Walking and hiking in Lech
Explore Lech am Arlberg on foot
The Lechweg - the journey begins at the Hotel Schranz
The Lechweg is a unique long-distance hiking trail through one of the last wild river landscapes in Europe. Always accompanied by the soothing murmur of the Lechbach, you hike from the source near the Formarinsee in Lech am Arlberg in Vorarlberg to the Lechfall in Füssen in the Allgäu. On the way along the magical turquoise river there is a flora and fauna to be discovered that is unique with one of the largest ibex colonies in Europe, numerous breeding bird species and wild, rare orchid species.
We at the Hotel Schranz, a certified partner hotel of the Lechweg, are specially geared to the needs of Lechweg hikers and are happy to provide you with advice and assistance. The Hotel Schranz in Lech am Arlberg is the ideal starting point for the first two stages of the Lechweg. In combination with a Lech loop or a jump into the crystal-clear water of the Lech while canyoning, you can start your journey in an atmospheric way, with pleasant comfort and our warm hospitality.
Picnics in the mountains
No good hike would be complete without a hearty picnic. We will be happy to make a packed lunch with the things you want for your al fresco dining experience in the mountains. Speak to a member of staff at reception for more details.
