Located in a gorge carved over thousands of years of water-flow from an Ice Age lake, the water of Lechfall cascades over five tiers and can be enjoyed any time of year. Walk to the falls from the nearby town for a peaceful hike before you are greeted by the majestic crashing of the water. Take in the views from the bridge that spans the gorge, or hike further along the gorge to enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings.

This man made waterfall is a wonder to see. Very beautiful. The footbridge over the river is a great view point. Not if you are afraid of heights though!

What an amazing place to visit. You can walk form the city to here its like 20 Minutes. You also can go by car. A few spots are available. Oposite there is a little caffee and you get home made ice cream. The fall is a tourist spot. So there are a bit of people around and make picutres. But its worth going there.
Lechfall, is actually a manmade fall which was constructed around 18th century to stop flood situation in Füssen. Lech river flows from Austria flowing through Germany , in the state of Bavaria, making Forggensee, which is also a man-made lake. Slowly, this river flows until Augsburg before reaching the Danube. The special cyan-blue colors of the Lech can be also seen from Neuschwanstein castle. A walk around the Lechfall, crossing the bridge in Altstadt, Füssen is wonderful. Check out some images from my winter walk. More details, contact me on Instagram @the_snapwalk .
