Summer holiday in Lech am Arlberg

Experience mountains and water –
with your Lech Card

Lech has a very large hiking area. So large that many people make use of the “blue” local/hiking bus. Guests staying for one night or longer can use this public transport service for free.

However, anyone wanting to visit the “most beautiful place in Austria“, around Lake Formarin and Lake Spuller, in order to start their walk along the Lechweg trail for example, should ask their landlord for a Lech Card. This includes not only the journey, but also the road toll. The Lech Card is aimed primarily at walkers and families on holiday. It is therefore free for children under 14.

Lech Card: sport, fun & action for the entire family

The Lech Card is a tourist card that offers a range of wet weather alternatives. You also get better service and discounts at a variety of local partners such as the sport.park.lech and the sports shop, as well as exciting ideas to help you plan your excursions into the Vorarlberg countryside

This “Experience.Lots.More” card lets you do just that. You can take a trip over the Rüfikopf or other mountain peaks, visit the forest swimming pool, take part in the exciting children’s programme or even travel for free on the hiking bus. All this is possible for 3 days if you stay two nights or more for the price of 24 euros per person. And the longer you stay in Lech, the more advantageous the Lech Card becomes. Work it out for yourself, you’ll see it’s worth it!ur leisure time card for your summer holiday in Lech at a glance

Let us introduce you to three particularly rewarding hiking paths, two of which can be experienced in stages.

Lechweg: right outside your bed & breakfast Hotel Edelweiss

The 124 km Lechweg leading from the source of the Lech to the Lechfall weir goes directly past Hotel Edelweiss. You can hike on two stages from/to Lech. Stage number one leads from the source of the river Lech near Formarinsee over 14 easy kilometres to Lech. Stage number two leads from Lech to Warth. The hike, which is slightly longer than 9 km, can be mastered without putting a noticeable amount of strain on your physique and technique. Return journey by free hiking bus. Both stages cross one of Europe’s last remaining wild river landscapes!

Grüner Ring: three legendary hiking days at the Arlberg

Three daily stages take you away into the fabulous mountains around Lech. The paths lead across crests, to mythical waterfalls, dark valley plains and crystal-clear mountain lakes. Find out all about the Bützin in Monzabonsee, where the night people ramble and whether there really is treasure hidden deep inside Taurin’s cave during your hike on the Grüner Ring. The level of difficulty varies from stage to stage. If in doubt, choose stage one, the easiest of them all. We advise families with children to try the Grüner Rätsel Ring from Lech to Rud-Alpe. Young riddlers can solve exciting puzzles over a distance of 600 m. Tip: Obtain the book of riddles at the tourist office.
