"Favourite destination for skiing" Sankt Gallenkirch by vtveen

Sankt Gallenkirch Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 58 photos

St. Gallenkirch, situated in so called 'Montafon', is our favourite destination for skiing already for a long long time.

Not too far away (from Holland) and easy accessible over German and Austrian motorways, with just the last 20 km's over a 'normal' road through the Montafon valley.

Fantastic ski area

St. Gallenkirch has a great ski area with lots of possibilities, also in other villages not too far away.

The main area is called 'Silvretta Montafon' (the former Silvretta Nova) and has about 140 km's of ski runs of every kind of difficulty. But on the same ski pass you are allowed to ski in Gargellen, Schruns, Golm and a couple of smaller ski areas.

We never had any problem with snow and nowadays the main runs have also artificial snow machines.

Quiet village

To be honest: don't expect a wild after ski life in St. Gallenkirch, although there are some pub's and bar's. It is still a rather quiet village, where most of the visitors come to ski.

As most of the Austrian ski villages there is a lot of accommodation from luxurious hotels till simple guest houses.

There are also some typical Austrian restaurants.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:never a problem with snow; sporty

    This looks like a great region for skiing. No wonder you keep going back there so often.

      Thanks for the visit. Yes you are right it is a great place for skiing.
      But to be honest the last couple of years we are going to Oberstdorf (perhaps you know it), because it offers more activities than just skiing.

    Happy to see that the thousand beer bottles @ Muntanella are still full ;-) Great update about the local snowy pleasures. Hope to discover Silvretta Nova skiing area one (winter) day!
