stuben seems a bit more refined and relaxed. If you are a big party fan then don't head to Stuben, it's a lot more suited to families and couples, instead head to St Anton or other bigger Austrian resorts. The most apres ski in Stuben you will find is a few quiet drinks slope side after a hard days skiing before heading back to your Chalet for dinner. The town, however, still boasts a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere, brimming with typical good Austrian hospitality.
