Club: SCR Altach | Opening: 1990 | Capacity: 8,500
History and description
The CASHPOINT Arena, also known Sportanlage Schnabelholz, opened on 1 June 1990.
The stadium underwent various changes in 2005 when Altach promoted to the Erste Liga, which included a new roof on the east stand, an enlargement of the north terrace, and the addition of hospitality facilities.
In 2007, the stadium was renamed CASHPOINT Arena following a sponsorship naming rights deal.
Further improvements to the stadium were made in 2016 following Altach’s promotion to the Bundesliga.
How to get to the CASHPOINT Arena
The CASHPOINT Arena is located on the western edge of the village of Altach. Altach, in turn, is part of a string of villages on the Swiss border south of the city of Bregenz, which lies on Lake Constance (Bodensee).
The stadium lies about 20 kilometres south of Bregenz. It lies right next to the A18 motorway, which runs south from Bregenz and continues east towards Innsbruck, and is thus easily reached by car. Take exit 27 towards Altach.
If using public transport, take a train to Altach station, from where it’s a 30-minute walk to the stadium. Alternatively, take bus 22 and get off at stop Altach Stadion. The journey takes 15 minutes, though buses only run once an hour
Direct trains connect Altach with Bregenz in the north (30-minute journey) and Feldkirch further south (17-minute journey). From Feldkirch trains can be caught to destinations further away such as Innsbruck. Trains run at least every half an hour.
Address: Schnabelholz 1, 6844 Altach
Eat, drink, and sleep near the CASHPOINT Arena
The CASHPOINT Arena is located on the edge of the quiet town of Altach, which has a little over 6,000 inhabitants. It borders farmlands on one side and a motorway on the other with quiet residential neighbourhood in the surroundings.
There are a few places to get something to eat and drink in and around Altach, but it’s a quiet village of little interest and most will spend their time in Bregenz or around Lake Constance and travel in for the match.
There are few options to stay in Altach or near the CASHPOINT Arena, but Hotel am Garnmarkt in nearby Gotzis would be just at walking distance (app. 30 minutes). There are furthermore a few options in nearby Hohenems from where it’s a short bus or train ride to Altach.
However, most will prefer to stay on Lake Constance in Bregenz or elsewhere on the lake. An alternative is the picturesque town of Feldkirch in the mountains near Liechtenstein, or find yourself a quiet little hotel up some mountain side.
