Hiking

Something quite special

When others first have to take the cable car up, you are already right in Lech in midst of the wild-romantic mountains of the Austrian Alps. Lech am Arlberg is 1445 m above sea level. Picturesque walks lead to majestic mountains, flowering alpine meadows, rushing wild brooks and quiet mountain lakes directly from the hotel. Whether for a leisurely walk or a high alpine hike - there is something for everyone to discover. Guided hikes with Jürgen remain in the memory of Austria guests for quite some time.
