"Elegant Lech has some great restaurants. Huss 8 is a wonderful old wooden chalet where you can enjoy local specialties Käse Spatzle and Tiroler Gröstl washed down with a schnapps or two."

Lech Ski Holidays

Located in the massive Arlberg ski region, Lech is one of the best ski areas in Austria!

Lech is a pretty, traditional Tyrolean town with numerous award winning restaurants, trendy bars, and a reputation for attracting more royalty and celebrity clientele than any other resort in Austria.

Lech has a linked ski area with Zurs which is connected by state-of–the-art ski lifts to get you about quickly and easily. It offers a great variety of terrain that will suit everyone with easy nursery slopes in Oberlech just to the right of the village, to intermediate and expert terrain dotted all around the ski area.

The entire Arlberg ski area is now fully linked thanks to the Flexenbahn lift built for Winter 2016/17, allowing easy access to the slopes of neighbouring St Anton which is widely considered a paradise for the more advanced skier or boarder.

On most people's Lech ski bucket list is the legendary 22km 'White Ring' ski circuit between Lech and Zurs - largely involving blue and red runs, it is accessible to most skiers who classify themselves as intermediate or above. With heli-skiing available, and the new link to St Anton, one visit to Lech is just never going to be enough!
