A Toddler’s Summer in St Anton am Arlberg

Toddler's Summer in St Anton am ArlbergI was intending to write a guide of activities to do during a toddler’s summer in St Anton am Arlberg. But actually the great thing about summertime in the mountains is the chance to unwind. We took it as a great chance to slow down and not schedule any activities. “Isn’t that boring?” I hear you say. Or “didn’t your toddler drive you crazy?” Not at all. So here is my guide to doing nothing in the mountains…

Austria Ski Season with a Baby: St Anton Cafe Review, Sonnegg

As part of writing about my ski season in Austria with a baby, I will review cafes and restaurants in St Anton am Arlberg. Which are baby-friendly? Do they have space for a pram or buggy?

A Day in the Life of a Ski Season with Baby

You might be under the impression that ski resort seasonnaires are all eighteen year old gap year students. And, to be fair, there are quite a few of those.

Buggy Friendly Winter Walk in Lech am Arlberg, Austria

Lech am Arlberg is St Anton’s posher cousin famed for featuring in the film Bridget Jones’s Diary. It is something of a playground for the rich, so keep an eye out for famous faces! The ski areas were linked together for the first time in 2016/17 by the new Flexenbahn gondola. With my toddler in tow I went to investigate a buggy friendly winter walk in Lech.

A Day Out in Pettneu am Arlberg With a Baby (Austria)

Pettneu am Arlberg with a baby

A day out in Pettneu am Arlberg with a baby makes a nice alternative to St Anton. It may not be an obvious choice. Pettneu is a village around 6km from St Anton. It lies at the foot of the peak known as the Hohe Riffler, from whose summit you can enjoy breathtaking views all the way to the Allgäu or the Eastern Alps of Switzerland. In winter it is easily accessible on the free ski bus in around 8 minutes.

Buggy Friendly Winter Walk in St Anton am Arlberg, Austria

This my regular buggy friendly winter walk in St Anton am Arlberg. I think I did this walk pretty much every day when D was tiny while she napped in the pram. I am assuming that you have a buggy that will cope with a little hard packed snow; this is a ski resort after all. It is a circular walk of approximately 2.7km. It will take around 40 minutes at a leisurely stroll with a buggy if you are also stopping to take photos.
