Have a game of golf on the 3-hole course in Lech
If you fancy a game of golf during your holiday, you can do so on Lech’s own golf course. The attractively designed 3-hole course at Lech am Arlberg Golf Academy is located in the heart of the village. Featuring a driving range, putting green and practice bunker, the course offers a great way to enhance your mountain holiday.
The Lech trail – follow the river Lech downstream from its source
The Lech trail, a long distance footpath extending from the source of the river to the Lech falls, enables you to experience an unrivalled variety of natural scenery, encounter local customs honed by the landscape and learn about the truly amazing history surrounding them. Walkers follow the river Lech for nearly 125 kilometres, from its source near the Formarin lake right through to the Lech falls in Füssen im Allgäu.
There is something very soothing about following the course of a river, and soon the pleasant rushing and babbling of the water will have you spellbound. The river’s turquoise colour also exerts a magic that is not easy to forget. The essential lifeblood of our region, and boasting a wide variety of flora and fauna, the Lech constitutes one of the last untamed river catchments in Europe.
Walking in the Tannberg region – a trip back into the past
The Tannberg area, which includes Lech, Warth and Schröcken, constitutes a unique mountain habitat. Full of diversity and contrast, and offering an atmosphere both stimulating and contemplative, the Tannberg is a place of unrivalled fascination. Easily accessible yet far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the region enjoys a benevolent high altitude climate just perfect for walking.
