Cradled amidst the Austrian Alps, the town of Lech is home to world-famous locales for winter sports and, of course, incomparable views of the mountainous surroundings. The town also features some of Europe’s oldest churches, incredible museums, and philosophical conventions and symposiums like no other. Of course, the ideal journey at Lech includes a stay at Hotel & Chalet Aurelio, the luxury hotel for creating memorable moments.
Committed to fulfil all their guests’ wishes, the service at Aurelio is unparalleled, with 24 hour concierge services, luxury shopping trips, helicopter transport, golfing experiences and a unique set of Alpaca-related activities, in which guests can interact, mount and even enjoy yoga sessions with the fluffy animals.

The eighteen exclusive rooms all offer spacious chambers and a combination of modern elegance and alpine charm. The Top Deluxe Double Rooms offers mountain views, a balcony, multimedia centre, a bathtub and a rainfall shower in the bathroom. The Aurelio Suite, with 110 square metres, features special details and design elements, as well as a separate bedroom, living room, a balcony with views to the mountains and a bathtub and shower in the bathroom.
