The village of Lech am Arlberg stands amid the mountains in the west of Austria, on the banks of the River Lech surrounding by steep slopes. Visitors who hire a car in Lech will be able to tour the remote Alpine area surrounding the village. This region of steep-sided valleys and mountain passes includes neighbouring communities like Zürs, St Christoph, St Anton and Stuben that are all part of the major Arlberg winter-sports area. Further afield, visitors find that the historic town of Landeck makes a good day trip, thanks to its old stone castle overlooking the riverside village.
Lech has become a leading up-market ski resort and several champion skiers live in the village. It has an affluent atmosphere and attracts jet-set skiers like members of Europe's Royalty and Hollywood celebrities. If you hire a car in Lech you'll be able to see there are luxury hotels and highly rated restaurants around the village. These help maintain its popularity in the summer. Apart from skiing, Lech does have some attractions of its own. The 14th-century gothic church of St Nicholas has become a village landmark with its onion-shaped dome and there is an impressive museum of mountain lifestyle in centuries gone by housed in a surviving 16th-century village house.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
