      Are you looking for a little more challenge, demanding paths and untouched, lonely nature? You will find all of this on this hike that takes you from Gramais to two remote mountain lakes. Surefootedness, sturdy shoes, rainwear and sufficient provisions and drinks are part of the basic equipment here, because you won't find any places to stop along the way.

      You start at the village car park in Gramais and follow the signs to the Roßkarsee. You hike along the Roßkarbach into the valley. You will soon have to overcome some scree fields, but the path is still easy to see overall. Some waterfalls rush into the valley and even though you've only just started it feels like civilization is far, far away.

      At the end of the valley you can take a break before you start the steep ascent to the Roßkarsee. The view of the green glowing water, in which the mountains are reflected, makes up for every effort. From there, the hiking trail leads you a bit uphill and over the Heinzensprossensteig. Surefootedness is required here, because you hike over a rocky ridge and on both sides it goes down.

      Soon afterwards the path to the Schafkarsee branches off to the left. Embedded in a small basin below the Großer Schafkarspitze, the crystal-clear mountain lake invites you to take a long break. You then hike downhill again over the Hirschleskopf and back to Gramais.

      On the three and a half kilometer long vital path in Holzgau you will get to know the five elements of Kneipp's health theory. Information boards along the way and some stations provide information for anyone who wants to know more. And by the way, beautiful panoramic views and one of the longest suspension bridges in Austria await you.

      The start is in Holzgau, which is also considered the pearl of the Lech Valley due to the many lavishly painted houses. You stroll through the pretty town and start the ascent on the outskirts. Your path leads you across a mountain meadow and you will soon have great views of the Lech Valley. After almost a kilometer, you can take a breather at a small refuge and enjoy the view.

      Soon afterwards you will reach the 200.5 meter long Holzgau suspension bridge. It stretches over the Höhenbach Gorge at a height of more than 100 meters and is therefore not for people with a severe fear of heights. With a view of the valley, you continue hiking along the mountainside and over a picturesque mountain meadow landscape. Again and again, benches along the way invite you to take short breaks. Finally your path leads you downhill again and through the forest back to Holzgau. You can end your hike with a stop in one of the many restaurants or cafés in town.

      A leisurely hike through the original Hornbachtal with a stop at a rustic, traditional alpine pasture - this is what awaits you on this tour. On top of that, there are free views of the majestic peaks around you.

      You start at Hinterhornbach that you can easily reach by car. Past the sawmill you follow the well-developed path up the valley. Your hike takes you over flowery mountain meadows, garnished with picturesque huts. If you like to take photos, you are sure to find one or the other nice photo motif here.

      After a little more than a kilometer, the trees condense along the way and you walk along the wide riverbed of the Hornbach. The white gravel bed contrasts beautifully with the lush green trees on the banks and the rugged mountains that loom on both sides of the valley. Over a bridge you get to the other side of the river and pass the rustic Drähhüttenalm.

      Passing the mighty Saalbach waterfall you will reach the Petersbergalm after five and a half kilometers. Surrounded by mighty peaks, it lies at the head of the Hornbach valley. Here you can get all kinds of delicious home-made dishes. You then hike back to Hinterhornbach on the same path.

      There are several alpine pastures along the way on this hike. Those who prefer to take it easy can also shorten the hike and only hike as far as the Vorderbockbachalpe. You will experience full enjoyment on the whole hike up to the Almwirtschaft Älpele at 1,791 meters.

      Sufficient parking spaces are available at the starting point of the hike and the hiking bus also stops here. So you can also travel by public transport. First you follow the narrow, paved road that leads you in bends past the Postalm to the front Bockbachalm. You have a constant view of the impressive mountains of the Lechtal Alps.

      From the Bockbachalm you follow a narrow path that soon winds steeply uphill. There are still about 300 meters of altitude to overcome before you can enjoy the view of the valley from the Älpele. You really deserve this break. On another path you then descend again to the Vorderbockbachalpe. We recommend a short detour to the Gamsvroni snack bar, where you can regain strength with a good portion of Kaiserschmarrn. On the way back you can hike again on the paved road, but you can also take the old Bockbacher Weg instead. The narrow path runs parallel to the road and is a little quieter.

      On this mountain tour you climb one of the highest peaks in the Lechtal Alps. The way there leads you through an exciting tunnel section and the wild Sulzbachtal. That sounds fun? Then lace up your hiking boots and off you go!

      In order for this tour to be a success, you should not only have waterproof clothing and sturdy shoes, but also have previous alpine experience. A head for heights, surefootedness and climbing skills are required on the last section to the summit. Since this tour is only planned as a way there, you can do it in two days with an overnight stay at the Frederick Simms Hut.

      On the outskirts of Stockach you start your mountain adventure, which from now on leads you steadily uphill and towards the summit. After two kilometers you will immediately reach an exciting section, because you are hiking through several tunnels carved into the rock. Cooling off is very pleasant, especially on hot days. Again and again you can catch a glimpse of the Sulzlbachklamm from here.

