Tiroler Lech Nature Park

Lech is one of the last wild rivers in Central Europe and dominates the landscape of the Nature Park. Insights into the different habitats and vegetation types are offered over a total surface area of 40 square kilometres.

Untamed in parts, the Lech is one of the last wild rivers of the northern Alps to carve its way through the Lechtal Valley. It has left its mark on the landscapes in the form of wild and extensive floodplains.  Together with the mountains of Allgäu and the Lechtal Alps, this “Central European jungle” dominates the character of the Nature Park. Many plants and animals have found the perfect environment here – from barren to lush, from dry to wet.  The biodiversity is nigh on endless, 1,116 plant species alone thrive here and the animal world is represented by rare specimens of stone crayfish, amphibians and koppen (small fish).  Nature lovers, sports enthusiasts and those looking for rest and relaxation are amongst those that find themselves particularly drawn to Tiroler Lech Nature Park.

Lechweg Trail

This long distance trail follows the river from its source near Lake Formarinsee to its waterfalls in Allgäu. Even though 125 kilometres could not be described as a “walk in the park”, the long distance trail is relatively easy to negotiate and can be walked in easy stages.

Open your eyes: Alpine flowers do not compete for your attention with large blooms, their beauty is often concealed in hidden corners along the wayside. Jöchelspitze Botanical Nature Trail helps you to discover and recognise them.
