In the spring, when the snow recedes further and further up the mountains, the winter season draws to a close – and the classic cars appear. The winding mountain and pass roads of the Arlberg are made for vintage car rallies. After all, what makes the pistes of Lech Zürs am Arlberg exciting for winter sports enthusiasts also makes the winding roads through mountains and valleys exciting to lovers of old vehicles.
Eldorado for explorersUnforgettable trips
Due to its location right in the heart of the Lechtal Alps, Lech Zürs provides the ideal conditions for a varied holiday with a classic car. Within a radius of about 100 kilometres, there are more than ten Alpine passes. These include the impressive Flexen Pass with its gallery which is stuck to the rock like a swallow's nest, or the Hochtannberg Pass with its vast plateau. As well as a special driving experience, the area offers wonderful cultural landscapes – from the ancient Bregenz Forest through the gentle countryside around Lake Constance to the idyllic Lechtal valley. All doable in one day quite comfortably and without any time pressure.Pictures & Videos

600 kilometres of roadthrough fantastic alpine scenery
The roads, which run through Alpine terrain, require good driving skills and an appropriate amount of engine power as well as good brakes. Just the thing for classic car aficionados, the Arlberg Classic Car Rally is not only a fixture for experienced drivers, but also for those who want to become one. A one-day course is an excellent way to prepare for the demands of the rally. An entertaining supporting programme rounds off the event. The highlight is the gala evening and awards ceremony held in the "glass tent" in the grounds of the Hotel Arlberg.More information
