The Landhaus Bischof is located in the best ski area in the world. As confirmed by independent juries, it is the largest contiguous ski area in Austria and one of the fifth largest in the world. Ski Arlberg has been given countless awards. In the winter of 2017 Ski Arlberg won the international World Snow Award for the ski resort of the year.
Lech is one of the best of the Alps – the club of the best twelve destinations. Oberlech, the location of Landhaus Bischof, is part of this exclusive mountain village club. Oberlech – English: Upper Lech – offers its guests in winter the luxury of a car-free area. A place which still is today exactly how it has always been – located in the middle of a deeply snow-covered dream landscape.
We live in one of the most snow-reliable regions of the Alps. Once you have entered the Arlberg ski area there is no need to remove your skis anymore: The other side of the Arlberg – St. Anton, St. Christoph and Stuben – can be reached by cable car from the Zürs (Flexbahn), as well as the deep snow paradise Warth-Schröcken (Auenfeldjet). It is a huge ski area with hundreds of kilometers of ski runs for both beginners and professionals. The skiing fun starts right at our front door. In the evenings, you can just swing by the Landhaus Bischof – no additional travel time, no waiting for the next bus, no wading through the snow, no skis to carry after a day on the slopes. We call this ski-in/ski-out

The White Ring
One of our apartments overlooks the slopes of the Madlochs. The Madloch-run, one of the most challenging and beautiful slopes of the Arlberg region, is part of the White Ring – a legendary downhill skiing course on the Arlberg which many consider to be the longest in the world. Anyone who follows the White Ring makes a panoramic tour around Lech and Zürs on skis.
