Destination Guide: Lech
Legendary deep powder snow and royal connections, the Austrian resort of Lech has a fine pedigree. The beautifully preserved village buildings are linked by a free ski bus and the resort’s exclusivity is preserved through limiting the number of ski passes per day and imposing parking restrictions.
Lech has a distinguished history when it comes to alpine sports. This was where the very first ski lift was developed at the beginning of the 20th Century. Today its five star hotels and luxury chalets are filled with wealthy and distinguished visitors to ski in Winter and to explore the 350km of mountain hiking trails in Summer.
Above the main town sits the small, elite development of Oberlech, a cluster of luxury hotels and chalets which is reached by cable car from below. This service runs until 1am so that late night revellers can get home to their beds at night.
Lech has an impressive array of local pistes, linking it to the lower village of Zurs, and is known for its superb off-piste powder, and its challenging White Ring circuit. A new gondola lift with heated seats now links the Lech and Zurs ski area with Warth-Schroken in the next valley, and Lech also has an excellent fun park and good facilities for beginners. You can also take the bus over to St Anton for more great pistes in the Arlberg ski area.
Best places to eat and drink in Lech
The locals take their food and drink very seriously and Lech has more than its fair share of world-class restaurants competing for your attention. If you fancy something a little different and truly memorable, try the Asian Fusion cuisine of Fux. This chic, glass-fronted restaurant has a main dining room plus a steakhouse and cocktail bar. Stop in at the Burg Vital Hotel in Oberlech for an unforgettable meal. Here, the Head chef creates wonderful dishes infused with the flavours of freshly-picked alpine herbs.
Best time to visit Lech
The Arlberg ski area is open from early December to the end of April, and many of the lifts are open again from late June to early October for walkers and cyclists.
