Families in winter in Lech Zürs

When was the last time you had a snowball fight?

Winter action for young & old

Build an igloo or a snow castle with your own hands. Just like Elsa, children can breathe a snowman into life and experience the magic of winter in their very own imaginative way for experiences they will remember for many years to come.


In winter, Lech Zürs is transformed into an adventure playground made of snow.


Time seems to melt away during a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snow-covered winter landscape or while ice skating at the natural ice skating rink in Zürs or the rink in Lech. Parents in need of a break can also arrange for professional childcare: There are great children's clubs and childcare options in Lech, Zürs and Oberlech. Skiing, tobogganing and spending time with siblings and new playmates is the order of the day during winter holidays in Lech Zürs.

Family holidays in Lech Zürs

After a morning ski lesson, the afternoon belongs to the family. Little rascals can either show their parents what they have learned during the morning, or the whole family can explore the winter landscape of Lech Zürs am Arlberg together.


Sledging and tobogganing are very popular pursuits. In addition to the wooden sledge, a tobogganing classic, the minibob sledge is also very popular for its speed, stability and good manoeuvrability. The emergency stop option, i.e. “tip over and fall into the snow," is an easy safety precaution to learn for all sledging fans. In addition to ice skating, a horse-drawn sleigh ride is the highlight of many family holidays. Equipped with a warm blanket, travelling through the winter landscape together is a delight experiences for family members of all ages. Horse-drawn sleigh ride info and reservations can be found here.
