About Lech am Arlberg
As one of Austria's largest ski resorts Lech offers a high quality skiing experience. Queuing might happen during ski school starting hours but normally you don't queue for more than 5 minutes anywhere. There are a number of high level ski schools available for all types of skiers. The Arlberg is the birth place of the ski schools. There is ski terrain for everybody, from the beginner to the alpine tourer. Best skiing though is in Zurs, (lift linked, but a sleepy place to stay).
Lech-Zurs hosts the world's longest ski race known as "Der Weisse Ringe" (The White Ring) crossing over 22 km of pistes. Any well acquainted skier can try the run out for themselves. Though it may be started in any of the three towns (Lech, Zurs or Zug), most start in Lech at the Rufikopfbahn which connects over to Zurs. The run is very popular and well illustrated maps can be found just about anywhere.
During the Summer months the area is a very popular hiking and wellness destination. It is not unusual to stumble across fossils and other interesting geological finds whilst hiking. The "Sea of Stone" hike in particular has plenty of fossil finds as you are literally walking over an ancient coral reef. For those more interested in a trekking-type vacation, one may hike atop the peaks from hut to hut (with cheap dorm-style accommodation and delicious traditional Vorarlberger/Tyrolean dishes). Rock climbing, canyoning, repelling, mountain biking, etc are all available. In Lech, these activities are all available to children during their day camps.
Many of the hotels offer "half-board" accommodation and will provide breakfast and the evening meal. This can be good value if you don't mind returning to the hotel to eat.
Over 100 restaurants and inns in Lech and Zürs offer everything from international to regional and rustic cuisine. The majority of restaurants is in Lech. For gourmets Lech has 14 toque-awarded restaurants to choose from.
- The Ice Bar. A frozen (and freezing) bar not too far up the piste from Lech is worth stopping at for at least one drink of champagne or vodka.
Mink, diamonds, cartier, patek phillipe, you get it...
- Stroltz department store, Dorf 116 & Zürs 205. The "Harrods of Lech" deserves a visit during your stay.
