How do the animals get through the winter? Which animals are active and who sleeps through the cold season? Together with our nature guides, we go in search of tracks.

Welcome to the Nature Park
Tyrolean Lech!

The last wild river landscape in the northern Alpine region.

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

The Tyrolean Lech is unmistakable! It is the Last wild river in the northern Alpine region and, as an alpine wild river, 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 deposited to form mighty gravel banks. What is truly constant is constant change. Vast alluvial forests, clear spring lakes and the mountains of the Allgäu and Lechtal Alps are among the most beautiful and primeval landscapes in the Alps. Discover the treasures of our nature and our culture.

They offer a unique and special diversity of landscapes, which are characterised by an interesting wealth of animal and plant species as well as significant biotic communities. In addition to natural landscapes, cultural landscapes that have been shaped by the interaction of man and nature over time are maintained and preserved.

The Tyrolean Lech Nature Park is a piece of breathtaking nature with impressive landscapes and invites you to relax and discover. Let yourself be enchanted by the beauty of the wild river landscape and find peace and relaxation on a hike through the unique nature! The nature at the Tyrolean Lech is very valuable and under protection, therefore we ask you to act in an environmentally friendly and nature-friendly way and to take the following requests with you on your way:

carry in - carry out

Please do not leave waste in nature and dispose of your waste properly. In this way you contribute to intact ecosystems and food chains, free from contaminants such as pollutants, microplastics, etc.

Protection of animals and plants

Animals and plants are protected in the nature park. Therefore, please do not take any natural materials, animals, mushrooms and plants. This way, the diversity and natural beauty remains a pleasure for all area visitors.

Camping and storage

Please use the designated camping sites in Reutte, Vorderhornbach and Häselgehr. Camping of any kind is prohibited.

Nature without motors

Please observe all no-driving signs and avoid operating motorised vehicles off public roads. Use public transport if possible!

Lighting fires only in designated areas

Campfires are not allowed in the protected area. Open fires are a source of danger for people and nature, please use the designated barbecue areas available for this nature experience.

Dogs on a leash

Dogs must be kept on a leash throughout the protected area. Please thus avoid disturbing the endangered and protected nature, which dogs perceive as natural enemies.

Listening, not making noise

Enjoy the peace and soothing sounds of nature and avoid unnecessary noise. This way you show consideration for other recreationists and for wildlife.

Use marked paths

Please stay on the marked trails!

No flying machines

Flying over the protected area with aircraft such as drones is not permitted without an official exemption.

Please do not enter the gravel banks during the breeding season from the end of April to mid-August!
In this way, contribute to the protection of ground-nesting birds such as sandpipers and ringed plovers. People and dogs are among the biggest disturbance factors for the protected bird species.

Thank you very much!
