Scout tips

  • The wellness area is sufficient in its features but not very up-to-date compared to the other wellness area of other hotels
  • A 20 minute bus ride to St. Anton. Public shuttle leaves every ten minutes
  • The hotel provides shuttle to the train station for a surcharge and free shuttle to Zurs in the morning and afternoon
  • Request for a corner room particularly the De Luxe Double Room "Riffler"
  • Dine around package for an additional fee, which allows guests to dine in any of the four restaurants of the hotel


A rich history that dates back to 1386, the Alberg Hospiz is one of the oldest hotels in the Arlberg region. Located high above St Anton in the little hamlet of St Christoph, it was established by Heinrich who envisioned it as a place of refuge for people who were moving their animals across the mountains. Through the centuries, the hotel has undergone a lot of changes and in 1955, it was purchased by the Werner family and extensively renovated but soon after the hotel a fire burned downed the hotel and church. It was in Christmas 1959 that the hotel re-opened its doors. Today, the hotel is still owned by the Werner family and is managed by Florian Werner and his wife Ursula. It still has that wonderful old world charm with touches of modern amenities, and a very Tyrolean ambiance.

The Arlberg Hospiz has 87 fully appointed rooms ranging from single rooms to suites. The rooms are spacious and elegantly furnished with some splashes of colors. Some of the rooms have been more recently updated than others, but most have a traditional Tyrolean style. (Some of the bathrooms need a little updating, but they are large). One of the best rooms in the hotel is the corner room De Luxe Double Room Riffler which has plenty of space for two people. There’s also a variety of options in nearby chalets and apartments if you are a larger group.

The Arlberg Hospiz Hotel has four restaurants and you can opt for the “dine around” package which will cost you an additional charge allowing you to dine in any of them. Each of its restaurant delivers what it promises, heavenly tasting food prepared by its team of culinary experts. The hotel has two wine cellars namely the Big Bottle Wine cellar where you will find the world’s largest collection of wines, and the Brotherhood’s Wine Cellar, one of the oldest wine cellars in Europe.

Little guests are very much welcomed in Alberg Hospiz. It has a children’s club called ‘Little Hospiz' where they are given special treatment. It is managed by a child care team which ensures that the kids are pretty busy the whole day so parents can enjoy their skiing adventure or dining without having to worry about their kid’s well-being. And for a flat rate, kids can have their own special menu for lunch and dinner. They’ll also happily arrange ski lessons with local guides. Just a word of warning though, they might love Arlberg Hospiz so much that they wouldn’t want to leave!

The Arlberg Hospiz sports and spa features an indoor pool, Finish sauna, a bio sauna and a steam bath. There’s also a large gym.

Arlberg Hospiz is not just a hotel; it is an art center too. It promotes the appreciation of arts through its own hotel gallery, and during the winter season, contemporary artists stay and work at the hotel. This provides the opportunity for you to interact with the artists and perhaps commission them to do a painting exclusively for you.

The hotel is located right across the street from the St Christoph ski lifts, which connect with the greater St Anton ski resort. If you’re planning on spending a lot of time in St Anton village, this is probably not the best location for you. But if you’re a family that likes convenient access to slopes, a peaceful location and warm Tyrolean hospitality then it’s perfect.

Who should stay here

The Arlberg Hospiz hotel is great for families with young kids for its excellent facilities and amenities catering to the needs of children, plus its convenient location to the slopes.
