The Lech River Trail (8 Days & 7 Nights)

  • Follow the Lech river on foot, one of the last truly wild alpine rivers
  • Hike through Austria's Arlberg and Tyrol to the Bavarian town of Füssen
  • Enjoy dramatic mountain views in the Tyroler-Lech Nature Park
  • Explore the Romantic fairy-tale castle of Neuschwanstein
  • Relax in the hotel spa and feast on delicious Apfelstrudel and Weisswurst
Follow the ‘Lechweg’, one of the last wild alpine river landscapes, from authentic alpine villages to the Lech falls in Füssen. The Lech River Trail has been designated the very first ‘Leading Quality Trail’ by the European Ramblers Association and is already a firm favourite long distance hike with Germans and Austrians alike. Wander well-maintained paths through the Lech valley and take in grandiose mountain and river views. Experience traditional alpine farming towns and villages and enjoy the peace and quiet of this lesser-known trail. Refuel at the end of the day with hearty local Austrian and Bavarian specialities like apple strudel, locally made cheeses, sausage and a refreshing beer
