Harry’s Burger-Grill, Pettneu (£) – Found in the town of Pettneu, this American-style diner is popular with seasonnaires and the budget-conscious. For only €8 you can enjoy a Harry’s Special XXL – stuffed with fillings and two burgers, served with fries – washed down with an Austrian beer, of course!
The Galzig Bistro Bar (££) – This smart bistro is found a few minutes walk from the train station, and is the perfect spot to lunch on sunny afternoons. Armed with a terraced dining area and outside bar, it also doubles as a cosy après place after lifts close. The portions are generous – we highly recommend the Galzig burger or the Pork Schnitzel.
The Museum Restaurant (£££) – If you’ve seen Chalet Girl, you’ll probably recognise the chalet on the slopes above the Galzig lift. Unlike the movie, this charming mansion holds the area’s ski museum and a rather fancy restaurant. Each dining room is originally preserved, and the food is “a fusion of Austrian-international”.
Après & Nightlife
Après in St Anton needs no introduction! Believe it or not, you can start the party at 3pm on the slopes, and carry on until the early hours in town.
Krazy Kangaruh, Galzig Piste – Bursting on to the pistes in 1965, the Krazy Kanguruh (or KKs) is credited as the Alps’ first après bar. 50 years on, it’s showing no signs of slowing down, with open-air après rocking the pistes every single day!
Mooserwirt, Galzig Piste – Just opposite KKs, you can’t miss the Mooserwirt! At precisely 3:30pm every day, DJ Gerhart begins his cheesey Europop set and kicks off the “baddest apres on the mountain”. Regardless of the weather, you’ll find people dancing on tables either on the huge terrace or indoors in the beer halle.
PostKeller, St Anton – in the centre of town, you’ll find PostKeller. Start the evening in the British-style Picadilly bar, then head next door for dancing after 9pm. The party goes until 4am with Australian DJ Andi Joseph, so make sure you’ve got the stamina to make it!
