LECH AM ARLBERG

Summer

The mountain summer in Lech is one of nature's spectacles: colourful alpine flowers, the bright blue sky. At sunset, you can witness the legendary Alpenglow.

Hiking brings man closer to nature, but also closer to himself. Outdoor hiking has a great number of benefits for both the body and the mind. It is healthy, relaxing and gives people peace and vitality, allowing them to wind down, dream, and contemplate. In Lech there are countless, well-marked hiking trails to suit all levels. They range from relaxing walks for your family to alpine climbs for mountaineers.

Summer in Lech has a lot to offer:

Lech is an insider tip for golf enthusiasts: In Zug, located at 1,500 m above sea level, there is a 19-hectare, handicap 9-hole golf course that both beginners and professionals can enjoy. The fairways are designed so that players have to play over the Lech River several times.
