Get on Your Bike and Ride the Mountains
In St. Anton, mountain biking is not just a way to get around: It’s a way of life. Mountain bikers from all over the world come to the Arlberg Mountains to tackle this fat-tire paradise and you can bet the area is home to an abundance of spectacular mountain bike trails. A wide variety of guided tours are available, or you can just cruise the mountain on your own. Favourite local tours include Tritsch Alpe, Putzenalpe, Rodelalm and Konstanzer Hut, to name but a few. And did you know that St. Anton is lying on the legendary Transalp Route, crossing the Alps from Germany to Italy? We are passionate mountain bikers ourselves and that’s why we can suggest a number of routes to capture the very best of the area.
And we will help you get the gear and equipment to get the most out of your adventure: Ask us about our complimentary mountain bikes and our complimentary wash service and safe indoor storage for your own bike.
