The Arlberg. A legendary wintersports region in Austria

The Arlberg is legendary. It is the birthplace of Alpine skiing, the epitome of passion and wintersport, at the highest level. The Arlberg ski area extends between 1450 and 2800 metres altitude to the west and the east of the Flexen Pass. In the north west are the Vorarlberg towns of Lech, Zürs and Stuben, while in the south-east, already in Tyrol, are the towns of St. Anton and St. Christoph.

The Hotel Krone in Lech is an ideal winter home for holiday-makers who have fallen for the inspiration of the Arlberg region and with skisport. The 5-star hotel is located in the centre of Lech. The Schlegelkopfbahn, opposite the hotel, takes you to the loveliest pistes in the Arlberg.

The Arlberg ski area – variety-packed, exclusive and world-renowned

Even in 1931 the inspirational beauty of the Arlberg was the film backdrop for Arnold Fanck's film "The White Ecstasy". A film that made skiing in the Arlberg famous. Since that time the magical snowy landscape in the Arlberg has barely changed. Wedel on the historic tracks made by skipioneers. The ascent is made more convenient and speedier thanks to the 88 cable cars and lifts.
