Zürs am Arlberg

Small place. 

Great times. 

Where the first skis left their mark.

Zürs can justifiably be described as a powder snow paradise, where ski runs usually start right at the peaks in powder snow and terminate at the hotel doorstep.


Skiers in Zürs are always at the heart of the action. Not only is the region home to elegant hotels and gourmet restaurants, it also offers perfect snow conditions at Austria’s largest connected ski area – leading right to your front door. With all hotels offering “ski-in, ski-out”, meaning that guests can strap on their skis right in front of the hotel before heading out to the slopes and lifts, it’s clear why Zürs enjoys such a deserved reputation among winter sports fans.

The cradle of Alpine skiing

As the cradle of Alpine skiing, Zürs boasts a storied history of winter sports dating back to the turn of the 20th century. In addition, its people were pioneers when it came to exploring the potential of winter. Key players included Viktor Sohm, who held the first skiing lesson for locals in 1906, and the team around Sepp Bildstein that built Austria’s first surface lift in 1937.


The entire region is now firmly established as one of the world’s elite winter sports destinations and the numbers speak for themselves: 200 km of high-Alpine powder runs, 305 km of perfectly groomed ski runs, lifts featuring heated seats, and 16 hotels and B&Bs with a 4 or 5-star rating.


The time for indulgence begins the moment you unbuckle your ski boots. Zürs is all about uniting breathtaking nature with perfect service, comfortable hotels and top-quality establishments: choose from outstanding gourmet restaurants, atmospheric parlours serving regional dishes, elegant wine cellars and trendy cocktail bars.

Trittkopf, BBQ Station
From special to extraordinary.After the successful new construction and conversion of the ski lift connection to St. Anton am Arlberg, the Trittkopf mountain station, built in 1962 at 2423 m above sea level, is no longer required as a lift station.The question arises: "What to do with the building?Due to the top location and the increasing number of guests, it was obvious to build a restaurant. The aim of the spatial design was the recognition of the original building and its former function as mountain station of the cable car. The cable sheaves and the supporting cable shoe were integrated into the new concept and are therefore unique selling points. These elements together with the urban ambience, where wood, leather, felt, stone and black steel play the main roles, lend the room character and charm.The crowning glory are the generous glass fronts, which convey the feeling of freedom and expanse in the high alpine mountain world.The sight of the meat parts of ribs, beef breast, turkey breast as well as Pulled Pork, the expert can immediately see that BBQ is celebrated here at the highest level. The various side dishes are based on American recipes and therefore meet almost every taste.200 grams of perfectly ripened Black Angus beef, together with crunchy iceberg lettuce, fresh tomato and Chibotlesauce are assembled into a burger in front of the guest's eyes.Cookies and cakes come from our own pastry shop. Craftbeers and local beer, matching wines round off the menu.The result is Europe's highest, original BBQ Restaurant with the name TRITTKOPF BBQ STATION.By arriving with the cabin, even guests without skis can comfortably reach the TRITTKOPF BBQ STATION to enjoy this incomparable view and the delicacies from the menu.
