Lech is a superb medieval village, set amidst the Austrian Alps in the vast and beautiful Arlberg region. Set at a high altitude of 1432m base village and 2450m top station, Lech offers a winter season that runs from early December until the end of April. The skiing and boarding are truly amazing, offering a varied terrain to meet the needs of beginners and experts alike. The lift system is vast and many and interconnected with Zurs. A new cable car called the Auenfeldjet opened at the end of 2013. It is two kilometres long and creates a link between Lech, Zurs and Warth-Schrocken, making it the largest ski area in Voralberg. The village consists of quaint traditional Tyrolean chalets, hotels and pensions and has a warm and friendly atmosphere. Lech is ideal for families, offering a great Kinderclub for children from three to five years old. This is great way of introducing the little ones to the joy of skiing. On top of the great skiing, Lech offers a wide variety of other winter activities, for example 27 kilometres of cross-country trails, 33 kilometres of winter hiking trails, an illuminated natural sledge run and a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride. Getting to Lech is easy and convenient as there are good train connections to the Arlberg area from Austria, Germany and Switzerland as well as from the Zurich and Innsbruck airports. From the Arlberg railway stations it’s only a 30 minute transfer to the lovely village centre of Lech. Lech is a member of the ‘Best of the Alps’, a twelve resort partnership epitomising what a true classic resort should offer.
