Anyone have ideas for 4 day side trip after 2 wks in Lech?

We are spending 10 days in Lech skiing as a family of 5 and looking for something else to do for 4 days (more skiing, food, cultural, maybe Italy or Switzerland) on our way back to Zurich to catch our flight home to Australia. When you have travelled as far as Australia to go skiing we don't mind taking an internal flight and so wondered about Zermatt, but it does sees a bit of a haul from Lech - and maybe there are better ideas such as Livigno for something different, or even Innsbruck or Saltzburg? Any ideas or thoughts are much appreciated.

As flying back from Zurich probably best to keep it simple.

Any ski resort in Switzerland is going to be a long haul from Lech by public transport and even getting back to Zurich from a Swiss resort will take the best of 3 hours

Internal flights probably longer than public transport with all the messing around. Livigno is really difficult to get to by public transport.

From Lech to Livigno it would take at best 5 hours with 6 changes. 5h30 and 4 changes.

Keep in mind there are regular direct Intercity services from Innsbruck to Zurich.

You could keep it simple and just choose another resort off the Innsbruck - Zurich intercity line.



My Personal favourite resort of all ( and also my familys) and we have done France, Switzerland, Italy

230km of interlinked pistes. No buses. Excellent lift system (always reinvesting in modern chairs and cable cars unlike St Anton). Makes St Anton/lech lift System look antiquated

Top apres ski.

Bit of messing around with buses and trains to get to Ischgl ( 2 changes and just under 3hrs) but getting to Zurich simply take the bus to Landeck and pick up the Innsbruck - Zurich intercity service.



Lots of reinvestment in the last few years

To Schruns takes a bus and a couple of trains from Lech in under 2hrs.

St Gallenkirch will require an additional change and just over 2hr

Schruns to Zurich only requires a bus and railjet service. Only takes 2h15

Use Austrian rail www.oebb.at for rail/bus solutions including to Zurich

If you choose Switzerland use Swiss rail www.sbb.ch to show rail/bus solutions
