The development of the community name is also interesting. St. Anton carries the fifth name within approximately 750 years. At the end of the 13th century the village was called “Vallis Taberna”, then until about 1805 “Stanzertal”, from about 1805 until only 1811 “St. Jakob”, consequently from 1811 until 1927 “Nasserein” until finally in 1927 the village was renamed St. Anton am Arlberg.
The village on the Arlberg generates its income mainly from winter tourism and is considered one of the most important destinations for our passengers arriving from Innsbruck Airport.
