EasyJet fly into Zurich which is quite a good airport for getting to St.Anton. Whilst further away than Friedrichshafen, Memmingen & Innsbruck it does have the advantage of a railway terminal and the connection to St.Anton is good. You could also hire a car and take the two and a half hour drive to St.Anton. Taxi transfer is also a good option when using Zurich but do not take a Swiss taxi from the airport as they are way too expensive.
Direct Taxi Transfer at great price for INDIVIDUALS or GROUPS!
If you are looking for a direct taxi transfer from / to the airport then for this season we have a new transfer service to St.Anton which will take you straight from the airport to your hotel / apartment in St.Anton. For full details click here.
Trains run very frequently to the main Zurich station where you will be able to catch a train direct to St.Anton. However make sure that you check out your arrival times against the train departures so you don’t end up spending the evening in Zurich – the last train leaves at about 9pm! Here is the train journey planner. Another tip is to sit in the dining car on the train where there are good food, drinks and waiter service. It is a very pleasant way to get to St.Anton, the Swiss / Austrian trains are so much better than you will be used to in the UK.
If you are thinking of car hire from Zurich we suggest that you check out Rhino Car Hire as they offer very good prices. Directions by car to St.Anton can be found below. Also remember when booking your car hire to ask for WINTER TYRES and CHECK they are fitted when you collect the car. Secondly when you cross the border into Austria you must buy a tax disc – this is not expensive but the fine for not having it is!! You can buy a 10 day one for under 10 Euro.
Directions via road:
Leave the airport and take the A51 south following signs towards the A1. Turn onto the A1 towards Winterthur and St.Gallen. Stay on the A1 past Winterthur and St.Gallen and then when you pass St.Margrethen follow the signs to the A13 – Now you are on the A13 you need to exit at Junction 3 signposted towards Hohenems. This will then bring you across the border into Austria. Follow signs to the A14 and then get onto the A14 towards Innsbruck. Once on the A14 you continue for about another 40km until the road becomes single carriageway. Continue for about a further 15km and then the road once again becomes duel carriageway. Continue through a couple of short tunnels until you go through a very long tunnel of several kilometres – this is the Arlberg tunnel – and at the end of it you exit to St.Anton. There is a small toll for using this tunnel. You can avoid the tunnel by taking the Arlberg pass to St.Anton as long as there is not snow on it.
