Hotel Austria Lech (Home) 4 Sterne



Up and at 'em

We also place great emphasis on doing things together, which is why, starting in the summer of 2010, we're organising a hiking group along with three neighbouring hotels. This joint effort means that our guests have a choice of two different guided hikes every day, for example like these:

> Lech – Gstüatalpe – Spullersee
From the Omesberg in Lech to the Gstüatalpe. Via the Stierloch up to the Ravensburger Hütte (hut) and return with the hiking bus from the Spullersee. Easy hike, approx. 3.5 hrs.

> Rüfikopf – Stuttgarter Hütte
Go up the mountain with the Rüfikopf cable car and via the Rauhekopf-scharte to the Stuttgarter Hütte (hut - 2310 m). Go via the Trittalpe and the Güterweg to Zürs to finish. Return using the Postbus. Intermediate hike, approx 4 hrs.

> Oberlech – Körbersee – Hochtannberg
Go up the mountain with the Lech-Oberlech cable car or the local and hiking bus. Via the Gaisbühelalpe – Auenfelder to the Körbersee and carry on to Hochkrumbach. From there, return to Lech with the local bus. Easy hike, approx. 3.5 hrs

Hiking means discovering and getting to know your surroundings...
