Wander In A Winter Wonderland

Winter Walking And Hiking Trails In Lech Am Arlberg

Even the strongest legs need to walk themselves out. Get dressed and get outside! The trails are going to lead you through snowy woods, along ice cold rivers all the way to lonesome huts in bewitching  forest glades. They offer you Austrian specialties to which you won't be able to say no. Don't you worry, the story of the Arlberg witch is just a fairy tale. Maybe...

Charming Trails

The snow is crunching under your shoes, your breath sits in the air as a million snow crystals and the ice cold river gently dabbles through ice and snow. You are surrounded by snow and high above you the clearest bluest sky. Wander through the winter wonderland by yourself, just you and your love, with your friends or the whole family. It is so very charming!

Charming Winter Walking Trails

Lech am Arlberg offers you a wide variety of winter walking and hiking trails. From walks through snowy woods all the way to panoramic winter hikes.

You may combine and or match the different trails:

  • From Lech to Zug

     

    Wander through a winter wonder land along the ice cold river all the way towards the "Rote Wand" (a mountain). It is about 2,8km long and starts pretty much at the front door of Hotel Lech + Residence Chesa Rosa.

  • From Zug to Älpele

    If you still got some strength left you may continue walking all the way to Älpele (a small restaurant). The walk is dreamy and adds an additional 3,8km to your winter walk. The small restaurant will seduce you with Austrian specialties. There is also a local bus that can take you and from Zug back to Lech.

  • From Lech via Spitzenegg all the way to Oberlech

    It is a short, but lovely winter hike from Lech to Oberelch. The trail leads you through the snowy forest and about 200 meters vertical all the way to Oberlech. It is a fantastic view from up there and worth the 40mins walk.

  • From Oberlech via Tannegg to Schlössle

     

    The walk to Oberlech was lovely, but there is more. You may connect the winter walk to the next one that leads you all the way up to a little plateau with an outstanding view of the surrounding peaks! Be warned you may forget the time up there... It is just beautiful!

  • From Lech to Stubenbach

    From the door step of Hotel Lech + Residence Chesa Rosa in Lech am Arlberg this little trail will lead you to Stubenbach and is suiting for families as it is only 2 km long with lots of options to build snow mans and have snow ball fights.

  • From Zürs to Flexenpass

     

    The local blue bus will take you to Zürs. From there it is about 2km long walk to the Flexenpass at over 1.700m! If you feel like enjoying a longer walk you may start at the doorstep of Hotel Lech in Lech.
  • Rüfikopf loop

    This walk is about 2km long. However you won't be paying much attention on the trail as you will be completely stunned by the outstanding view from above 2.000m! It is the perfect backdrop for your photo with the #hotellech
