an easy long distance hiking through an Alpine region which is also one of the last white water landscapes in Europe.
The Lechweg – from the source to the fall takes advantage of an Alpine setting to provide easy, long-distance hiking. At the same time, it is the first long-distance cross-border path that is certified under the common quality criteria of the European Ramblers' Association. Around 125 kilometres in length, the Lechweg takes you from the Formarinsee lake via Warth into the nature reserve area of Lechtal-Reutte and up to the Lechfall waterfall at Füssen im Allgäu. As a result, it links three regions and two countries, each with their own traditions and history.
Depending on your stamina and walking experience, you can tackle the path in between six and eight stages. It leads you past the largest herd of Alpine goats in Europe and unfrequented waterfalls, across the longest foot suspension bridge in Austria, through water meadows and fields right up to royal castles. Throughout the hike you are always surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Lechtal and Allgäu Alps. All your needs will be looked after both before and after each stage at hikers' accommodation certified according to their own quality criteria. You can access the start-points along the Lechweg via local short-distance public transport or a shuttle service. Your baggage can be conveniently transported from the end of one stage to the end of the next. Arrival is either by car or by the Deutsche Bahn railway and Postbus bus service.
