The bridge outside the hamlet of Holz, near Waengle




Today’s walk starts at the bridge in Holz where yesterday’s walk ended.  Pick up the “L” logos here for the Lechweg and ascend into the forest. The path follows the contours of the valley and passes through forests and meadows from where there are great views towards the rocky peaks and down to Reutte in the valley below.  Soon, after approx. 3kms, there is a short ascent to the small Costaries chapel.  This is quite steep, and after the initial switchback path, there is a rocky section where a cable has been placed into the rock to aid as a handrail. Take good care with your footing.  There are fantastic views of the valley from the small clearing in the forest where the chapel sits.

Beyond the chapel, there is a long descent on a forest track from Frauensee.  This is a great place to swim and there is also a small mountain restaurant here.  Beyond the route descends on forest track and quiet roads to Pflach.  Just before you reach Pflach you will pass through a wetland area where there is an impressive birdwatching tower.

It is particularly important for this day that you wear comfortable sturdy boots and we strongly advise taking walking poles.  Given the distance, we also advise you take at least 2 litres of water with you.


 The terrain is tricky in places, with narrow forest paths and rocky sections.  Make sure you check the weather forecast before setting out, taking care if it will be wet and considering taking the bus for some of the ways if thunderstorms are forecast.

You may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
