from Reutte to Steeg

Cycling in the realm of the last savage. You can do this if you choose the Lechradweg, which leads from Reutte to Steeg. On the one hand, this runs on meadows and field paths through agricultural land. On the other hand, you can also discover the last wild river landscape of the Northern Alps by bike. This gives you the unique opportunity to cycle through the heart of the Tyrolean Lech Nature Park, passing through floodplain forests and along gravel banks.

Another highlight of the Lech Cycle Path is also the Klimmbrücke Nature Park House. This is located in the middle of the Lechradweg in Elmen and provides comprehensive information on the Tiroler Lech Nature Park.
