Lech and its higher neighbor Zürs are the most glamorous and expensive resorts in Austria.
The famous holiday destinations of Lech and Zürs am Arlberg have been delighting winter visitors from all over the world with the best skiing and snowboarding, and a first class infrastructure for tourists.
Alongside its exceptional altitude, it’s the warm hospitality and the mixture of traditional and modern that make up the very special charm of Lech Zürs am Arlberg.
Their shared slopes could fairly easily be linked with those of St.Anton – but then their rich and royal visitors would be forced to mingle with hoi polloi from their equally famous but less exclusive neighbor.
Lech is for those who don’t mind fur coats, do like well groomed, snow sure, cruising slopes, and are content to enjoy a winter holiday in pampered comfort and style in a traditional Alpine village.
There are challenging slopes available (mainly off-slope) and the tougher slopes of St.Anton are only a short bus- or car-ride away.But it is the part-timer, who enjoys the apres and the strolling as much as the winter sports who will get the most out of the resort. It helps to have a deep pocket.
