Alongside skiing, snowboarding and ski touring, the winter sports resort of Lech Zürs also offers a number of other activities. You can enjoy highlights such as tobogganing fun with the whole family, cross-country skiing excursions and romantic torch-lit snowshoe tours.
Winter hikes and snowshoeing
Be it through the forest, across the slopes or along the river Lech, our local region offers you a network of routes covering 40 kilometres and featuring small paths and perfectly groomed wide hiking trails for your winter hikes and snowshoeing adventures. Explore idyllic snowy landscapes, weave through magical forest groves, discover traditional mountain huts and enjoy stunning views of the Arlberg mountains. When wearing snowshoes, it becomes so easy to cross some of the snow-covered slopes and fields that you'll feel like you're practically gliding over the deep powder snow.

Cross-country skiing in Lech Zürs
Cross-country skiing is a soothing experience for body and soul. This gentle winter sport is becoming increasingly popular and our mountainous Lech Zürs region is no exception. The cross-country ski trails are free to use, cover a total of 27 kilometres and are suitable for both skating and classic cross-country skiing adventures. From flat routes through to moderate ascents and challenging sprints, Lech Zürs is sure to meet all of your cross-country skiing needs. Cross-country skiing is not only fun but also very healthy given that it trains virtually every muscle in your body, helps you find mental balance and gets you out into the fresh mountain air, which is an excellent source of oxygen and renewed energy. We are happy to provide you with more detailed information on the region’s cross-country ski trails on request. You can also ask at our hotel reception to find out more.
Tobogganing by day and night
Do you want to enjoy tobogganing at its very best? Lech Zürs is the ideal location for toboggan fans and winter sports lovers of all ages. The various toboggan runs and slopes around Hotel Edelweiss offer plenty of tobogganing fun and variety both during the day and night. In the neighbouring village of Lech, the 1.1 km-long snow-covered and illuminated toboggan run next to the Bergbahn Oberlech cable car offers you the chance to speed down the slopes between 9 am and 10 pm.
We also have our very own tobogganing hill here in Zürs, which is located right behind Hotel Edelweiss. It is particularly ideal for families with young children who want to let off some steam out in the fresh air.
Even more active fun during a winter holiday in the Arlberg mountains
For even more variety during your winter holiday, the local area also offers a number of other fun activities, for example the natural ice rink in Zürs. The rink is open daily from 3 pm to 7 pm and is the perfect setting for showing off your pirouettes and skating to music before stopping to enjoy a mug of hot punch. Every Wednesday, romance takes over the rink during the candlelight skating sessions.
Another extremely romantic activity is a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the winter landscape – a perfect opportunity to enjoy some peace and quiet in a truly idyllic setting. Anyone looking for a bit more action can experience a real adrenaline rush on a tandem paragliding flight.
We are happy to provide you with even more active tips and recommended excursions on request or in person at reception.
