Nature parks are protected areas that are home to a variety of interesting and rare animal and plant species. The Nature Park Tiroler Lech is one of five nature parks in Tyrol and the only one which is not located in the high alpine area.
It extends from the Lech Valley over the entire nature park region of Reutte. The central element in the Tyrolean Lech Nature Park is, as the name suggests, the wild river Lech. In many places still untamed, the Lech is allowed to do what once every river could do: spread out to its heart's content, branch out and reunite. In the nature park, nature conservation and recreation are to be combined, there is to be research and educational opportunities.
