Lech And Zurs

Lech and Zurs are a part of the Arlberg but a world apart in many ways. Stunningly beautiful, with classic chalets and five-star hotels, Zurs is on the Flexen-Pass and Lech in a valley just a couple of miles away. These stylish Austrian Alpine resorts nestle near the slopes of the Madloch, Trittkopf, and Kriegerhorn which offer exciting skiing for all abilities. Lech and Zurs have been consistently voted the best skiing area in the world for some time.

Lech consists of different districts each with their own special appeal: Oberlech, Stubenbach, Dorf, Anger, Omesberg, Tannberg, Strass, Zurs and Zug. Zug and Zurs form a large ski region with a variety of pistes which reach the hotel door. Zurs has twenty-two exclusive hotels and guest houses and is surrounded by mountains with guaranteed snow. It is popularly known as the Mecca of Alpine powder snow skiing. And while the adults are testing their limits on the slopes, children are well looked after in the “Little Zurs” nursery.

Lech is less glitzy and has a comfortably, welcoming atmosphere. Between them the resorts offer every thing you may crave for on a skiing vacation: tranquility, apres-ski and endless skiing. There is a free ski-bus running frequently between the towns.

With 84 cable cars and lifts to the three mountains, which offer over 260 km of well-tended pistes and 180 km of open slopes, there is plenty of variety for every level of skiing. Snowboarders can have a great time at the Fun Park. With 26 km of cross country tracks, 15 km of winter hiking trails, horse-drawn sleigh rides and a natural toboggan run that is floodlit in the evenings, there is plenty else happening too. Apres-ski is exciting with open-air snow bars, indoor bars and dancing after a day on the slopes.

Oberlech, a satellite resort perched above Lec, is a traffic-free zone thanks to the tunnel system. An excellent family resort, it is known as the “sun terrace of the Arlberg” and can be reached only by cable car or by skiing. Oberlech gives you access to whole new area with otstanding skiing for all levels. Oberlech offers guests excellent child care service free of cost to hotel guests at the “Kinderland Oberlech.” Everyone will discover fun and excitement in Lech and Zurs.
