Lech ski resort

 

Set in one of the most fashionable winter sports areas of Austria, this resort has one of the best snow records in Europe and attracts thousands of well-heeled tourists every year. However, there are plenty of affordable places to stay and the resort is home to a number of inexpensive late night venues, so it is quite possible to holiday here without spending a fortune. Part of the Arlberg Ski Circus, which consists of three resorts, over 130 individual runs and more than 80 lifts, both intermediate and advanced skiers will find plenty of challenging runs in the immediate vicinity.

 

Getting started

 

The resort is ideal for beginners too, with many nursery slopes in close proximity to the village that can be used until you have gained some experience. Whether you are looking for a hotel package, private catered accommodation or luxury ski chalets Lech and nearby Zurs have plenty to offer and we will be pleased to help you find something suitable. Whilst the main reason to visit this area is the fantastic winter sports facilities that it has to offer, the lively après-ski scene and variety of interesting shops to be found in the resort are also a big attraction.

 

A wide choice of activities

 

For those who like to enjoy their breaks to the full and try as many activities as they can, this is an ideal destination. The local ice rink offers visitors the opportunity to brush up on their skating skills or try the fascinating sport of curling and there are indoor tennis and squash courts in the local leisure centre. If this is not enough to satisfy you, there is also a driving range and a climbing wall. Anybody who enjoys winter holidays in general and skiing breaks in particular, is sure to appreciate our excellent Lech accommodation and our prices.
