This week we will be bringing you a special series from contributor Carolyn Banfalvi on the most luxe Alpine hotels in Austria. If you ever fancied a "Sound of Music" getaway, here's how to do it without taking the Vow of Poverty. Any questions or suggestions? Let us know.
Lech and Zürs, two neighboring towns in Austria’s Vorarlberg region, are among the country’s most fashionable ski resorts. Skiers love the ski pass system here, in which passes are valid on a huge network of lifts spanning several towns.
Zürs is solely a ski town, with no actual residents just a row of hotels, which is why the more year-round Lech attracted me more. Lech, too, has tons of hotels, and the central Die Krone Von Lech is one of its stand-outs.
