There is a wide range of accommodation in cosmopolitan Lech, ranging from luxury hotels to simple guesthouses, catered chalets and self-catered apartments. Oberlech is mostly ski-in, ski out but quiet at night, and for true romantics who want to get away from it all, there is the outlying hamlet of Zug. Zürs is mostly composed of smart hotels with quick access to the lifts and pistes.
