Our MTB tour tips directly from your hotel in Lech

  • The Kriegerhorn Runde is a challenging tour: tackle a firm 870 altitude metres from Lech via Tannegg and Grubenalpe to the scenically situated Kriegeralpe, then onward to the summit – the Kriegerhorn (2,173 m). Take the Zuger Tobel and the village of Zug back to Lech.
  • The Spullersee Runde is a long but fairly moderate tour with wonderful views. First it’s off from Lech to Zug, then onwards via the Unteres Älpele to the Spullersee lake. Then’s it’s uphill again to the Ravensburger Hütte and onward to the Stierlochjoch before the route leads back to Lech via Zug in serpentines.
  • The Burgwald Trail in Lech am Arlberg is the first official freeride and enduro route in Vorarlberg. The trail near the Bergbahn Lech-Oberlech and the Petersbodenbahn cable cars offers lots of fun for beginners and ambitious mountain bikers. Wooden turns, North Shore elements, drops and technical obstacles challenge bikers.

To the start of the hike by bike

Bike and hike

Who hasn’t longed for a bicycle during many a hike – especially when the way back seems to be getting longer and longer – so you can simply race down the mountain? There’s a reason why ‘bike and hike’, the combination of cycling and hiking, is so popular. By covering part of the route by mountain bike you save a lot of time, making a longer tour possible even with a single day. Here you can find the best bike and hike tours in Lech Zürs. Holders of the My Lech Card can also participate in one of the guided tours.
