The Reutte Nature Park Region is located between the Allgäu Alps and the Ammergau Alps. It offers families with children a wide range of walking and hiking options – for example, up to the ruins of Ehrenberg Castle and to the "highline 179" hanging footbridge.
The area south of Reutte is characterised by easy but beautiful walks and hikes. Some of the best include the Ehrenberg Loop, a 15km circular trail starting at the Riedener See lake near Weißenbach am Lech and leading to the ruins of the medieval Ehrenberg Castle and back again. En route walkers will pass over the highline 179, a hanging footbridge measuring 406 metres in length and dangling 114 metres above the ground. Bird lovers can explore the Bird Experience Trail in Pflach, a settlement north of Reutte within the borders of the Lech Valley Natur Park. Advanced and expert hikers can take on the circular trail leading up onto the 2,000m ridge Hahnenkamm ridge above Reutte. The ridge is also easily accessible using a cable car from Höfen. On clear days you can see as far as the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain. The region is also home to a number of mountain lakes such as the Plansee and the Heiterwanger See east of Reutte.
