The Lechweg Experience
Hiking from the source of the Lech river to where it falls. The Lechweg, building the charms of the countryside into its overall concept, not only kindles the enthusiasm of fans of hiking, day in, day out – it also made a compelling case to the European Ramblersꞌ Association jury. We are proud that the Lechweg has now been awarded the "Leading Quality Trails - Best of Europe" distinction. This is an honour that the Lech, as one of Europeꞌs last wild-river landscapes, not only fought hard for but has also truly deserved.
From one stage to the next, the Lechweg and the three regions of two countries that are associated with it, present themselves from their most beautiful aspects. Hike in the footsteps of the Romans, of the ꞌSwabian childrenꞌ and of the raftsmen of former eras; let the tranquility take effect; savour the magic of the Lech; discover the great variety of flora and fauna; with a bit of luck, you will also see whole colonies of Alpine ibexes, as well as the many localities and vantage points that are worth seeing and that the Lechweg’s various sections offer.
