Water fun in the Lechtal
The Lechtal valley is shaped by the Lech, one of Europe’s last wild rivers. The area along the Lech lends itself not only to wonderful hikes and to bike tours; you can also relax here in glorious surroundings and let your soul savour the moment at beautiful riverside spots, including extensive gravelly river-banks. The Lech is not suitable for swimming – however, at the shallow places you can freshen up without any problems and stretch out your legs into the cool water.
Fishing in the Lechtal:
The Lechtal valley has two areas of water for fish, at which fishing is permitted for our hotel guests. Both these areas of water are found in Stanzach (approx. 24 km from Holzgau).
The Lech at Stanzach:
Ideal for fly-fishing, a wide area in which the angler can wade from place to place very well.
The Namlosbach stream at Stanzach:
Initially easy to wade around; later on and upstream it is necessary to be very sure-footed and suitably careful. Width: approx. 8 – 10 m. This waterway features rapid and tranquil stretches, weirs, swirling or eddying basins of water, and hairpin-bends.
