Dining out in Lech, Austria

One night a week the chalet staff are set free to go and do whatever it is they get up to, but where does that leave you in terms of an evening meal? Well, in Lech this is not a cause for concern. There is plenty of choice making this night out of the hotel a great opportunity to go and sample some local cuisine in an authentic Austrian atmosphere. Whether it’s a wooden cabin serving traditional Austrian food or a simple pizza restaurant you really can’t go wrong when dining out in Lech.


One very popular spot is Schneggarei, this traditional style wooden hut at the bottom of the ski slopes is an après bar favoured by the ski instructors in the afternoon but come the evening it is one of the most sought after places to eat out so be sure to get your reservation in early! Serving a delicious mix of cuisine from fondues right through to steaks and pizzas there is something for everyone and all while you enjoy the lively Austrian atmosphere.

For those who just want something simple, Olympia is a great and easy choice to make. With a predominantly Italian menu comprising of tasty pizzas and delightful pasta dishes. Olympia makes eating out very easy and does so at prices that won’t make you think twice about reserving yourself a table here.


Pfefferkorns is a name that you will see all over Lech; with their range of hotels, hire shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants they really are everywhere but where the food is concerned both the more relaxed s’Pfefferkorndl or the fine dining Pfeffermuhle are great spots to go in the evening for a meal. Here you are spoilt for choice, with a varied menu including a build your own pizza section and the always popular Pfefferkorn burger but also a range of more traditional dishes such as the Kasespatzle, a very filling very cheesy noodle dish with fried onions to top and usually served with a side salad.

Ambrosius is another classic Austrian restaurant. It is a perfect choice for those of you looking to round off your Austrian holiday with a very Austrian dining experience in an excellent setting, overlooking the centre of town.
Serving a mix of local specialities like Tiroler Grostl and Kasespatzle as well as classic Viennese cuisine like the ever famous Wiener Schnitzel, Ambrosius is always a very popular choice.

Even harder to get into than Schneggarei, Hus Nr. 8 is one of the most exclusive restaurants in Lech and is usually booked up weeks or even months in advance! But for those who do book early enough, the pre-planning is well worth while. Similar to Schneggarei in its traditional hearty Austrian menu and the friendly inviting atmosphere Hus Nr 8 really is a very enjoyable dining experience.

Of course there are many more restaurants than this but just to name a few and get you looking forward to your holiday for more reasons than the great snow conditions and fantastic skiing on offer in Lech.
