Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Tiroler Lechtal planned a hike.
July 5, 2021
This relaxed hike takes you along easy paths and without major differences in altitude along the Lech and is particularly exciting for those interested in botany. Because you are passing the Frauenschuh area near Martinau. This hike is particularly beautiful when the rare orchid is in bloom between mid-May and mid-June. But the Lechauen are also well worth seeing outside of this time.The starting point of this hike is in Elmen. Over the Klimmbrücke you get to the other side of the Lech and pass the Hotel LechZeit. Even if after just one kilometer it is actually too early to stop for a break, cakes and the hotel's good cuisine entice you to take a short rest.We continue on a well-developed path along the banks of the Lech. You can keep an eye on the beautiful mountains all the time. You walk through Martinau and shortly afterwards the Frauenschuh area is on the right-hand side of the path. During the flowering period, the area is looked after by the Tyrolean Mountain Rescue Service and you can hike on narrow paths through a yellow carpet of flowers. But even outside of the flowering period, you can learn more about the different types of plants with the help of many display boards.You continue to follow the banks of the Lech until just before Stanzach, where you change the side of the river again and start the way back on the other side. You will then return to Elmen through the shady forest and across the fields. If you are hungry, you can end your hike with a delicious meal in the Landhasthof Kaiserkrone.
