The Village

If you want to stay in a picturesque traditional Austrian village Lech is the destination of choice. From classic Alpine chalets to exceptional snowfall, Lech is ideal for an active and relaxing holiday whether on piste or off.

Lech strikes the perfect balance of sublime Austrian skiing, good restaurants and relaxation, making it the perfect family holiday choice.

The Skiing

Frequented by die-hard beginners and royalty alike, Lech has plenty to offer any level of skier.

The resort has a large connected ski web offering a total ski area of more than 280km and the impressive snow record continues to bring people back for more. Part of the vast Arlberg ski region, Lech and the nearby Zurs are linked by gondola to the smaller resorts Warth and Shrocken that are known to be the snowiest destinations in the Alps, creating a combined ski area that is 50% bigger than the existing Lech-Zurs terrain.

Restaurants and Bars

Gastronomy is a large part of Lech's culture and there is a vast selection of cuisines with restaurants varying from fondue to seafood, Austrian to Asian cuisine.

A must when skiing in Lech is a visit to one of the famous local fondue restaurants, the Alpele is minutes away from the village. For some traditional mountain fare you visit the Rud-Alpe, a rustic welcoming restaurant traditional in style where you can savour powerful tastes of local Austrian dishes. Lech is also home to Fux Steakhouse, which boasts the second largest wine cellar in Austria.

Winter Activities

Lech is an alpine playground for the whole family to enjoy both on and off the slopes.

Don't miss the exhilarating toboggan run from the hamlet of Oberlech served by its own lift, or the horse drawn sleigh adventure to Zug. There are also ice skating facilities and even a selection of indoor activities such as football, climbing, tennis and squash.
