Welcome to the Tiroler Lech Nature Park!

The Tiroler Lech Nature Park makes it easy for its visitors – everyone can immerse themselves into this special world – the last wild river landscape in the northern Alps -  without any strenuous uphill climbs.

The Tirolean Lech river is incomparable! It is the last wild river in the northern Alps and is still capable of doing what every alpine river used to be able to do a long time ago, which is to use its force to regulate and pave its own course.

Within its wide stream bed it repeatedly restages itself, with arms branching off and reuniting. Stones from its course create continuously changing and mighty gravel banks. Its only consistency is that it is continuously changing.

Wide floodplain forests, clear outlet lakes and the mountain world of the Allgäu and Lechtal Alps create one of the most beautiful and pristine landscapes of the Alps. Discover our nature’s and culture’s treasures.
