The Lechweg is a medium-difficult long-distance hiking trail through our Alpine region, which is also one of the last wild river landscapes in Europe. An untamed Lech, people shaped by the landscape and fabulous stories are waiting for you! The Lechweg connects five regions and two countries on more than 125 kilometres: Austria with the Vorarlberg Arlberg region and the Tyrolean nature park region Lechtal und Reutte, as well as the southern Allgäu in Germany. The Lech springs from its source near Lake Formarin in Vorarlberg and, after an exciting and untamed course, flows through beautiful regions into the Lechfall in Füssen in the Allgäu. The numerous stages lead past one of the largest Capricorn colonies in Europe, a waterfall that, as if by magic, drains and springs again every year, and over Austria’s longest free-of-charge pedestrian bridge. Not to be forgotten are at the end of the path the Bavarian royal palaces! Turquoise blue and crystal clear water, sanded rock slabs and small wooden bridges are a real treat for the eyes.
