New York. London. Lech.
Yellow cabs, black cabs or white cabs – everywhere that’s somewhere boasts its own distinctive taxis. Characteristic of Lech and Zürs are three R-Class Merce-des, 20 VW Caravelles and two Mercedes Sprinters. To ensure your safety we use 4 wheel drive vehicles and snow chains. That way we can ensure your transfer to Lech even in the most wintry conditions when many a standard airport taxi gets stuck in the snow en route. That is why Der Lecher is the best choice. We bring you safely and reliably to your destination: from the railway station or the airport to your hotel, from your hotel to the ski slopes or to the après ski bars – and back again. 24 hours a day! No matter what the weather.
Der Lecher Roadcam – the first mobile webcam on the Arlberg
The very first mobile webcam on the Arlberg has been installed in one of our taxis. The “The Lecher Roadcam” provides a variety of fascinating images, for instance it is now possible to monitor road conditions, check the weather and even scrutinise the snow levels. You will gain many new and captivating impressions of the spectacular alpine panorama here in Lech.
A class of its own!
“Der Lecher” is a taxi business serving Lech am Arlberg. And just like Lech itself: it’s in a class of its own. Anyone visiting Lech is justified in expecting more from his/her holidays: more time, more space. And anyone travelling with us can sit back in comfort. We offer our passengers a number of advantages: more service, more comfort. And we offer this 365 days a year.
An impressive road to Lech
The construction of the Flexen Road at the end of the 19th century was one of the greatest feats of engineering of its time. Back then, no-one could have imagined that a few decades later, it would become a major tourist route. Even today, the Flexen Road is still the only access to Lech and Zürs during winter.
During the 19th century, locals had to contend with an arduous trudge up a narrow mule track. The construction of the Flexen Road, therefore, considerably improved the quality of life for the inhabitants of Lech. From then on, the narrow road could be travelled using horse and sleigh. It was many years before the first motorised vehicles made their intrepid way along the road to Lech. The second major construction phase took place in the 1950s, giving the Flexen Road the appearance that it has today.
