Stanzach - Berwang
Berwang is a mountain village in the Lechtal Alps with almost 600 inhabitants. The village is located 14 km east of Stanzach. The tour to Berwang starts in the centre of Stanzach. A few metres west of the town centre, Namloserstraße branches off to the left towards the Namloser Tal. At the entrance of the Namlosertal a small ascent of about 100 m above sea level has to be mastered. After the ascent the asphalted road runs slightly uphill along the right flank of the valley into the Namlos Valley. After 10 km you reach the 1264 m high village Namlos. A few meters after Namlos the road becomes steeper again. After another 3 km you pass the Namlos district Kelmen. A little later the road reaches a saddle point and it goes downhill again for a few meters and uphill again on the other side of the Rotlech. After a short ascent you reach Rinnen, a district of Berwang. After 22 km you reach the mountain village Berwang. In Berwang there are numerous refreshment stops at the various inns. In addition to the route to Stanzach, there are several alternatives as a way back to Stanzach. There is the possibility to drive through the Rotlechtal to Weißenbach and back to Stanzach along the river Lech. The narrow path through the Rotlechtal valley is not passable in many places and the mountain bike must be worn in some places. The total distance from Stanzach to Berwang and back through the Rotlechtal is 44 km. The 2nd alternative leads along the Berwanger Valley to Bichlbach and on to Reutte. From Reutte we return along the river Leches to Stanzach. However, this route is not suitable for beginners with a total length of more than 50 km. Depending on weather conditions and time, a lot of (motorcycle) traffic must be expected!
