Winter magic in Lech-Zug
the Arlberg - cradle of downhill skiing
It’s a star, probably the brightest in the whole of the Alps. Its name is uttered with passion, its reputation is legendary. For winter sports aficionados it is simply the icing on the cake! The Arlberg – more than just the cradle of downhill skiing.
With a ski area boasting 305 km of marked ski runs, the Arlberg has always been an aristocrat among winter sports destinations. Not content with merely being one of the most extensive ski resorts in the world, it also offers unrivalled diversity and an extremely reliable snow record. 200 km of powder and off-piste runs promise an unforgettable skiing experience. Powder hounds from all over the world all swear that the powder on the Arlberg is unbeatable and the views are superb. Off-piste skiing on the Arlberg is an experience never to be forgotten. Top-qualified professional ski instructors and mountain guides are there to help you find the best spots. And it goes without saying that a place where the art of skiing was conceived will boast an infrastructure second to none. A network of 87 lifts and cable cars give access the dizzy heights - and the ski magic!
The rooms, the food and the service are all very good and the atmosphere is really relaxed and welcoming. The owners work very hard themselves, but they are always approachable and friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. We will certainly be back, and have already booked again for next year.

Rediscovering low gear
While fans of adrenalin sports are powering down the ski runs, those preferring more gentle exercise can enjoy snow-shoe walking, winter walking and cross-country skiing. Here too there is a wide choice of routes and circuits to suit every ability and preference. Approx. 40 km of winter tracks are available for walkers, and cross-country skiers will enjoy exploring 27 kilometres of well-groomed and diverse cross-country circuits.
Wildlife and nature fans cannot afford to miss the weekly guided twilight walks, for in winter this is the time of day to observe red and roe deer feeding. In addition do not forget the snow-shoe walks, toboggan run and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
Gasthof Alphorn in Zug is in “pole position” for all these activities. It’s out of the hotel and straight out on to the ski run, the cross-country circuit, the winter walking track or the horse-drawn sleigh. Whatever takes your fancy!
