Welcome to the nature park
Tiroler Lech!

The last wild river landscape in the northern Alpine region.

The Nature Park Tyrolean Lech,makes it easy for its visitors - without arduous ascents, everyone can immerse themselves here in a very special world - the last wild river landscape in the northern Alpine region.

The Tyrolean Lech is unmistakable! It is the last wild river in the northern Alps and, as an alpine wild river, it is still allowed to do over long stretches what every mountain river was allowed to do long ago - to spread out and shape its own course under its own power. In its wide riverbed it stages itself anew again and again. Branches of the river branch out and unite. Stones from its side valleys are constantly being redeposited to form mighty gravel banks. What is really constant is the constant change. Vast alluvial forests, clear spring lakes and the mountain world of the Allgäu and Lechtal Alps belong to the most beautiful and primeval landscapes of the Alps. Discover the treasures of our nature and our culture.
