Lech’s local mountain, the Omeshorn, lying high above Zug and Lech, invites visitors to pay a visit from summer to early autumn.
From the hotel, head down to the river Lech and cross the river by the fish pond. The Sommerweg then follows a steep incline via the summery Madloch Piste to the Gstütalpe. From here, the trail runs steeply up the mountain to the left before evening out over the last few metres in height. Keep to the right as it is advisable to avoid the scree slope to the left.
The summit cross on the Omeshorn does not mark the highest point, otherwise it would not be so clearly identifiable from the valley. However, the last few steps are well worth taking – if nothing else for but the excellent photo opportunity and the view which is even better than the one at the cross. Here all of the Arlberg’s renowned mountains are close enough to touch: the Rote Wand, Braunarlspitze, Mohnenfluh, Widderstein, Biberkopf, Valluga, Roggalspitze, Obere and Untere Wildgrubenspitze, Spullerschafberg and many more. Visiting the Omeshorn in poor visibility would simply be a waste!
On the way back, it is worth taking extra care down as far as the Gstütalpe. Those who prefer circular routes can walk via the Madlock towards Zürs and on via the Wiesele to Lech or via the Stierlochjoch and Ravensburger Hütte to the Spullersee lake and from here by bus back to Zug.
In stable high pressure conditions, the Omeshorn tour is highly recommended. In damp conditions, the route is tricky due to the risk of slipping.
