- Kriegerhorn Tour
A crisp tour that even takes bikers in good shape to the summit of the Kriegerhorn.
A more demanding mountain bike tour that takes you from Oberlech via the viewpoint “Tannegg” uphill to the Grubenalpe. Continually uphill you will reach the Kriegeralpe. Now you can enjoy culinary delights until you reach the reservoir and the dam. Strongly conditioned, take the Güterweg uphill to the left until you reach the top station Kriegerhornbahn and the top cross of the Kriegerhorn.
Special features: Up until the Tannegg, the tour can also be done on a racing bike or road bike. Sights: The Chluppa (stone wall) – each inhabitant of Lech Zürs am Arlberg was “immortalised” in 2010 with a stone onto which their name and year of birth are engraved. Refreshment stops: Kriegeralpe, restaurants in Lech am Arlberg, Oberlech and Zug.

From the hike starting point in front of the post office, follow the main road downstream towards Warth. Shortly before leaving Lech am Arlberg, turn onto the paved back road that goes uphill towards Oberlech.
Continue past the Berg area going straight ahead, ascend through the forest and then across a mountain pasture until you reach the first houses of Oberlech. After the “Schlössle” bus stop, take the paved bach road right and continue cycling uphill until you reach the view point “Tannegg” incl. barbecue site.
From here, follow the gravel alpine path to the left going uphill past the Grubenalpe. From here, the trail ascends steadily to the Kriegeralpe. After some refreshments here, it is only a short walk uphill to the Speichersee Lake and the stone wall.
Very fit cyclists can take a little detour turning left onto the supply road and up to the top station of the Kriegerhorn cable car and the Kriegerhorn summit cross (2,173 m). Or else you can cycle past the Speichersee Lake on the right-hand side and follow the supply road downhill, across mountain pastures and then along the Zuger Tobel valley until you reach the paved toll road. Exit to the left here and go into Zug town centre and make your way back to the starting point.
