MOUNTAIN ADVENTURES FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
The Lech region offers countless different walking opportunities for the whole family. Walkers' buses take you wherever you need to go, e.g. to the starting point of a fabulous hiking tour to the Zuger Tobel. The Tannberg hiking area offers a selection of walks that are both varied and easy: one possible route, for example, takes you through flower-filled alpine meadows, past high almlands and along a stream to the Körber lake. The stretch along the banks of the river Lech is perfectly suited to a walk with prams or buggies, and offers the option of a stop at the forest swimming pool or at a barbecue area. Another good alternative that is well-adapted to four wheels or children's feet is a walk to the Spuller lake; suitable for absolutely everyone, this is a real high altitude mountain experience with fabulous views.
Fabulous walks, fun in the fresh air and a chance to discover the fascination of the natural world.
Decisions, decisions. Do you simply want to head for the hills? Would you prefer to climb to the top of the mountain? How about a thematic folklore walk, or one following in the tracks of the old Walser tribes? Maybe you just fancy a stroll beside a mountain stream? On your own, with someone special, with the family, or in a group with an experienced mountain guide from Arlberg Alpin or our own hotel walking guide from the Filomena? On foot, or on two, three or four wheels? Whatever you decide, with over 350 km of well-marked footpaths, the Arlberg region offers a plethora of possibilities. Come and discover all the loveliest spots for yourself!
The many inviting mountain alms and huts tempt you to take a pleasant break and spoil yourself with a selection of home-made delicacies. Thanks to the well-organised system of connecting cable cars, chair lifts and the walkers’ bus, some of these huts are quite easy to access.
Crystal clear mountain lakes
A visit to the Formarinsee and Spullersee, our local lakes, is an absolute must. Both lakes offer a host of interesting things to do. You can fish, or on especially hot days a bold jump into the cold water is very good way of cooling off! Kids can splash around near the bank and adults can take a walk around the lake and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Afterwards why not enjoy some tasty local food, washed down with a cool drink to toast the wonderful mountain scenery?
If you enjoy fishing, we have just the thing for you: the Lech angling pool.
