The Lechtal is a valley of which the biggest part belongs to Tyrol, smaller sections belong to Vorarlberg and Bavaria in Germany. The landscape around the river Lech is regarded as one of the last natural, unregulated river landscapes in Europe. Consequently the valley is one of the most beautiful, original landscapes of the Alps with an amazing biodiversity. For summer tourists there is a whole range of breath taking hiking and biking trails like the 125 km long, exciting “Lechweg” alongside the river Lech. For winter tourists the small skiing areas are rather calm alternatives to the Hot spots in other parts of Tyrol. However, there is one village, Lech am Arlberg, that is not belonging to Tyrol, but Vorarlberg, the skiing area around Lech is one of the biggest and also most noble skiing areas in Austria.
