About Zurs

Zürs is within the Arlberg ski area, a spectacular mountain pass with runs from altitudes of 2811 metres all the way down to 1300 metres. Our pick of the best places to stay in Zurs is superbly located to make the most of the winter sports, with its ski-in ski-out situation.

This is one of the world's best ski regions. Often called Lech Zürs am Arlberg, skiers only need one pass to ski this whole winter wonderland of 80+ inclines and lifts and over 276kms worth of slopes.

The altitude and position, surrounded by the alps, means that Zürs gets reliably excellent snow. And also that it's spectacularly beautiful. Both contribute to the region's popularity, and this is a popular spot, covered in resorts.

But despite its popularity the infrastructure is excellent and there's plenty of space, so you should only queue just as the ski schools are opening. And Arlberg is the birthplace of the ski school, with terrain to suit all levels.

Between them, Zürs, and its twin resort Lech, have something to suit every kind of skier. Zürs has the nursery slopes, but Lech has a good assortment of gentler pistes, and there's plenty of pistes to challenge intermediate skiers, and off-piste options for the more adventurous. One of the longest runs in the area, the famous 'Der Weisse Ringe' (The White Ring) runs 22kms between the two towns.

Zürs has the better skiing, but Lech has the glamour - this is the kind of place where you're likely to see Lamborghinis with snow chains, and the boutiques carry mink and diamonds - and the traditional alpine village feel.

Zürs in Summer

During the warmer months this alpine scenery is wonderful for hiking through, and the mountain air makes it a great spot for 'wellness centre' type resorts where you can relax and revitalise.

  • If you want a resort with everything, then Thurnhers Alpenhof is one of the best places to stay in Zürs. There's an in-house skiing and snowboarding instructor and a spa, and staff will devise a personalised programme for you - which can also include gourmet five to eight course dinners every evening. This resort has been in the same family for almost fifty years, and they really know how to look after their guests.
  • For the ultimate in luxury, including ski valets and bath butlers, try Kristiania Lech.
  • Or if you're looking for family friendly simplicity, consider the Hotel Stulzis, a charming little chalet style hotel.
