Through to 3rd October 2022: late summer highlights in the Tyrolean mountain village
Summer guests can experience the striking Alpine scenery of the Austrian “global village” of St. Anton am Arlberg for longer than usual this year. All services covered by the St. Anton Summer Card, including the weekly programme and cable cars, can be used until 3rd October 2022. The late Tyrolean summer reveals its exciting side not only when it comes to hiking and (e-)biking. In the valley, all kinds of scenic highlights such as the 26th St. Anton Film Festival, the international Mountain Yoga Festival and Line Dance Festival with another world record attempt attract guests and locals alike. As the first autumn leaves turn to gold, ornately decorated cattle will be returning to the valley from their summer alpine pastures. This is traditionally celebrated on 17th September with the “Almabtrieb” cattle drive and farmer’s festival – a great experience for the whole family. www.stantonamarlberg.com

Balance meets Diversity:
Mountain Yoga Festival from 1st to 4th September 2022
Roll out your mat, take a deep breath, and soak up the the energy: the international yoga scene is coming together for a sixth time in St. Anton am Arlberg. The Tyrolean mountain village is transformed into a gigantic- open-air studio, as eminent yogis such as Sandra Wijkman Donovan, Alexandra Sagorz-Zimmerl or Manel Rodrigues share their in-depth knowledge about the crow, warrior and co. poses. The four-day programme – entitled “Diversity” this year – includes sessions in diverse styles for every level of ability, whereby participants can decide for themselves how intensive or relaxed they want their stay to be. Beyond the yoga mat, yogis can look forward to guided hikes, workshops, lectures, gentle music and healthy cuisine with regional ingredients.
Country Feeling with World Record Attempt:
Line Dance Festival from 9th to 11th September 2022
St. Anton am Arlberg will be transformed into a giant dance floor for the fifth time in September 2022. Participants from near and far will demonstrate their sense of rhythm and celebrate together what line dancing is all about: pure joie de vivre. The successful world record attempt in 2010 was quickly followed by a veritable “line dance boom” – a new record will hopefully be set in 2022, during which 20 fully choreographed dances must be accomplished in just one hour.
