Stuben is linked with St. Anton by lifts and pistes and the small, unspoiled village is a quaint place to spend a winter holiday. The historic main street and the roofs that are often metres deep in snow give Stuben a dramatic look and atmosphere. The walking paths that cut through the massive snowpack between the centre, the church and ski lift are wonderful retreats.
Much like the village itself, the hotels there are traditional and steeped in character. For a unique, small resort that exudes style and charm, Stuben is a true Alpine retreat.
