This tiny hamlet packs quite a punch, with beautiful scenery, access to one of the largest skiing areas in Austria and a wonderful alpine feeling. Its super snowy microclimate and high altitude means you can enjoy this exclusive resort throughout the whole season, with all hotels within easy walking distance of the lifts (some with ski-in/ski-out convenience). With fantastic restaurants, and great shopping at Strolz also available, you won't want for things to do in Zurs.
Zurs is part of the world-famous Arlberg region, where the sport of downhill skiing as we know it today was first developed. Renowned for its champion skiers, quality snow and endless runs, over 284km of pistes will keep you busy. We highly recommend Red 10 as one of the best runs in the resort; it's long and challenging and on a clear day you get some absolutely amazing views. The region's super snowy microclimate and high altitude means you can enjoy this exclusive resort throughout the whole season.
We carefully select our hotels visiting each property and researching it in great detail before ever sending a client. Our hotels are hand-picked for their unparalleled accommodation, cuisine and facilities as well as first-class service.
