The Lechtal Alps form the largest and highest group in the Northern Limestone Alps. Parseierspitze is the highest peak, 3.036 m. No wonder this area is very popular with hikers. Thanks to the many huts (some 20 huts of the Alpine Association alone) and many good hiking trails, it is not an area where you will get bored easily.
The area is located in western Austria, east of the popular ski resort of Lech. The long, continuous main ridge is its most impressive feature. The key here is dolomite and other types of limestone, popular with sport climbers. Good area too for lofty hikes over the many via ferrata.
Many major long-distance footpaths, like the E4, E5, Weitwanderweg 1, Via Alpina, all cross the Lechtal Alps.
