Shortly before the Austrian border, near Füssen, is one of Bavaria’s most beautiful geotopes: the Lech Falls. Here, the water masses of the Lech plunge spectacularly twelve metres into the depths over five steps. Below this unique natural monument begins the Lech Gorge, which the Lech River carved out of the rock thousands of years ago. It is the only one in the Bavarian Alps where a river fed by the Alps can still flow unhindered. The waterfall attracts many visitors to the border region every year. Nearby, you can also marvel at other Allgäu geotopes such as the Pöllat Gorge and the Reichenbach Gorge.
