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.

Coming from Bad Faulenbach over the country, we crossed the Lech below the Lechfälle. 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 in the east, offers the about 500 meters south branching and running parallel above the busy Tiroler, Schwangauer and Füssener roads panorama way. The trail is waiting with some exposed spots that allow a great view of Füssen.

Shortly before Füssen falls Lechfall waterfall a 1784 built, stepped weir down. The stowage above above is now fully zusedimentiert. After that, the river squeezes itself through a gorge-like constriction, which, after a horseshoe-shaped rock recess above the wall, is itself referred to as Mangtritt. Near Füssen the Lech reaches the Alpine foothills and flows into the Forggensee, the largest German reservoir.
