3. Stand on top of the mountains
While we're on the subject of high-altitude fun, a trip on the Valluga cable car is a must while in the Arlberg region. It takes you straight to the top of the Valluga mountain where you (together with a guide) get an unforgettable vista of the Austrian, Swiss, and Italian Alps. Stay for a meal at Valluga View, a panoramic restaurant where you can linger and count the peaks that tower over 9,800 feet - there is plenty to discover.
4. Get the Lech makeover
The streets and slopes of the Arlberg are a bit of a fashion show. This season's latest ski wear and apres-ski outfits are on display not just on your fellow visitors, but in the shop windows of Lech. There, you will find everything you need to give your winter wardrobe the Arlberg upgrade. Start with Sagmeister and Strolz, two local institutions that cater to international tastes.
