Hotel Krone in Lech. Tradition since 1741

The Krone von Lech. History, tradition and hospitality at its very best

In the same year as Maria Theresia was crowned empress of Austria, Lech got its own crown. Since 1741 the family-managed, traditional Hotel Krone on the Arlberg has provided guests from across the globe with a stylish and cosy home from home, in the midst of the majestic mountains in Lech.

When bridle paths still lead to Lech, travellers were able to eat, drink and recover from their exertions in the Krone. These days the 5-star hotel in Lech provides its guests with the ultimate holiday break from daily life, a culinary tour de force and genuine hospitality, with that inimitable 'Ländle' charm.

The contemporary, luxury and lifestyle elements are what make this town a hot spot in the Alps. At the same time, this world-renowned town is well-placed, has a personal feel and is idyllic. Crystal-clear streams, tranquil Alpine lakes and the majestic mountains characterise the area around Lech. The perfect setting for an unforgettable summer or winter holiday in Austria.

Arlberg, the birthplace of skiing

In the winter of 1898/99 four ski mountaineers made their way across the Arlberg for the first time. In 1907 a young man started to work as a ski instructor, a profession that had not been heard of before then. In 1910 ski courses were offered for the first time on the slopes of the Arlberg. Arlberg Ski Club founded in 1901 is one of the most traditional and most successful ski clubs in the world and has produced dozens of ski legends. More than a hundred years of experience in skiing has made Lech am Arlberg one of the best towns in the world for skiing.

In the Hotel Krone am Arlberg, your tradition-filled hotel in the Austrian Alps, the mountains are almost within touching distance. It is just a short walk from the 5-star hotel in the centre of Lech to the Schlegelkopfbahn and the Rüfikopfbahn, which take you to the snow-covered slopes of the Arlberg.
