A 4-star hotel located in Oberlech and perched right on the slopes, the Goldener Berg Hotel is a great choice for those who yearn for some peace and quiet, and are not concerned about being in the center of action in Lech. Although the hotel structure dates back to 1430’s, it was in 1928 that the history of the Goldener Berg Hotel began. Throughout the years, the ownership of the hotel changed hands until 1965 when the Pfefferkorn’s, an old Lech family, took over the hotel. Today, the hotel is run by Daniela Pfefferkorn.

The hotel has 40 rooms ranging from single room Flühen to chalet suites. Starting at 25m2 for a single room, they’re ample in size and balconies on most rooms add even more sense of space. Most of the rooms are done with a simple contemporary style with splashes of bright colors, a variety of fabrics and finished with lots of wood, making the rooms feel fresh, light, sunny and airy. They’re not overly luxurious, but certainly nice. Some of the small single rooms are rooms are unrenovated.

The hotel has four restaurants where you can enjoy your half-board meals. Its main restaurant which is for fine dining, the barbeque terrace is where you can savor grilled barbeques while enjoying a panoramic view, the Dirndlstübli parlor is the place to dine if you are craving for Austrian cuisine and specialties, and Scout’s favorite the Johannestubli which has been awarded by the famous GaultMillau restaurant guide for its superb cuisine. If you have opted for the half-board rate, you can actually “dine around” in any of the four restaurants located in the hotel as well as two in Lech which have a partnership with the hotel. The hotel has a lobby bar area which was recently refurbished in a modern alpine style and is a great place to relax, catch up with your reading, or have a chat with some of the guests.

The Goldener Berg’s wellness area is fully equipped with saunas and steam baths, indoor pool and outdoor whirlpool, fitness and gym, and a relaxation area.

The hotel caters well to younger guests. It has its own kid’s club, where children from 3 year old and older can enjoy their own activities (indoor and outdoor) supervised by kindergarten teachers. They also provide other great amenities, such as baby monitors which you can leave with reception while you dine at the restaurant, ensuring that you can sit back and relax, knowing that your little one is safe.

Although the hotel is set in a very beautiful spot up on the slopes of Oberlech, it will require you to use a cable car to enjoy the numerous bars and restaurants in the town of Lech. You can’t drive your car to the hotel but there are parking areas in Lech where you can leave your car.  Depending on wait times, it takes you a total of about 20 minutes to the main street of Lech by the cable car. This might be a negative for some people but if you want a peaceful and quiet vacation, away from the busy main street, you just found your paradise in Goldener Berg Hotel.

Who should stay here

The hotel is ideal for families who will love the hotel’s children facilities and for older couples who are not particularly concerned about the party scene in Lech
