Bau des Arlberg Tunnels

Bau / Construction Arlberg Tunnel

With the construction of Arlberg-Train during the years 1880 – 1884 the train station that was established was named “St. Anton am Arlberg” though the community name was still Nasserein. In 1927, the Municipality changed the villages name into St. Anton am Arlberg.

The Arlberg-Train brought tourists and the Post Hotel was built

Carl Schuler built the first hotel in St. Anton, which was opened in 1897 under the name of Post Hotel. The hotel offered about 110 beds and the luxury of central heating, electric light and a tennis court and a bowling alley.

The Post Hotel soon was followed by other hotels with a yearly growing number of guest beds. In  1910 St. Anton already decreed over 328 beds, at the beginning of World War II, the number of beds had been increased to over a thousand. Unfortunately tourism declined significantly during the war, but skiers came back afterwards.

Development of Alpine Skiing

1907: Alpine skiing begins at the Arlberg with the Arlberg Ski Club

 

In  January 1901 the Arlberg Ski Club was founded at the Hospiz Hotel in St. Christoph.  Six years later the famous ski instructor Hannes Schneider took notice of the booming ski tourism within the region and decided to settle down in St. Anton. He brought along a new skiing technique, called it his “Arlberg technique“ and revolutionized the way of skiing in a significant way.

International press got interested in the funny new kind of sport where people slip down snow covered mountain slopes with wooden planks tied on their feet. Numerous headlines started to call St. Anton, the cradle of Alpine skiing.

Further cable cars were built in 1965 to 1975, including the redevelopment of the Moos valley with Rendlbahn.
