Snowy mountain peaks close enough to touch
At the heart of the largest ski resort in Austria, the Arlberg, lies Hotel Bergkristall in Oberlech. Oberlech stands 1,630 m above sea level, so it’s free from fog even in winter. The sun shines more often and for longer on this sunny plateau than in the valley. Oberlech is a veritable El Dorado for fans of the sun.
Oberlech is free of cars. From the centre of Lech, you can access Hotel Bergkristall with the Oberlech Bergbahn. Winter sport lovers and walkers are in charge on the wintry paths around the hotel. While your car enjoys a holiday in the parking garage, you can begin to slow down as soon as you arrive on our sunny plateau.
The pistes go right past the hotel. Out of the ski shed, onto the slopes. The beginning of an eventful day at the Hotel Bergkristall in Oberlech. Long-distance winter walks start just outside the hotel.
230 years of family tradition as hoteliers
The hotelier family, Jakob and Renate Wrann, is the 8th generation in the hotel and service industry. Generation number nine, is already in the starting blocks and is currently working with her parents.
It’s no surprise that a sense of what guests need and experience in service is in their blood.
Pleasant colours and design with good taste
The Hotel Bergkristall is not just a meeting place for winter sport lovers, it’s also a place for those who enjoy good taste.
The white, grey and beige colours in the lobby, rooms and restaurant set the tone. We deliberately avoid bright colours. The tone-in-tone ambience effectively highlights the changing colours of the snow and sun in all their facets, from the morning light to the red evening glow.
Perfectly harmonised textiles for the curtains, carpets and cushions together with artistic plant arrangements ensure a cosy feeling of well-being. Wonderful art deco details give the hotel a special something.
Employees who live to serve
We focus very highly on quality when it comes to hiring our employees as well. Our team is distinguished by a desire to serve, technical knowledge and friendliness. With constant training programmes, we ensure that we maintain and increase this standard.
Many of our employees have been with us for many years now so they already know the specific wishes of our regular guests.
Our philosophy is: every guest should enjoy his or her holiday with us to the fullest. Because a happy guest will come back and recommend us to friends.
Seehotel Europa in Velden am Wörthersee - Our hotel for your summer holiday
We shut the doors to our hotel in Oberlech when the snow disappears from the mountains and the first blades of grass start to peek through.
During the summer season, we run our Seehotel Europa in Velden. Seehotel Europa is where the spirit of Hotel Bergkristall has its summer home. In a very similar ambience and with largely the same team, we offer our guests top-quality holidays.
Visit us in Velden too. Enjoy sunny days on the banks of the Wörthersee. Relax in our panoramic indoor poor and our lake sauna. Treat yourself to our culinary delights.
From April until October we are in our summer holiday destination Velden, Seehotel Europa. After a short break we start into the winter season in December where we enjoy the winter in the mountains until April.
