Winter enjoyment in Austria's largest ski area

Its reputation is legendary, people are mad about it! It's skiing's crowning glory!

Like snow-crystals in some vast natural tiara, the jewels in this crown are the Arlberg region's five villages, Lech, Zürs, St. Anton, St. Christoph and Stuben, each of which has its own individual charm. Their communal ski area is Ski Arlberg .

One of the world's top ski areas is located right here in Austria, and our Hotel Bellevue is right on the slopes.

One of the world's finest multi-faceted ski resorts, with an unrivalled reputation for reliable snow, Lech offers a total of 305 km of ski pistes, 200 km off-piste powder runs and 87 lifts and cable cars.

On the Arlberg

The Arlberg region, situated at a height of between 1,300 and 2,811 metres above sea level, is not onlyAustria's largest ski region; in international assessments carried out by experts of the International Ski Resort Service, the area has been rated among the top ski resorts in the world.

Each of the five villages of the Arlberg has always exuded its own individual charm: the unashamed luxury of Lech; the flair of Zürs; the traditional charm of Stuben; exclusive St. Christoph; sporty, cosmopolitan St. Anton am Arlberg.

The ski area is also known as the "cradle of downhill skiing", where you can ski in the tracks of the ski pioneers of history, and still enjoy the high-tech infrastructure of a modern lift system.
