Win an evening meal with the Norwegian ski racer Henrik Kristoffersen at the Burg Hotel Oberlech am Arlberg.
He has already participated in several Winter Olympics and countless world championships. His skills have been recognised with silver, gold and bronze medals. Slalom and Giant Slalom are two of his best disciplines. We're talking about Henrik Kristoffersen.
And together with the glove manufacturer Reusch, we are offering you the chance to spend some time with the successful winter sportsman here at the BURG. Meet the man himself, ask him some questions, receive some individual tips – and enjoy our culinary highlights at the same time.
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.
The pearl among skiing conditions in Lech am Arlberg.
If firn were a car, which one would it be? People on the mountain are of one mind: a Rolls Royce. The flawless diamond among the 17 types of snow known to connoisseurs.
22 km of skiing fun and adrenaline rush!
The time will be here on 18 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.
The call of the "wihte gold" - it can already be heard...
The late summer just started and winter is already luring with its call for a white splendour – a preview.
Music, atmosphere, a lot of green and many honorary needle holders
Our summer still takes a while, in fact until 17 September. Then we are closing our hotel doors for several weeks again. So it is thus time for a short review to a eventful summer. It began with the season start on 23 June and Arlberg Classic Golf Cup and Arlberg Classig Car Rally – a custom-made start with a lot of joy on new greens and much PS in all vehicles.

Hardly any other leisure activity is better suitable for slowing down and combines nature, leisure time and joy of movement than hiking. Lech Zürs am Arlberg offers a unique range of hiking opportunities for comfortable Sunday walks to hiking tours lasting several days. Lech Zürs – a ‘Garden of Eden’ for every hiker.
Arlberg Express Oldie Bus
With his old Mercedes bus from 1956 Horst Fritz drives from Arlberg Express groups of up to 18 guests stylishly to the most beautiful places on Arlberg and far beyond. The vintage bus already even drove to Sylt. The bus travelled over 1.5 million kilometres with lots of fun and is still not retiring.
