There’s rarely been a time when so many people longed for the simple joys of summer. A cozy hideaway in the hills, time with the family, dipping your feet into a cool mountain stream, tuning out the digital world for just a while. The Moosbrugger family has for generations welcomed guests with the warm hospitality and stylish settings of its Hotel Post Lech — steeped in the finest tradition of nature and fresh alpine air. It is the summer getaway, perfected... year upon year.
Austria has an enduring tradition of summer resorts — even the Kaiser was known to partake in his time. Until recently, these retreats had taken on a staid, even outdated air to many. Current events have very much given them a new life. Demand and opportunity for exotic adventures have cratered. People are instead seeking to press pause, looking to escape for a spell from the flood of digital information and constant connectivity. They long for quiet and recuperation in nature, yearning for the healthy quiet and the wholesome vastness of the mountains.
Lech am Arlberg has a reputation for magnificent mountain backdrops and as a winter sports paradise. Yet it is also a perfect summer refuge, with majestic scenery and magical spots such as Lake Formarin, hiking and mountain bike tours aplenty, and curative mountain air to invigorate every cell.
The Moosbrugger family welcomes guests to the Post Lech from June 18 to September 26, sharing the wonders of the alpine Lech summer. The warm flair of the house spins together a wonderful tapestry of elegance and comfort. The spa and wellness area, including the outdoor pool, are open to external guests, where hygiene rules allow. Our smaller guests can also romp to their hearts’ content, with a separate pool and water slide reserved just for them. The hotel’s Ebra Garden, stretching across 6.000 m2, offers a dazzling mix of native flowers, woods and shrubs, coming together in a blossoming paradise perhaps best enjoyed barefoot. Golf aficionados can warm up for their excursions to the nearby golf course in Zug by taking a few swings at the hotel’s own “Akademie” training area. At the culinary level, the Post offers delights from rustic classics such as Kaiserschmarren to creative haute cuisine from Executive Chef David Wagger.
The former post station was acquired in 1937 by the Moosbrugger family, which turned it into an establishment of notable quality. Since 1976 it has been a member of the international Relais&Châteaux association. In 1990, Kristl Moosbrugger became the first woman to receive the honor of “Hotelier of the Year.“ Her son Florian earned that same title in 2004. Hotel Post Lech currently offers 95 beds in 48 rooms and suites, as well as an extensive spa with outdoor pool and a second indoor pool reserved entirely for children. Extensive renovations were undertaken in 2017, giving a new look to the legendary establishment. The restaurant is open to hotel guests and outside parties with fine dishes from Executive Chef David Wagger. It is just one way that the Post honors its original tradition as a guest house for all travelers. www.postlech.com
