Over a distance of 125 km, the river Lech accompanies hikers from its source close to the Formarinsee lake in Lech to the Lechfall in Füssen in the Allgäu. The trail links five regions and two states, all with their own traditions and stories to tell. The Lechweg promises you one thing. It is an easy long-distance hiking trail through the Alps and one of the last wild river landscapes in Europe – a way to yourself!
