There are many ways of getting to St.Anton and here I will give you as much information as I can about your choices. I would recommend flying rather than driving as it is a long way here and seems even further on the way home!

If you are also looking for somewhere to stay click here!

There are several airports that you can fly into - I would recommend Friedrichshafen, Memmingen, Innsbruck or Zurich but you can also use Basle, Salzburg, Munich & Stuttgart (German Wings) but these are further away from the resort. Also for those of you wanting to fly from Eire: Ryanair fly to Salzburg from Dublin. Air Lingus  fly to Zurich, Salzburg & Munich from Dublin, Cork, Knock & Shannon.

Here is a list of airports in the UK that you can use to get to St.Anton from:

BRISTOL - Easyjet to Salzburg.
EDINBURGH - Easyjet to Zurich & Ryanair - Memmingen.  
GATWICK - Easyjet to Zurich, Salzburg, Basle, Innsbruck & Munich. Monarch to Friedrichshafen. 
HEATHROW - Swiss Air to Zurich or Basle.

LIVERPOOL - Easyjet to Salzburg   
LUTON - Easyjet to Zurich & Salzburg.   
MANCHESTER - Swiss Air - Zurich & Monarch - Friedrichshafen.
STANSTED - Ryanair to Memmingen.

When you arrive at your chosen airport there are also several ways of reaching St.Anton. If you choose the car hire option there are a couple of things to bear in mind -
there could be a lot of snow - have you driven in heavy snow before??
In Austria they drive on the right hand side of the road -
have you driven on the continent before??


FRIEDRICHSHAFEN

The best and easiest airport for St.Anton is Friedrichshafen. Although it is in Germany, Friedrichshafen is only a ninety-minute drive from St.Anton. It has by far the easiest / quickest arrival and departure through times of any European airport I have been to.  Innsbruck is closer but you run the risk of divertions due to bad weather or high winds.

Car Hire
If you are thinking of car hire from Friedrichshafen 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. 

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.

Train

There is a train station situated at Friedrichshafen and you will be able to get to St.Anton from here but you will need to make one or two connection changes. For the rail network journey planner click here.

Directions to St.Anton via road :
Turn right as you leave the airport terminal and drive about 500m until you reach a T Junction. Turn left here and this will bring down to a roundabout where you turn right towards Friedrichshafen. As you come into Friedrichshafen itself you will go through a set of traffic lights and should then see in front / above you a flyover. Go underneath the flyover and then take a filter left. This is signposted towards Lindau and there will be a Lidl supermarket on your right. The road number is 31. You will continue towards Lindau for about 20km until you come to the main Munich / Innsbruck motorway. The number of this motorway is 96. When you reach it you have to take a left turn onto it heading towards Bregenz. This will take you to the German / Austrian border, if your car does not have an Austrian tax disc you must purchase one here, (they are not expensive - you are not in the UK now!) Once through the border stay on the motorway, you will pass through a long tunnel under Bregenz. Once through the tunnel you continue for about another 50km until the road becomes single carriageway. Continue for about a further 15km and then the road once again becomes dual 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.


Memmingen

Ryanair fly into this airport from Stansted, Manchester & Edinburgh. It is almost all motorway from Memmingen St.Anton and the transfer time should be just over 90 minutes.

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.

Train
There is a train station situated at Memmingen, my advice is find people to share a taxi with direct to the station (11 Euro), there is a bus connection but I have found it does not always make the train connection you need. You will be able to get to St.Anton from here but you will need to make several connection changes. I have made this journey a couple of times and it will take 3 - 4 hours.  I suggest you only use the train as a last resort or if you have time to kill.

Car Hire
If you are thinking of car hire from Memmingen
we suggest that you check out RHINO CAR HIRE as they offer very good prices. Also remember when booking your car hire to ask for WINTER TYRES and CHECK they are fitted when you collect the car. 



INNSBRUCK

BA & Thomson fly into Innsbruck from Gatwick. Innsbruck is the closest airport to St.Anton but maybe Gatwick is not so good for many people! It is very easy to get from Innsbruck to St.Anton, either by Train, Car or taxi. Air Berlin fly into Innsbruck from Stansted but only on Thursday & Friday. A problem that you can encounter when flying to Innsbruck is being diverted to somewhere like Munich or Salzburg if the weather is bad at Innsbruck. It is even worse if your flight home is diverted somewhere away from Innsbruck and you then have a big rush to try and make the flight. When returning to the UK from Innsbruck always check your flight and the weather early!

Stay on the A12 all of the way until you reach the exit for St.Anton, which is about a 50 minute, drive.

 


    
ZURICH 

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 but I would certainly not advise you to take a taxi unless your are Richard Branson.

Train
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! 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.

Car Hire
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 !!

Directions
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. Do not take the road for the Arlberg pass to St.Anton as this may have a lot of snow on it. When you take the car back you should fill up in Switzerland as it is much cheaper.



SALZBURG

Salzburg is another possibility for St.Anton. Whilst further away than Friedrichshafen & Innsbruck and about the same sa Zurich it does have the advantage of a good rail connection to St.Anton. Click here for the rail planner. Buses from from the airport to the Railway Station. You could also hire a car and take the two and a half hour drive to St.Anton. Ryanair fly into Salzburg from Stansted. Easyjet fly there from Bristol, Liverpool, Luton & Gatwick.
