From the centre of Lech, you first head in the direction of Dorfbrunnen. From here follow the signs to Zug / Rudalpe and cross the Lech towards Hotel Schranz. With the Rudalpe firmly in sight, you finally leave the road and take the beautiful but steep winter hiking trail uphill. This leads in several serpentines uphill to Rudalpe, which is ideal for a stopover. Afterwards it goes either over the same way down into the valley, or one crosses the runway, in order to arrive at the winter footpath to Oberlech. From Oberlech you can take the local bus or gondola down to the valley.
Take the train to Langen am Arlberg or St. Anton am Arlberg station. From there, buses (no. 91 +92) leave for Lech Zürs am Arlberg at regular intervals.
