The stylish Hotel Gotthard is in the centre of Lech and has been family run for three generations. It started out as a small bakery in the 1930s, and has remained in the family ever since. With an on-site micro-brewery serving up cold beers and a café baking fresh bread and cakes, it's easy to see why we love this hotel. 

Home-brewed beer

If you're looking for the perfect après ski drink, the Hotel Gotthard boasts its own micro-brewery. Enjoy a pint of beer in the hotel's cosy bar or out on the sun terrace. If beer isn't for you, the hotel owners also distil their own schnapps and mountain herb gin which feature perfectly in a signature cocktail.

The hotel's wine offering is top-notch with a huge selection from their cellar.

Chill out in the evening in the Sports Lounge with snooker, billiards and ping pong table.

Pool with a view

What could be better than relaxing in a heated pool surrounded by the mountains. The hotel's small outdoor pool offers excellent views of the snowy peaks.

The wellness area also features a large indoor pool with whirlpool and massage jets, a relaxation area, and a sauna area (nude, open to ages 15+ only) with Finnish and bio saunas, steam room and waterbeds. There is also a textile and family sauna that everyone can use (with swimwear).

Authentic food

With its roots as a bakery, food is at the heart of the Hotel Gotthard and they still bake their own bread and pastries in the bakery today, just in time for you to enjoy at breakfast each morning.

The hotel's talented chefs treat you to a four course dinner in the evening.

The on-site Café Gotthard is a must-visit too for some warm apple strudel and freshly brewed coffee.

Ski in Lech and you'll enjoy one of Austria's most exclusive resorts, dominated by a lovely 14th century church and river, high up in the Arlberg valley next to the tiny hamlet of Zürs, surrounded by stunning peaks.

Skiing and snowboarding in Lech

Skiing holidays in Lech give you easily accessible slopes and good intermediate skiers can enjoy the famous White Ring circuit that links Lech with Zürs, Zug and Oberlech. Wonderfully picturesque runs link Lech to scenic Oberlech, whilst the newly replaced Madlochbahn and Zugerbergbahn efficiently completes the White Ring Circuit loop from Zürs to Zug.

The extensive Arlberg ski area also includes the neighbouring resorts of Stuben, St.Christoph, St. Anton and Sonnenkopf, although there is more than enough skiing for even the best skiers in Zürs and Lech alone. In addition, off-piste opportunities are numerous and these are the only resorts in Austria that offer heli-skiing.

Where to stay in Lech

You won't find many finer hotels than in Lech. This exclusive resort has some of the best 4* superior and 5* hotels in Austria, many of them with ski-in, ski-out locations and top quality service. The dining here is second to none, with gourmet dishes featuring in many of the hotel's half-board options.

Bars and restaurants in Lech

Lech provides sophisticated après-ski, including some outdoor ice bars serving champagne. Non-skiers can browse exclusive boutiques, enjoy the extensive walking trails in the valley or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride from the picturesque village into the romantic Zug Valley.
