The Lech is a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts. It is navigable from Steeg to Weißenbach and entices you with its beauty and wilderness to adventure on the water.
White water sports are also much about the experience of nature. And in order to preserve this unique nature for all of us, please follow these instructions:
- You are in the middle of the most sensitive area of the nature park. Try to make your presence as undisturbed as possible. Do not leave any garbage, keep quiet and use only the official barbecue sites (see PDF download).
- Use only the entry and exit points noted on the plan (see download button below).
Disturbance to the riparian area should be kept to a minimum.
- Do not walk on the gravel banks (especially the central ones) .
Rare animal and plant species live here that depend on the untouched nature of these habitats. On the Tyrolean Lech, for example, the rare and endangered little ringed plover still finds one of its last breeding grounds.
- Do not shear across the bottom of the riverbed during fish spawning season (September to April).
The spawn is deposited by the fish on the bottom of the river and could be significantly damaged by shearing boats.
- Refrain from private rafting on the Lech.
From 01.05.-30.09. it is possible to book commercial rafting on the Lech. Other paddling is allowed all year round (both private and commercial).
- Adhere to the daytime restriction of 09:00 to 19:00.
Many wild animals depend on the silence at night and at dawn and dusk.
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 little ringed plovers. People and dogs are among the biggest disturbance factors for the protected bird species.
