Arlberg is a mountain range between Vorarlberg and Tyrol in Austria. The highest peak is the “Valluga” at 2,811 metres. The Arlberg region is not only the birthplace of modern Alpine skiing, but also a most popular playground for Europe’s Royal families. Some of the most notable ski resorts are Lech, Zuers and St. Anton. It is the combination of skiing pleasure, traditional après ski and the highest culinary pleasures what makes a holiday in the Arlberg region a special, unforgettable experience.
The historic Tirolean town of Kitzbühel has two claims to fame which combine to make it a major attraction for skiers and non-skiers worldwide. One is the stunningly picturesque town itself; the other is the greatest World Cup downhill ski race in the world. 165 km of piste are pitched at the beginner-intermediate but the off-piste and bump skiing is also pretty good. Off the piste, Kitzbühel is attractive and large enough to provide plenty of interesting diversions for non-skiers. A good choice of hotels, bars and restaurants makes for a great apres-ski environment at Kitzbühel.
The eleven villages of the 39 km-long Alpine valley Montafon distinguish themselves with comprehensive recreational and sporty options. No matter which village you choose as a base, you can easily travel from one to another and to each of the valley lift stations by free ski bus. In the winter, the Montafon transforms into a true winter sports region with options for skiing & snowboarding, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ice skating and much more.
Innsbruck is the Tyrolean capital and is known for its architecture, sightseeing, cultural events, and convenient access to miles of ski runs. Innsbruck is a great place for a ski holiday, because it offers so much more than just an enjoyable skiing or boarding experience. It provides the opportunity to lap up the Austrian culture. Travelers looking for fantastic skiing and more will find Innsbruck the perfect choice.
Hiking and snowshoeing
Winter hiking and walking is a wonderful way to explore Austria and its surroundings. Away from the slopes, hiking through the snow-covered landscape in Austria, is relaxing and invigorating. Experience an unforgettable winter day in unique mountain scenery and try different hiking methods for a memorable adventure.
Tobogganing and sledding
A true winter classic during the day as well as at night. Austria has a wide range of runs for those looking for an alternative to skiing or snowboarding. Tobogganing is really an entertaining experience and not for nothing it is one of the most popular winter sports.
