The history and philosophy of your four-star hotel on the Arlberg
The four-star Hotel Tannbergerhof in the heart of Lech am Arlberg has been a byword for sophisticated Alpine chic, mountain charm, first-class service & a comfortable atmosphere of well-being since 1924.
Our work is our passion, and we provide our guests with the best the Alps have to offer. Sport, relaxation and culinary delights combine to create an unforgettable holiday in the Tannbergerhof, the only four-star hotel in Lech to feature ski-in, ski-out convenience.
Looking back: a journey through time in the hotel's history
The success story of the four-star hotel on the Arlberg began with founder Martin Jochum (born in 1885). Martin Jochum passed the concessional examinations for the hotel & restaurant industry on the 28th of January, 1928, and so laid the foundation for a hotel with a grand tradition in the exclusive holiday village of Lech.
