  • Höhenprofil

    A panoramic and intensive round around the most striking Lech summit, the mighty Omeshorn. The tour runs in large parts along the second stage of the Green Ring.

    The Omeshorn is probably one of the most famous photo motifs in Lech, as it rises above the village to protect it. And in the Lecher mountain summer a hike or a run in this area belongs to the fixed program of many guests. Of course, it is also possible to circumnavigate the Omeshorn.

    10 minutes rest at the Zürsersee should be used in any case, the view is simply fantastic!

  • Directions

    From Lech we take the hiking trail in the direction of Zürs. The beginning is quite flat and pleasant to warm up properly. Shortly after crossing the Straé near the cogeneration plant, the path becomes narrower and steeper. Finally, one branches off to the right in the direction of Madlochalpe and Lake Zurich. From here the path becomes a path and in steep serpentines the path rises quickly to the top. After the Madlochalpe it goes to the Zürser See, here you have a fantastic view to Lech and to the beautiful mountains around Zürs. From here, one follows the signs of the Green Ring in the direction of Madlochjoch and Omeshon. At the Madlochoch most of the climbs have been completed. Now it goes past the bivouac and the Gstüatalpe again down to Lech, where one can regain one’s strength in one of the numerous restaurants.
