St. Johann has long been an important trading centre in the area, thanks to the presence of the local mining industry - an industry going back to the Celts, who mined there in the 4th century BCE. By the 18th century, the town was rich and famed for the nearby silver mines, that funded the construction of the gorgeous Baroque churches and townhouses around St. Johann. At the heart of the town stands the Huber Brau, a 30m high tower attached to a brewery which is a cherished local institution.

As for skiing, holidaymakers are spoilt for choice. The town has access to 346 acres of pistes, including 23 pistes and well over 275km of cross-country trails. Conveniently, there is something for everyone in St. Johann: beginners will enjoy the gentler slopes, while the more experienced skiers will feel challenged and snowboarders will have a blast in the terrain park and half-pipe.
