Lech-Zurs Accommodation

There is a wide range of accommodation options in cosmopolitan Lech, convenient Zürs or ski-in, ski-out Oberlech. There are 291 hotels and pensions in Lech and 18 in Zürs, with 6,987 and 1,503 guest beds respectively. The line-up of six 5-star hotels, forty-nine 4-star hotels and thirty-two 3-star hotels is impressive.

Over 25 million Euros has been spent upgrading the lift system, infrastructure and many of the hotels, with the aim of improving quality rather than adding more beds - and it shows. Lech and Zurs are best known for impressive 5-star and 4-star deluxe hotels, and prices reflect that, but if you book early enough you can still find guesthouses offering bed and breakfast at moderate prices. Christmas is very busy in Lech-Zürs and even the traditionally quieter weeks in mid-January are now increasingly popular with Russian guests, whose Orthodox New Year falls after the western New Year.

Each hotel in Lech has its own quite distinct personality and is a matter of personal taste in terms of décor, formality and scale as well as convenience factors. Grandest in Lech is the traditional 5-star Gasthof Post (jacket and tie compulsory for dinner) closely followed by the 5-star Arlberg, the more contemporary 5-star Almhof Schneider, the super stylish new 5-star Hotel Aurelio and the traditional 5-star Hotel Krone. Next level down in Lech is a terrific selection of 4-star properties such as the stylish Hotel Kristiania - modern interior and vibrant colours, the homely Aurora - traditional pinks and greens, the Hotel Krone - more traditional and the Hotel Tannbergerhof - convenient and lively atmosphere; all of which are recommended, but quite different in style. Gasthof Rote Wand in Zug just outside Lech and Goldener Berg in Oberlech are both highly recommended if you do not mind an out of town location.

Top of the range hotels in Zürs are the 5-star Hotel Zürserhof, Thurnhers Alpenhof, Sporthotel Lorünser and our favourite 4-star hotel in Zürs, the Sporthotel Edelweiss.
