Best Mountain Restaurants in St Anton
Arguably St. Anton’s most sophisticated mountain restaurant, the Verwallstube is an award-winning gastronomic restaurant located at 2,085m above sea level. Enjoy lunch on the sunny terrace every day from December to April or book a romantic candlelit dinner on Thursday evenings, when the Galzig gondola runs especially to take diners up to the restaurant. Favourite dishes include rich truffle pasta, locally sourced game and an excellent bouillabaisse. Reservation strongly recommended.
For traditional Tyrolean fare try Alber’s Rodel-Alm, a cosy mountain hut at the foot of the toboggan run where mouth-watering local specialities are served in a great ambience. Try the goulash, dumpling soup and Wiener schnitzel for a hearty lunch on the sunny terrace.
Situated at 2,288m above sea level in the middle of the Arlberg ski area, the Ulmer Hütte was originally built as an Alpine Club hut in 1903, and today offers all the cosy comforts of a mountain inn, located directly on the slopes. Open summer and winter, with a sunny terrace and cosy interior, the hut offers simple, traditional food in a stunning setting, and also provides accommodation for up to 46 people if you wish to spend a night on the mountain.

Best Après-Ski in St Anton
One of the most well-known bars in Europe, the infamous MooserWirt opened its doors for the first time in 1989 and has been the best place to party ever since. Located on the blue Galzig piste, you’ll find table-top dancing and great music provided by legendary DJ Gerhard, with beer and Jagermeister the drinks of choice. Open daily from 11am for food and from 3.30pm for après during the season.
Also situated on the blue Galzig piste is the Krazy Kanguruh, one of the oldest bars in St. Anton, dating back to 1965. Nowadays it is still the place to be for amazing après-ski parties right on the piste, as the terrace of the bar is transformed into the largest open-air dance floor in the area.
Continue the theme of piste-side drinking and entertainment and head to the nearby super-fun après bar of Taps, where you’ll find a lovely sun terrace and a happy hour. Enjoy a dish of their legendary chilli beef nachos after a hard session of skiing.
