Transportation


Transportation


 

Getting to Lech is easy (and beautiful)

Overview from Lech Tourism Office: Click Here

By car: Lech is just a few hours' drive from several international airports. Google Map

By rail: Trains stop in Langen am Arlberg (take the #91 bus to Lech) and St. Anton am Arlberg (the #92 bus) (expect to pay less than $10 per person for the bus)

Taxis can also be arranged from the rail stations (expect to pay about $70)  

 
 
 

Flights

Closest airports and driving times from Lech:

  • Innsbruck, Austria - 1 hour 40 minutes (Directions)
  • Munich, Germany - 3 hours 7 minutes (Directions)
  • Zurich, Switzerland - 2 hours 15 minutes (Directions)
 

car rental

Renting cars is often inexpensive and easy in Europe. For short stays, you usually only need to show your US driver's license; I have never needed an international driver's license. Nevertheless, it never hurts to have one and they are only $20 from AAA (Website here).

Use of the highways in Austria requires the purchase of a sticker (called a "vignette"). A 10-day sticker costs about $10. If you are caught on the highway without a sticker, the fine is about $150.

We have the best luck using Expedia. They have very reasonable rates (often less than $200 per week) and they usually offer free cancelation.

Train travel is another great option. Trains can take you from any airport (Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Innsbruck) to Langen am Arlberg or St. Anton.
