St Anton am Arlberg.
St Anton is an Alpine village in Austria. It is situated in a western zone of Austria called Tyrol. St Anton is also called the ”ski paradise”. That is pretty much what it is. If you don’t like skiing, you should not go to St Anton. Here me and my family, which contains of my dad, my mom and my big brother Victor, moved for 6 months. And yes, we do like skiing. Well, I didn't when we first got there. Just the thought of moving there for 6 moths, leaving my friends and dog behind me in Sweden made me nauseous. But this cute and charming ski resort changed my mind completely.
Traveling to St Anton could be done in several ways. You could go by airplane from Stockholm to Munich or Zurich and then rent a car or take the train to St Anton am Arlberg. It is possible to drive all the way too but it takes a wile and is really exhausting. So I would definitely recommend the airplane way...
The skiing, as I said before, is the main occasion of visiting St Anton. Therefore it is a very high pace in the piste and because of that it may not be the best place for beginners on skis. However there is a lot of other things to do in St Anton. They have a wonderful local swimming pool area with a sauna world. Here I spent a lot of time. It is really nice to stretch out your legs and use some other muscles than the ones used when skiing. The shopping is not that bad either, even I like it and I do not like ”just what ever” my dad always says.
The restaurants in the area is good. Mainly austrian dishes like Wiener Schnitzel and Apfelstrudel but also a fine selection of international dishes. A really cute and charming museum in the piste which serves delicious food. This is a "must go place" when visiting St Anton!
The wether is... a bit unpredictable. Sometimes sunny, which is a lovely ski wether. But unfortunately that do not happen everyday. It is for the most time cloudy and snowing. The temperature is low but it doesn't feel that cold. Compered to Sweden the wether isn’t as raw in St Anton as in our latitudes.
I sincerely recommend this place! Mostly for the skiing but also for the surroundings. The atmosphere in this village is delightful and I can assure you that you will feel the same tie to this village as I do!
