Horse-drawn sleigh rides in Austria

A gentle ringing and the sound of snow crunching underneath the runners: a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride is always a special event, day or night.

It was Josef Walch senior who started the horse-drawn sleigh rides, using his own carriage to transport guests from Lech to dine in the old inn in Zug, and back again. This special service was so well-received that more and more guests wanted to come along and enjoy the pleasure of a ride through the snowy Zug valley.

A horse-drawn carriage ride – using carriages from Lech am Arlberg these days – is still one of the romantic highlights of a winter holiday in Zug/Lech.
