The river Lech long-distance footpath
"From the source to the falls"
Established in 2012, the Lech Path is a long-distance trail through a mountain area which rates as one of the last remaining virgin riverscapes in Europe. First and foremost, the Lech Path opens up an area of stunning alpine scenery to the intermediate long-distance walker. In addition, it is the first international long-distance footpath to be certified as fulfilling the general quality criteria of the European Walking Association (EWV). Starting from the Formarin lake near Lech am Arlberg, passing through Warth and continuing into the Lech valley and Reutte nature reserve regions, the Lech Path extends for 125 kilometres to the Lech falls in Füssen im Allgäu. It thus connects five holiday destinations and two countries, together with their respective traditions and history.
Depending on individual condition and experience, the trail can be divided into six to eight stages. Rafting and canyoning companies also offer the chance to cover some sections on the river Lech itself. The villages along the Lech Path have good public transport connections or shuttle service. Luggage transport can be arranged easily from one port of call to the next.
Our hotel makes the perfect starting point for this unique walking experience. We would be happy to help with any individual questions you may have regarding Lech Path.
