Arco Ski Lodge is a traditional, Bavarian Bier Hall serving big, hearty German meals of superb quality plus a large range of traditional Bavarian beverages, such as their award-winning Arcobräu beers – available in giant 1-litre Stein as well as 300ml and 500ml glasses.

A range of spirits and an abundance of Schnapps are available as well as traditional Isaperle soft drinks for the kids.

See live entertainment from popular DJs and bands or play darts against a spectacular backdrop of Victoria’s highest, most picturesque alpine resort, Mount Hotham, and you’ve got the perfect place to wind down after a day of skiing and boarding.

Arco offers daily Après-ski party with delicious warming Gluhwein, the best schnapps selection on the mountain sourced from Austria, Bavaria and Germany.

Enjoy our mouth-watering menu with traditional dishes ranging from soups and giant Brezels to our famous pork knuckle, freshly made schnitzels and huge sharing platters.
