Now we can admit it: we can't help being a little bit proud.
This year, a season is drawing to a close that began with a very special award for the Arlberg: right on time for the start of the 2017/2018 winter season, Skigebiete-Test.de named the ten best skiing regions in the world. The crème de la crème of winter sports were chosen from over 250 ski resorts, closely inspected and tested in ten categories. The result: with a score of 90 out of a possible 100 points, Ski Arlberg won the title ahead of Zermatt and Serfaus Fiss Ladis.
"It's a pity that you cannot caress the wines."
Well, that's what Kurt Tucholsky thought, anyway. But when you see how lovingly sommeliers Claudia Fath and Hermann Lankmaier handle the treasures in the excellent wine cellar of the BURG, then you would probably be inclined to agree with the poet. We asked the two to tell us a little about their job in general, and their secret wine preferences in particular.

Each year when the winter season is coming to a close, our guests look forward to skiing in the sun, cosy après-ski hours and the legendary spring festival on the Oberlech Plateau.

Like every year, the winter season in the Arlberg is once again all about skilled quality craftsmanship.
The Arlberg has seen its share of crazy things – after all, it's one of the things the region is known for – but things are going to get even crazier on 13 February 2018.
Head barman Olli and his team have decided to go the whole hog in the "Carnival of the Animals". And one thing is certain: it's going to be colourful, noisy and "närrisch" – mad in the typical carnival way.

He explains why some Kaiser Rolls are still fresh in the eventing, wholegrain products don’t have to be coarse and the best baguette doesn’t have to be French.
How one summer can turn into 5 years. And one season's guest into a head chef
Sebastian Daeche had already travelled quite a distance before – by his own admission – he felt drawn to lech for a season. And he was not the first person to instantly fall in love with the place. But we‘ll let our new chef de cuisine speak for himself.
22 km of skiing fun and adrenaline rush!
The time will be here on 20 January when the most legendary race on the Arlberg will be taking place – "The White Ring" race. Anyone who enjoys skiing or who fancies a real adventure is invited to take part.
Singing and browsing into the twilight hours
The best time of the year is filled with the scent of biscuits and mulled wine and the sound of Christmas carols – Advent. Singing, browsing, watching – our village is the perfect place to spend an atmospheric Advent and Christmas time.
