Let yourself be inspired by the rushing Lech water and drift along to the unique habitats of the wild river.
Fascinated by the wildness, diversity and beauty of the nature park, the podcast is a journey along the Lech. In pictorial language, it conveys impressions, encourages dreaming and reflection, and incidentally also expands the body of knowledge about the Tiroler Lech Nature Park.
Clear, cold mountain water gushes out of small springs, takes its course and soon becomes a raging torrent. This episode tells of the idyllic origin of one of the last wild Alpine rivers and leads into the mountain world of the Northern Limestone Alps.
The luminous turquoise of the Lech, which looks like it has been worked on in many postcards, is truly captivatingly beautiful! This luminous blue has its reasons, which this episode reveals, diving into the play of shapes and colours of the river water.
The different water masses of the Lech constantly transform the banks. The water washes material in and carries it away again, deforms and shapes... With its dynamics, the river is a real landscape artist.
The episode is about these habitats and invites you to linger for a short time in thought on the banks of the Lech and also to marvel at the diversity of the stones.
The gravel banks are the heart of a wild river; in straightened rivers they hardly exist any more. Yet they are important and very special habitats to which survival artists have adapted. This episode tells of life under extreme conditions.
The water of the Lech does not only come from its source, the Lech spring area, but also flows in from all the numerous side valleys of the Lechtal and Allgäu Alps. Viewed from above, the Lech as the main axis with its many side tributaries is a large river network.
This episode takes us into one of the side valleys - illuminated by the setting evening sun.
Riparian forests are part of an intact river landscape, are characterised by flooding and change and are full of life!
This episode introduces the different types of riparian forest and shows the important role they play in a river landscape.
Fountain with water? No, not quite. Well waters are small flowing waters away from the main stream that serve as nurseries for numerous animals. Here, the young animals can develop until they are ready for wild life.
