Facts why you should choose a golf vacation in Lech

and why Lech is worth a golf vacation

A wonderful golfing vacation is not just about beautiful golf courses and great golf resorts. It’s the “little things” that can make all the difference. Below you will find a list of further criteria to help you make your decision. Is there anything else you require for a blissful golfing vacation?


Schlegelkopf-Petersboden: Adventure mountain

Use your golfing vacation in Lech for memorable mountain moments!

You can go hiking or take a cable car to enjoy wide, open skies and unforgettable views. If you want, you can do much more besides golfing during your summer vacation. There is much to be discovered in the mountains of Lech!

With the Oberlech cable car, for instance, you can noiselessly soar up to the sunny plateau of Oberlech. From here, it is but a short distance to the Skyspace-Lech art installation, which presents new dimensions of mountain light. Or you can explore the themed walk “Arlenzauberweg” and learn more about the specific characteristics of various plants and animals.


Shooting stars make golfers’ wishes come true…

Every year around the feast of St. Lawrence (10 August), the earth passes through the Perseids meteor shower and hundreds of shooting stars are visible in the sky at night.

To honour this spectacle, Lech organises an annual event on the Saturday closest to the date:

Visitors can take a cable car to the Rüfikopf “panorama mountain”, which boasts a 360-degree observation deck at 2350 metres above sea level with a view of the entire Arlberg region and the wide and clear nocturnal skies. The trip includes a welcome drink, a fondue dinner and a shot of schnapps at the Panoramarestaurant Rüfikopf, followed by a guided tour presented by astrophysicist Dr. Robert Seeberger. If you see a shooting star and wish for many birdies, you can try your luck on the golf course the next day. It’s all written in the stars! At any rate, you will leave with an unforgettable memory of a night on the mountain under a clear, starry sky.