      With a moderate gradient and a well-developed forest path you then follow the Sulzlbachtal. You will reach the cultivated Sulzlalm, where you can strengthen yourself before continuing. The forest road ends here and the path becomes a little more impassable. After six and a half kilometers, it is over with comfortable, because now there is another 400 meters of altitude to overcome over one and a half kilometers. The path winds up via a serpentine path to the Frederick Simms Hut, where you really deserve a break.

      From the hut it is another 800 meters to the summit. You climb over scree fields to the Fallenbacher Joch at 2,727 meters and from there to the summit. The key point, an exposed rock slab, is secured with a steel cable. Overall, the ascent is rated UIAA II. The view from the summit is rewarding for all efforts. The same route then takes you back to the starting point in Stockach.

      Admittedly, the destination of this hike - the Vorderhornbacher "local mountain" Baichlstein - is not very high at 1,164 meters, but still offers you a wonderful view of the Lechzopf. And so this tour is the perfect choice for all those who are looking for their happiness on the summit but are not (yet) confident about demanding mountain tours.

      The starting point of your tour can be reached either with your own car or by bus. From the Badino natural swimming pool you hike through Vorderhornbach and from there uphill through the forest and over open mountain meadows. After a little more than three and a half kilometers, the path to Baichlstein turns right, which you reach after a short, final ascent. Up there is also a Porta Alpinae installation by the Allgäu artist Guenter Rauch. The doors are located in particularly striking locations throughout the Alpine region. This door should open the view to the Lechzopf and remind with its construction of the old Tyrolean building culture.

      After enjoying the view from the summit during an extensive break, you can start the descent again. First you follow the same path back and then turn right at the Moos intersection. In an arc you walk around the Baichlstein again and then along the Lech back to your starting point. If you want, you can then refresh yourself with a cool swim in the natural swimming pool.

      This tour combines hiking and art. Along the path of the senses you will find various pieces of art made of wood, stone and stainless steel by local artists. The starting point is the pilgrimage church "Maria Schnee" in romantic Bschlabs.

      Following the signs for the "Path of the Senses", you hike through the forest and down to the Streimbach. A small bridge brings you over the turquoise blue water to the other bank. After a short ascent you will reach the place of silence, where you can enjoy the nature around you - far away from everyday stress and noise.

      The path of the senses ends shortly afterwards, but your hike continues to the Hölltal gorge. A narrow suspension bridge takes you to the other side of the gorge, while below you the Streimbach rushes through the 45 meters deep, but at its narrowest point only 40 centimeters wide gorge.

      Now you hike a little uphill again, cross the road and walk above the road over the Bschlaber Höhenweg back to Bschlabs. You hike through shady coniferous forests and over flowery mountain meadows and catch beautiful views of the wild and romantic Hölltal again and again.

      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.

      If you like to combine hiking and eating, the Geierwally circuit might be for you. On this leisurely circular hike, you pass two rustic refreshment stops: Kasermandl and Gibler Alm. The almost seven-kilometer circular hike is topped off with a few beautiful views of the Lechtal Alps and shady sections through quiet forests.

      You start at the Geierwally parking lot in Elbigenalp and past the open-air stage you leave the place. Now a decent ascent is waiting for you. Almost 400 meters in altitude have to be overcome in the first two kilometers. For this you can strengthen yourself for the first time directly above. In the Kasermandl you can choose from many classics of Austrian cuisine.

      It then goes much more level into the wild and romantic Bernhardstal. There are always beautiful views waiting for you. Finally you cross the Bernhardsbach and make your way back on the other side of the valley. From now on it goes downhill and soon after you reach the Gibler Alm. Freshly strengthened, you then tackle the last kilometer back to Elbigenalp.

      This hike awaits you with fantastic views of the Lechtal Alps and insights into the hard, traditional life of mountain farmers. The ten-kilometer hike is family-friendly, but should still be walked with sturdy shoes and appropriate hiking clothing.

      The starting point is the mountain station of the Jöchelspitzbahn. Ambitious hikers can of course conquer the ascent of 500 meters in altitude over just under four kilometers from the valley on their own. You hike across lush mountain meadows and along the botanical nature trail to the Lachenkopf, where you can learn all kinds of interesting things about the flora of the Alps. There is no moment in which you do not want to stop to enjoy the beautiful view of the valley. With a little luck you can also watch the paragliders who like to start here on and around the Sonnalm.

      Close to the Lachenkopf you pass the Bergheu Museum. In the rustic, small hut you will find an exhibition on the work and way of life of the Lechtal mountain farmers. After a short break, continue on the Alpenrosensteig in the direction of Bernhardseck. You keep the beautiful mountains in view the whole time - be careful not to stumble with the breathtaking view!

      You can stop off at Berggasthof Bernhardseck and strengthen yourself for the last descent into the valley. From there the path then leads steeply downhill and back to the valley station of the Jöchelspitzbahn.
