Last week I was lucky to stay for a couple of nights at the Gasthof Post Lech in Lech am Arlberg. It was my third time in Lech, but the first time I was staying to sleep there, as I have been only a couple of times for lunch between meetings and going back to St Anton.
I really liked Lech, and I will write a Must-Read Guide on the destination soon. But I wanted to single out this stay at the Gasthof Post Lech. I did not know much about it, only that it was one of the best hotels in town and that it was very well located.
Lech Zürs am Arlberg is starting its season on Friday 1st December. Now with the Flexenbhan cable car opened last year between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz, with 305 km of ski slopes and 88 lifts and cable cars, this is one of the biggest ski areas in the world.
During Advent there are three major events available under the heading “Go White”: the “Snow & Safety Conference”, the “Arlberg Weinberg” gourmet fair and the popular “Fantastic Gondolas” clubbing. Advent markets, Christmas lectures and Advent carol singing also take place, filling the town with Christmas magic and making guests and locals alike yearn for this season.
