Rote Wand Gourmet Hotel
Rote Wand Gourmet Hotel
Zug, Lech am Arlberg, Austria

The Rote Wand started life as a simple farmhouse in Zug in the mid 17th century. In the 1950s, its owners, the Walchs, turned it into a cafe and guest house: people came from neighbouring Lech for Burgi’s legendary apple strudel and shredded pancakes; while Josef, a ski instructor, brought his guests from by horse-drawn sleigh for fondue, which often turned into dancing in the cellar bar. Now with their son Joschi at the helm, the Rote Wand has evolved into one of the best hotels at the Arlberg with a beautiful spa — but still with food and warm-hearted service at its core.
