Tips from lizbo on Lech am Arlberg

Lech to me is one of the best ski resorts in Austria. The center is very cozy and there is plenty of shopping (pity is that it is all quite pricey), but you can see why Lech attracts a certain clientelle. No wild apres-ski, just beautiful terraces and stylish drinking. The skiing is just great. Beautiful wide slopes and you can ski in a relaxed atmosphere..

Great atmosphere in the village and lovely slopes

In my opinion, Lech is absolutely one of the prettiest ski resort towns in Austria. The centre has a friendly atmosphere with lots of shops to browse. A shame it's so dear, but this does mean the clientele is somewhat more selective. No crazy après-ski but some nice outdoor terraces for sitting and having a drink. The ski area is great, nice wide runs for carving.

We wouldn't go anywhere else!

Every year we visit Lech and we've never been disappointed. Antonius hotel is good value with good food. Snow generally excellent but slushy in the afternoon in late season so head over to Zurs. Find the prices reasonable but then nothing to compare to as we always come back!

Great ski accommodation

We stayed at the Sabine in Oberlech; fantastic accommodation; on the slopes; good food and drink; wellness centre; ski school onsite; everything was excellent! Oberlech is above Lech by the way! The area is very quiet. There are many hiking trips to be made ​​in the area but leave with good preparation as we heard a few incidents take place each year.

Not as expensive as you expect with some nice apres!

Apparently the Dutch royal family have been coming here for years although we've never bumped into them even though we've been here many times. Although this is an expensive resort, you really get what you pay for. After spending years trying to not to spend too much each year on a ski holiday we finally realised that each year we still spend a fortune even in the cheaper resorts! So now we treat ourselves each year, come to Lech, eat out once or twice a week and make sandwiches for lunch! The accomodation is not ALL expensive and there"s a really nice atmosphere in the village centre. If you make it to Oberlech, this is a great traffic-free zone- very green!
