The traditional village has maintained all of its colourful character while also embracing modern developments to provide fabulous tourist facilities. According to the season, Lech can be a flower filled wonderland or a snow covered paradise and always offers an exciting array of activities whatever the weather.
Hike the Luscious Lech Trail
Appreciate the astounding natural landscape of the Lechweg, a wild and wonderful trail of sparkling rivers and rugged rocks. During this inspiring adventure, walkers will wander amongst reflective lakes, sapphire streams; undulating hills and snow-capped mountain ranges. Stop at an authentic alpine hut to re-energise with a sweet tea and regional speciality snack.
In winter, Lech transforms into an icy and inspiring Mecca of snow-covered slopes and adventurous winter sports. The magnificently mountainous terrain means skier can enjoy gravity defying slopes and astounding alpine vistas. Toboggan runs and romantic horse drawn sleigh rides provide an alternative to the adrenaline-fuelled adventures on offer.
A Gourmet Paradise
With their warm alpine ambience and dynamic approach to food, Lech’s selection of gourmet restaurants is guaranteed to delight even the most discerning palate. Regional specialties include rich venison steaks and indulgent cheese fondue, both of which can be enjoyed in their finest form at Alpenblick, an traditional mountain hut whose rustic décor and antique furniture evokes the region’s rich culinary heritage.
