Sankt Anton am Arlberg
SOURCE: Wikipedia Commons photo.
Sankt Anton am Arlberg, a prominent ski resort in Tyrol, is one of the world's most famous international winter sports and summer resorts.
Tourism on the Arlberg dates back to the 19th century. But it was not until the advent of Alpine skiing, pioneered to a large extent by men from the Arlberg, that the region acquired the outstanding reputation it still enjoys today as a winter sports centre.
In the decades that followed a succession of great skiers made the Arlberg a household word for the best in skiing.
The museum in the Arlberg-Kandahar-House gives visitors and historians an overview of the history of skiing in the Arlberg area, regarded as the “Cradle of Alpine skiing”.
