Welcome to Zürs

Zürs

One of the world's top holiday resort destinations with guaranteed good snow and a very traditional atmosphere, Zürs is a quiet, exclusive haven in Austria's Arlberg Mountain Range, just 10 minutes from St. Anton. Often paired and associated with nearby Lech, Zürs is more exclusive with a number of four and five star hotels to accommodate visitors, of whom many are royalty and celebrities, in style and comfort. This resort is surrounded by truly spectacular scenery and is a refreshing antidote to the massive resorts.


Information & Facts

Activities

In the general area, including Lech, it is possible to go snowshoeing, sledding, hiking, ice skating and even play tennis or squash.

Language
The official language in Austria is German.
Money

The unit of currency is the Euro (EUR), which is divided into 100 cents. Currency can be exchanged at banks and bureaux de change available in all towns, but it may be easier to use the ATMs. Banks are closed on Saturdays and Sundays, but exchange offices at airports and major city rail terminals are open seven days a week. Major credit and debit cards are widely accepted though some small hotels and restaurants may only accept cash. Travellers cheques are also accepted.

Negatives

Zürs is very exclusive and therefore very expensive.

Nightlife

There is not too much to do après ski with only a small disco open at the Edelweiss hotel and perhaps the most popular venue Vernissage at the ski club Alpenrose. A holiday in Zürs is more about being focused on quieter, private evenings, and early mornings back on the slopes.

Restaurants

There are some great restaurant choices for visitors on holiday in Zürs, although price tags are quite high and some do not accept credit cards. Zürserhof is one of the best and reservations are essential during peak season; Hotel Lorunser serves some of the best food in Zürs, but is only open to hotel guests. The restaurant at the Hotel Hirlanda serves excellent Austrian food, and Restaurant Chesa has modern European fare.

Shopping

Holidaymakers will find that the shopping at Zürs is not as good as at Lech and nearby St. Anton although all skiing needs are easily taken care of.

Time
Local time in Austria is GMT +1 (GMT +2 from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October).
