Relais & Chateaux’s Post Lech is the smallest five-star hotel in Lech and has been run by the Moosbrugger family since 1937. With local antiques decorating its interiors and an overall rustic, alpine aesthetic (not to mention staff that is dressed in traditional Austrian garments), the property feels as authentically Austrian as it gets.

The 46 rooms, apartments and suites stay true to this old-fashioned aesthetic without being overwhelming, resulting in a cozy elegance that feels fresh and inviting. There are two types of accommodations: those in the original building, which feature wood-paneled walls, hand-painted bathroom tiles and rustic, country furniture including large beds with colorfully painted headboards and those in the newer wing, which have a more modern Alpine aesthetic, including stone fireplaces and terraces.

The new spa and wellness area, also in the newer wing, includes an indoor children’s pool, state-of-the-art sauna and steam facilities and one of the largest outdoor heated swimming pool, which is accessed via an indoor pool with a sliding glass door. In addition to the hotel’s renowned fine dining panorama restaurant, Postblick Stuben, which boasts a 14,000-bottle wine cellar, there are a number of more casual venues such as the Emostube, which serves fondue, and the Jagerstube, where classic Austrian comfort food like Wiener Schnitzel are served in a cozy hunting chalet-style room. Every afternoon tea is served by the fire in the library, which sits just past Bemelman’s Bar, named after American author Ludwig Bemelmans, who was a frequent guest until the 1950s and also has a bar named for him at the Carlyle Hotel in New York.

Who Should Stay

Couples, families with well-behaved children and anyone looking for an authentic Austrian boutique hotel.
