Top things to See and Do in Lech
The local markets are always worth a visit - they're great for taking photos and soaking up a bit of atmosphere. And of course, you can scoop up some bargain souvenirs. Farmers' markets are regularly held at the Rufiplatz throughout the summer months.
There are a handful of sports shops selling casual activewear along the main road. For more shopping options, pop over to St Anton, which has a wider variety to peruse.
There’s not much in the way of exciting nightlife here, but there’s sometimes the odd festival or live folk music performance. It pays to see check out what’s on week by week in resort.
Lech is a quiet town with just a smattering of drinking holes. Here, a quiet cocktail and a stroll after dinner is the norm.
Having been voted one of the most beautiful towns in Europe, it comes as no surprise that Lech’s restaurants have won numerous gastronomic awards and are some of the most highly-rated eateries in the world. Michelin-starred restaurants and mountain huts are in abundance here, so you can experience the best of both worlds – traditional Alpine cuisine and modern, inventive fine dining.
Michelin-starred meals at La Fenice
On the high street, inside Hotel Arlberg, is La Fenice, a Michelin-starred restaurant with an excellent choice of wines, a charming atmosphere and interesting desserts.
Sip fig vodka at Rud-Alpe Gastronomie
A short way up the mountain is the timber cabin, Rud-Alpe Gastronomie. The charming, chalet-style décor makes this hut feel homely and warm, while the dishes are delicious. Their fig vodka is highly recommended.
Pizza for lunch at Schneggarei
Near the bottom of the main lift is Schneggarei, an Austrian restaurant housed in a wooden barn-style building. The interiors are modern and minimalistic and the tables are set over two floors. Their wood-fired pizzas are a popular lunchtime option.
