Winter hiking on the Arlberg for families
The most beautiful tours for joint trips
The quiet, almost idyllic winter scenery in Lech Zürs and the neighbouring Arlberg villages offers many an amazing trail for all ages. Winter hiking on the Arlberg for families provides you with several perfectly snow-cleared paths leading you deep into the heart of the region. We’ve only collected easy, not too long paths for you that shouldn’t pose a problem for little legs.
Family hikes in the Lechtal
The Lechtalweg isn’t only popular in summer as this tour can also easily be completed in winter in under an hour. Start level with the old, covered bridge in Lech and walk snugly to Zürs across flat streets, cleared forest paths and small bridges. Quickly go back to the start by bus.
Distance: 3.8 km
Reach the mountain station on a proper 2,350 m in no time with the Rüfikopfbahn. The cool, clear mountain air lifts up the spirits and invites you to take a deep breath. Walk across the high plateau in half an hour on almost fully flat 1.2 km. The grand view along the round tour will even amaze the littlest ones.
Distance: 1.2 km
Zürs is home to another mountainous round tour for the entire family. Reach 1,700 m quickly with the Trittkopfbahn before walking to the Flexenpass at a slight incline. Rest in between on one of the many benches while the kids frolic – we recommend sturdy shoes for winter family hiking on the Arlberg in Lech Zürs.
