The food is of a high standard, and is a mix of international and Tyrolean, with much produce sourced from local farmers. The 1901 Lounge & Restaurant has a more modern Alpine design. Named after the founding of the world's oldest ski club - the Skiclub Arlberg - in St Christoph itself, it's decorated with cowhides and boasts a sunny terrace - perfect for lunch or dinner.
