Lech am Arlberg:

The perfect base for your skiing holiday on the Arlberg

At an altitude of 1,450 metres, at the heart of unspoilt mountain scenery, lies the village of Lech am Arlberg. Lech is not just a member of “best of alps” and known as Europe’s most picturesque village but has also made a name for itself as the epitome of winter sports, always retaining its village character despite a strong international presence. This is where tradition meets cosmopolitanism, and where outdoor fun meets cultural stimulation. Incidentally, it is also where your home from home awaits, the 4-star Cresta.Alpin.Sport.Hotel right next to the slopes in Oberlech.

Oberlech: the sunny balcony of the ski region of Lech

As its name (literally: “Upper Lech”) implies, Oberlech is located above the village of Lech am Arlberg at an altitude of 1,700 metres. The only way of getting to Oberlech is by cable car. Oberlech is therefore car-free and wonderfully quiet, perfect for leaving the daily grind behind and focusing on the here and now. Add its unique, sunny location and guaranteed snow from November until April to the mix, and you’ve got the perfect blend for a one-of-a-kind winter holiday, best enjoyed in the Cresta.Alpin.Sport.Hotel right next to the slopes!

Historical overview: How Lech am Arlberg became what it is today

When the first Walser people migrated to the Arlberg region during the 13th and 14the century, they couldn’t have known that these beautiful, yet sparse mountains would one day become one of the world’s top skiing regions. However, the invention of alpine skiing and the fact that Lech was one of the first tourist destinations for aspiring skiers were responsible for the truly extraordinary transformation of the village over the centuries. From 1885, tourism began to flourish, and Lech quickly developed into one of Austria’s top skiing resorts. The Gothic parish church of St. Nikolaus still bears witness to the earliest days of Lech.

The highest peaks, the most stunning pistes, unique snow quality and innumerable opportunities for adventure are what motivates the team of the Cresta.Alpin.Sport.Hotel to give it their all on a daily basis.
