In 1967 Jakob Berger and his wife Theresa who was born in the neighbouring “Klostertal” valley built a house on the “Burgplateau” (castle plateau) in Upper Lech. They began renting rooms to guests. Today Theresa’s son Martin runs the guesthouse.

Tradition, individuality and comfort are very important to us. In our lounge where we serve breakfast and dinner, we have an old, green-painted cabinet that dates from 1827. The ceiling in our lounge is from an old Alpine farmhouse. It is made of spruce wood and dates back to 1740. In the lounge you will also find the “heirloom of the family”. This is how Martin’s mother Theresa calls the old “Montafoner Tisch” (handcrafted table from the Montafon valley).

Her great-grandfather had the table built in 1814, it was a wedding gift. Next to it is an old, tiled stove which warms comfortably during cold winter nights.

We use “revitalised water” – so-called “Grander water” – in our guesthouse including all our rooms and bathrooms. The water is softer because it is free of magnetism and and electromagnetic pollution, using a biological process that was invented by the Tyrolean Johann Grander. The coffee, especially espresso, tastes soft and harmonic and is more intense in taste.

The “Pension Berger” is connected to Oberlech’s district heating network. The plant uses wood pellets from local forests.
