Winter holidays in the traffic-free Oberlech

Something special about the destination Oberlech it that it’s car-free during the wintertime, that means no cars, no exhaust fumes, no traffic noise and your luggage gets by cable car to the lodge - right into your room. Our guests enjoy the "ski-in ski-out" and can start directly from the lodge in the largest connected ski area in Austria. However, if you prefer a more "solid ground", you can always use the subterranean tunnel system below Oberlech to get from A to B. The private road from Lech to Oberlech opens from May to November, so the ski-lodge can be easily reached by car in summer.
