Naturepark Lechtal

All locals in this stunning Tyrolean valley are especially proud of their Tyrolean traditions which have been an important part of daily life for many generations. The 8 towns and 6 typical alpine villages are happy to welcome guests with genuine Tyrolean hospitality: Bach, Elbigenalp, Elmen, Forchach, Gramais, Häselgehr, Hinterhornbach, Holzgau, Kaisers, Pfafflar, Stanzach, Steeg and Vorderhornbach. The Lechtal valley, which is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Alps, has maintained exceptional biodiversity due to the respect for the natural environment by the locals. The river Lech has a wide sandy or gravel riverbed and is considered to be one of the last wild river landscapes in Europe.

 

With more than 1.160 varieties of flowers to discover, the fascinating landscape nestled between the rugged Allgäu and Lachtal Alps is a wonderful holiday destination for all hiking enthusiasts and nature lovers. Explore the area on the many marked hiking trails, such as the hike through the "Hölltalschlucht" (transl. hell-valley-gorge), to the Modertalbach waterfall, or the 125 kilometre Lechweg hiking trail. For a very close encounter with the lovely Lech river and all its natural streams, try rafting or canyoning for an exciting adventure.

 

For all winter guests who would like to enjoy the snowy landscape away from the ski slopes, this area is ideal for snowshoe-walking. The Gibler Alm and the Bernhardseckhütte are very popular destinations for snowshoe-walkers. Another popular winter sport is cross-country skiing, which allows you to go explore along the groomed trails at your own pace. For all skiers, Lechtal has numerous ski resorts which are suited perfectly for your family ski holiday.

 

Apart from the stunning nature, another fantastic feature of the Lechtal holiday region are the cultural highlights this area has to offer. One of the most important traditions in the Lechtal region are the facade paintings called "Lüftlmalerei", which date back to the 18th century. Especially the village of Holzgau is known to have stunning paintings keeping to this tradition. The paintings depict stories from the bible as well as honour the daily life of the farming community. The village of Elbigenalp, which is known to be the cultural centre of the Lechtal valley, maintains many traditional handicrafts and has lots of buildings with historical fresco- and stucco art decorating the village. The only wood-carving school in Austria is located here and was established in 1951. In July 2015 the "Wunderkammer Elbigenalp" opened its doors for everyone to marvel at the art collection and other curiosities collected by the lithographer Johann Anton Falger. In addition, this village was home of the artist Anna Stainer-Knittel, who is famous for being "Geierwally".
