Below the waterfall, the river narrows and enters the Lechschlucht, which the Lech dug into the rock over millennia. The Lechschlucht is the only one in the entire Bavarian Alpine region, through which a larger Alpine river can still flow freely and unhindered by human hands.

Shortly before Füssen, the Lech falls like a waterfall in a cascading weir built from 1784. The stowage above is now completely sedimented. Afterwards, the river squeezes through a gorge-like narrow point, which, after a horseshoe-shaped rock depression above the wall, is also referred to as the Mang Kick. At Füssen the Lech reaches the foothills of the Alps and flows into the Forggensee, the largest reservoir in Germany.

Coming from Bad Faulenbach via the Ländeweg, we crossed the Lech below the Lech Falls. The bridge position is very well chosen and allows a clear view of the impressive upper and lower reaches of the Lech at this point.
As a tip for a tour supplement, coming from the Lechfall and following the Tiroler Straße to the east, the panorama path that branches off after approx. 500 meters to the south and runs parallel to the busy Tiroler, Schwangauer and Füssener Straße is a good option. The path comes up with some exposed places that allow a great view of Füssen.
