Tips

  • Siggi

    The Lechfall is about twelve meters high, and the Lech falls here across its entire width. Very impressive, especially during high water.

    The narrowest point of the Lech offers a worth seeing "rushing"

    South of the old town of Füssen you can experience a special natural spectacle on the federal road B 17 (Tiroler Straße). There, the Lech pours into a narrow gorge via a dam built in the 18th century. You have a good view from the new viewing platform on the east bank or directly from the Maxsteg, which spans the waterfall.

    It is a natural spectacle when the Lech falls down in steps over its entire width of about twelve meters.

    You should visit the Lechfall, just because of the colors.

    The inlet for the Forggensee. Lots of water and impressive, especially when the snow melts.

    Absolutely worth seeing. Unfortunately, the platform
    often a lot to overload.

    The Lechfall can only be easily reached by bike via the Tyrolean road on its east side. On the west side, you can drive up to about 100 meters from the fall via the country road, but the bike must then carry / push the rest of the route, which has been expanded as a staircase, up to King Max Steg.

    The Lechfall is located on the southern edge of a short but deeply cut gorge, in which the Lech breaks through a rock that is assigned to the Falkensteinkamm to the west and the Ammergau Alps to the east. It is controversial whether this gorge gave its name to Füssen. It was created at the end of the Würm Ice Age around 12,000 years ago, when the meltwater from the Lech glacier formed a large lake that stretched to what is now Pfronten. As a drain from this lake, the Lech initially plunged about 100 m deep over the rock into what was then Lake Füssen and then eroded the narrow rock gorge.

    Totally wrong!
    This is the Lechfall and not the Mangfall 🙃

    More beautiful than the view of the Lechfall I find the view of the gorge.
