Ready, set, go!
For the first time in 26 years the Audi FIS Ski Work Cup returns to Lech Zürs, the cradle of alpine skiing. From November 26 to 27, 2020, the international stars of skiing will make a stop in Lech Zürs where they will compete in Parallel and Giant Slalom races. The racers at the Audi FIS Ski World Cup compete for fractions of a second, valuable points, and athletic fame. The Flexenarena slope was prepared just for the two races and it is quite the challenge: a total of 365 metres, an altitude difference on 102 metres between start and finish as well as an average incline of 29 percent, created just for the best athletes. Who will win the coveted crystal speres this year?
Stories for eternity
The hotel, a place of coming and going, but also a place for comfort and familiarity away from home, and sometimes the most enchanting and popular setting for literature. Oftentimes people will meet there for a limited time, only to part a short while later – and leaving fate to run its course. Speaking of running: at Gasthof Post in Lech a valuable painting is stolen. Resident philosopher Katrin Neuer and the city’s sociologist Oliver Vonlanthen turn into amateur detectives and start to investigate. In his Post thriller Andreas Giger tells an exciting story – both, fascinating and informative – about the popular traditional hotel. The book was dedicated exclusively to all guests and staff.
Culinary Rote Wand
Small, quaint, and definitely worth a sin: the Rote Wand hotel shop stocks not just natural cosmetics by Susanne Kaufmann, timeless clothing by Lenai & Linai, and incense bowls from Bregenz Forest, but also an exclusive selection of home-made dishes with ingredients vo:dô (= from here) as well as high-quality products that are made with a lot of passion for detail. Be it beef goulash in a jar made of local beef from Zug, vegetable curry with veggies from the Vetterhof organic farm, or home-made blackberry jam: whether you’re a sweet tooth, epicure, or fan of Rote Wand delicacies, this selected range of products will yield the perfect souvenir to remind you of your culinary stay at the hotel and put a smile on the faces of those who had to stay behind.
