The Lech Zürs region is a proper Eldorado for families. No matter if they come with young kids or teenagers, like to hike over rough and smooth, ride a bike, swim cool waters, fight epic table tennis battles, or are on a secret mission on Bolzplatz – the mountain summer promises everyone unforgettable adventures on the Arlberg.
But first...the right preparation:
Provisions, clothing, and a first-aid kit belong in the backpack for any activity. Exercise will make you hungry, so: snacks like fruit, sandwiches, or energy bars, and plenty of drinks are important. Since the mountain weather is known to provide the occasional surprise one should also think of bringing a change of clothing: a warm, water-repellent jacket, and sun protection are a must.
“The journey is the reward!”
During hikes and bike tours the motto is: “The journey is the reward!” The route must be varied – hidden alps, wildlife, wild streams, and old ruins will make the children’s eyes light up. And don’t forget: plan plenty of breaks and always keep safety precautions in mind! The Lech Zürs tourism centre is always happy to answer questions on tours that are suitable for families and guided leisure time activities also are a practical option that will ensure an enjoyable time in the Lech Zürs region.
