Austrian Alps

Route: Oberlech

Area: Austrian Alps

Date of walk: 2nd July 2015

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 1.4 miles

Weather: Perfect

After this morning’s wonderful walk in the Tannberg region, and a swim in the forest pool near Lech, there was still time for another short walk – we wanted to make the most of the glorious weather on offer

We returned to our base at the Hotel Burg in Oberlech from there walked over to the adjacent Petersboden chair lift. This whisked us up to a height of around 6,500 feet in no time at all. The views from the top were wonderful

The walk back to the hotel was as easy as it gets, being gently downhill all the way on well maintained paths

As with this morning’s walk, the wild flowers in the meadows were a particular highlight, it was a spectacular display and we were glad we’d timed our visit to see them at their best
