The History of our Hotel!

Our hotel - located right in the centre of Lech at the Arlberg, next to the skiing slopes and the hiking area - is known as one of the most famous hotel businesses throughout the Arlberg, especially when it comes to our cozy Martin Stüberl, the Tannberg hotel bar or the famous ice bar!

The success story of our Arlberg hotel started with the hotel founder Martin Jochum, born in 1885, who - right until the building of the hotel - worked as head cheese maker at at dairy cooperative society (today = Lech Zürs tourism board). On January 28 in 1928, Martin Jochum successfully passed his concession exam for the hotel and restaurant industry and thus he built the foundation stone for one of the most traditional hotels throughout Lech.
