The Lechweg path – from the spring to the falls

From Lech to Füssen

Explore one of Europe's last remaining wild river landscapes. The Lech flows around 125km from its source near the Formarinsee lake down to the Lechfall waterfall in Füssen, Allgäu. As you hike along the river, you will pass one of the largest colonies of ibex in Europe, cross the longest hanging pedestrian bridge in Austria and see the Bavarian royal castles – a truly unique outdoor experience.

Hike The Lechweg path – from the source to the falls
Distance 24 km
Altitude variation 2000 m

In contrast to many other Alpine climbs, the Lechweg path is designed to offer a medium-difficulty hike for which no Alpine hiking experience is required. You can tackle the stages in any order to complete a certain number of kilometres each day.

Take a look at the four-star Hotel Tannbergerhof! As you pass through Lech am Arlberg, you might like to call in to the Tannbergerhof to enjoy a pleasant break on the hotel's sun terrace!

Our Tannbergerhof tip: the Formarinsee is a beautiful mountain lake where you can (with a valid fishing pass from the Lech Zürs Tourismus information centre) enjoy a peaceful fishing expedition!

The Green Ring – a secret path of stories

This route is not just for nature enthusiasts, but also for those with an interest in culture. Children find this hike exciting too, as there are many mysterious and exciting adventures concealed along the way, just waiting to be discovered.

The Green Ring is the counterpart to the White Ring in winter, and both begin at the Rüfikopf!

The Tannberg – on the trail of the Walser peoples

This themed hike leads through the three Walser municipalities of Warth, Schröcken and Lech, following in the footsteps of the Walser people with 57 discovery stations sharing old Walser tales and 700-year-old Walser houses dotted across the beautiful mountain landscape. An absolute must for culture enthusiasts. The hike over the Tannberg can be divided into three separate routes:

Across the Wöstertäli to the waterfall

This family-friendly hike gives you the opportunity to get out of the sun on those hot summer days. The path leads through the Anger district and then up the mountain through the cool, shady forest as far as the refreshing Walkerbach stream. From there you can cross the pedestrian bridge and then take a short break at the Täli Alpine hut before continuing on to the waterfall.

Hike Across the Wöstertäli to the waterfall
Distance 4 km
Altitude variation 403 m

Our tip: the perfect place to stop for a break is your four-star Hotel Tannbergerhof!

Your hiking recommendation from Mr. Pfefferkorn: The Gipslöcher!

The Gipslöcher formation is a real spectacle of nature – the cave looks like the empty half of an eggshell. It is a gorgeous hike to the Gipslöcher via Oberlech and around the Karhorn to Bodenalpe Bürstegg. Bürstegg was formerly the highest Walser settlement in Vorarlberg – a particularly rewarding hiking destination and easy to get to!

You might like to combine your hike with a visit to the Schottenhof farm to see their shaggy-looking Scottish highland cattle. These animals are very important to the high Alps as they eat the grass in areas where farming machinery cannot go. Their weight helps to compact the ground and prevent avalanches during the winter.

Our tip: the Schottenhof is well worth a visit in either summer or winter!

The European watershed at the Flexen Pass:

the European watershed is located at an altitude of 1,773m, between the Danube, the Black Sea, the Rhine and the North Sea. The Flexen Pass connects the back of the Klostertal with the Lech valley at the highest point.

It is an astonishing natural masterpiece that reminds us that, in the end, we are all one – even if we see ourselves as separate and want to call ourselves individuals. Visit the European watershed at the Flexen Pass.

Our tip: a hike to the Flexen Pass is an equally attractive option for your winter holiday at the four-star Hotel Tannbergerhof!
