High peaks, luscious alpine meadows, clear mountain lakes – nature is showing off in the Arlberg. Here, you can stroll around the picturesque Lake Formarinsee, discover one of the last wild river landscapes on our continent, find the largest Capricorn colony in Europe, marvel at rock formations that are millions of years old and let yourself be enchanted by stunning views of the beautiful mountain. This fantastic hiking region awaits you.

In this Collection, we introduce you to seven different day hikes in the Lech Zürs region. The beautiful village of Lech is an ideal base camp and a gateway to the region. Here, you will find various accommodation options to suit any budget. There are also blue hiking buses that take you directly to the respective starting points of each hike. Buses depart from the post office in Lech and you can use them for free with your Lech Card.

It is important that you wear sturdy shoes on all of the hikes. You should also come prepared for rain and shine as the weather can quickly turn in the mountains – so remember your rain jacket and sun protection. There is plenty of food available on all of the hiking routes, but you may still want to carry a few snacks and water. The rustic mountain huts offering regional cuisine make for an especially delicious lunch break. After a long day in the mountains, Lech has numerous restaurants to enjoy a hearty evening meal.

Exploring the spellbinding Alberg landscape at your own pace is a truly unforgettable experience.
