Lodge Life:
Hotel Sandhof

Hotel Sandhof is steps from Lech’s iconic onion-domed church. Owners Martin and Ingrid Prodinger look after their guests like they are longtime friends. Secret: Find Martin at the end of the night and join him for some homemade schnapps.

Burg Vital Resort

I had one of the best dinners of my life at the five-star Burg Vital Resort prepared by award-winning Chef Thorsten Probost. Fine dining doesn’t begin to describe the combination of locally sourced products and herbs.  Culinary masterpiece gets closer.

Burg Vital Resort



Loved the Sole Flotation Tank! The high salt content let me float all my worries away. Definitely book one of the Indian Ayurveda treatments at the Burg Vital Spa.

Der Weisse Ring, or the White Ring, is a ski circuit that should be on your bucket list. Skiing through stunning scenery over 22 kilometers of piste and 5,439 meters of altitude, I was awed.



Strolz’s beautiful boutique is the fashion forward cool fave for fashionistas and sports aficionados alike in the Arlberg Austria. Wait for your boot fitting at the in-house bar. Shopping and schnapps. Yes.

Julia’s Must Do’s #St. Anton


The Acme of Après

The Acme of Après: Nobody does it better than St. Anton. The MooserWirt and the Krazy Kanguruh are famous (or infamous). Be prepared to stand on tables dancing with your ski boots on. Antics, drinks, and music make for an après to remember.

Epicurean Delight

The Museum Restaurant is seriously good.

History meets modern mountain food. I cannot stop thinking about the Zwiebelrostbraten, (beef with onion sauce, creamy potato purée, bacon, and beans). Decadently delish. Find it and the St. Anton Ski and Local Heritage Museum in the Historic Arlberg Kandahar House. 



Overnight in St. Anton

Location. Location. Location! Ski-in/ski-out and with the pedestrian zone on the doorstep. Ski Hotel Galzig’s ultra-modern rooms are hip with perfect perks.

Experts Only

St. Anton is one of the few places in the world to offer a winter via ferrata. Grab some touring gear and get roped in for a rock climbing adventure across craggy peaks. Untracked runs are your just reward. Exhilarating.
