In the spirit of Keystone and Gordon conferences as well as the MBCF (Medicinal and Bioorganic Chemistry Foundation) conference in Steamboat Springs, the format of this meeting provides ample opportunity for attendees to informally interact and have outdoor activities.
Booking of Skipasses will be available upon registration.
Renting of material:
For those needing to rent material, the organisers are negociating special rates with local companies.
Gallery (3 km): Follow the “Rosannaweg“ path, then head slightly uphill to the ventilation shaft of the road tunnel. Fantastic views over the St. Jakob area can be enjoyed from this vantage point. Various winter walking trails can be joined from here.
Verwall (10-km round trip): Take the old “Arlberg straße” street to the Hotel Mooserkreuz, heading steeply uphill (we recommend using the ski bus to the end of the old Arlbergstraße). From there, on almost flat terrain you have the possibility of walking to the Rasthaus Ferwall (roadhouse) or enjoying the panoramic walking trail around Verwall lake. This walk may easily become a highlight of your winter holiday
Around St. Anton am Arlberg (2.5 km): A very easy loop that presents St. Anton am Arlberg from various perspectives.
Rodelhütte – tobogganing hut (7-km round trip): Walk along the “Kunstmeile“ to the cable car station in Nasserein, then head steeply uphill to the end of the “Nassereinerstraße” street. From here it is a quite strenuous uphill ascent (over 200 metres in elevation) to the toboggan run. Fantastic views over St. Anton am Arlberg and the “Stanzertal“ valley can be enjoyed from here.
Jakobusweg (7-km round trip): The constant up and down hill sections are what makes this walk interesting. Proceed on the sunny side of the “Stanzertal” valley, parts of which follow along the famous St. James‘ pilgrimage trail. Connecting with other trails is possible. Narrow trail – Sturdy shoes required.
Ganderau (3 km): Plain walking path around St. Jakob.
Pettneu via Vadiesen (12-km round trip): Follow the
St. Christoph (2.5 km): Ridgeway at 1800 m. The Alpine trail begins at the “Arlberg Thaja“ at the elevation of the Arlberg pass. It runs parallel to the cross country trail.

Kunstmeile (1 km): From the ARLBERG-well.com centre to the cable car station in Nasserein.
“Planie” loop (2.5 km): Walk from the Tourist Office through the park, passing the ARLBERG-well.com centre and along the

Museum and Galleries
Art Room in Pettneu
Opening hours: every Thursday and Saturday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Sunday from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
The Art Room’s Slogan: “Culture is what we share”. These words by Peter Sellar are an apt description for the work of the Art Room Assoc. in Pettneu. Food for thought: walk through the internal rooms over the ramp and take in the architectural design of the walls, the asphalt flooring; the passageways with floor spots under the large table with light slots on the side; and both garden areas with the giant table. Visit the Art Room and discover how people in Pettneu and Tyrol lived and worked in the past.
