The German airports come into focus when debating the best destination for skiing in Lermoos but Innsbruck still tends to be the best choice for this resort.
Innsbruck Airport is the closest and most convenient for Lermoos. Innsbruck has long been known as a popular destination for ski charter flights - especially from the northern European countries - but now the introduction of new lower-fare scheduled flights from major destinations like London has made it into a real option for those flying from further afield.
The route from Innsbruck follows the main Inn valley motorway up to the Silz turnoff onto the Mieminger plateau. The road then descends to Nassereith and takes the steep climb over the Fern pass. This route can be extremely crowded in high season or slow in bad weather.
Allgäu Airport, as it is also known, is building up a decent reputation for an arrival destination for the area north of Lake Constance and to the west of Munich. The winter months see a number of scheduled and chartered services aimed at the ski market. The driving route is simplicity, being motorway all the way down past Kempten before heading into Austria near Reutte.
Friedrichshafen Airport, as another one of the "new" destinations for winter charters and low-cost flights, is also a viable alternative for travellers heading to Lermoos. Car drivers should take the route across the southern part of Germany via Wangen and Kempten before dropping down into Austria and the Ausserfern at Reutte.
Munich Airport is another decent option for Lermoos, with the main route heading through the city itself and down to Garmisch on the motorway. At Garmisch, a smaller regional road leads past Grainau in the direction of Ehrwald and Lermoos.
Salzburg Airport is unlikely to be a popular choice for Lermoos but, because of the variety of charter flights offered in the winter, it may be the only option available. A shorter journey can be made via the local roads cutting across from the Salzburg-Munich motorway to the Munich-Garmisch motorway but the surest route is probably to drive to Innsbruck and then as described in the description above.
Zurich Airport is a popular airport for those arriving via scheduled flight, but a long journey to Lermoos. Probably the most sensible route would be via the Arlberg tunnel and Inn valley motorway to Imst and then over the Fern pass.
Lermoos lies on the Ausserfernbahn regional rail line which connects Kempten in Germany, Reutte in Austria and Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Germany. Connections are available from Innsbruck and Munich via Garmisch and from Friedrichshafen via Kempten.
The hotels in Lermoos are mostly clustered along the three main streets or in the central square around the church.
Most of the accommodation is within easy reach of one of the two lifts which leave the village centre at either end.
