Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A doable 15 minutes it took us to walk from Fussen to Lechfall. We first saw it on a map and thought it would be interesting to explore—and it is. You can also take a bus and taxi. We thought our walk was quite entertaining observing the countryside. If you have a car, just watch-out when you pull-out.

About 12,000 years ago an Ice Age cut through a gorge and eventually a 158 mile/255KM river. Today the Lech River has 33 hydroelectric plants making valuable electricity for the region.

In the 18th Century the cataracts were transformed into ledges. The beautiful blue waters flow across these ledges today. The day we visited there was a good amount of water which hid the ledges. Regardless, the area does make good photographs.

Just a short way from the 5 ledges is a high cliff in a short gorge with a bust of Maximilian II. He brought peace between Roman Catholics and Protestants in the 16th century. He was “King of Bohemia” and a Holy Roman Emperor.

In Fussen, we thought the Museum of Fussen to be quite interesting and worth while. It was once an Abby and a Town Hall. The Library is quite stunning and you may come across pictures of it in Fussen. I have a picture of the Library on my computer screen.

Excellent waterfall close to the city. There's a bridge so you can get a good view of the waterfall.

Wonderful panorama view of the Leech lake and waterfall, especially from the main bridge. It's definetely worth stopping by if you are in the area, such as for visiting the historic castles. You don't need a ticket for this one. There is also a free small parking lot in front of the main scenic spot, as well as clean toilets. PS: This waterfall is man-made.

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!

We took a lovely hike through the park to get to the falls and it is stunning! The trail was very close to our hotel in Fussen. Highly recommend!

These falls were about 30 minutes from our hotel in the centre of Fussen. We walked along the river Lech to reach the falls. The gorge and falls are beautiful and well worth the short walk. We combined our visit with the tree top walk which is just up the road on the Austrian border. We walked back to Fussen along the footpath next to the road.

That's really about it. There are 50c loos around the corner if you need them, otherwise not much to say.

Beautiful and powerful falls but make sure you do it when the river is lowish. I went after it rained and the water height was up and I couldn’t see the steps properly. Still a great site and must see when in Fussen.

The Lech falls over 5 steps. Nice to look at when in the area. In spring, after the snow has melted, probably the most beautiful.

There is a small parking lot directly at the Lechfall. You can park there for free. It's not even 100 meters on foot. Especially in the early morning hours or towards evening there are fewer tourists on site. It is also even more beautiful when the sun rises / sets behind the mountains and trees.

Certainly not a top-class natural spectacle, but still worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a small kiosk across the street.
Easy to reach, even with a stroller or something else.
On the opposite side of the street, at the kiosk, it goes up to the Kalvarienberg. It offers a beautiful view of the surrounding area. However, some stamina and good shoes are recommended. The way up is steep and long

Nice walk from the city center to the Fall and back. The view is really nice and the walk accessible. It is also accessible by car. If you choose to walk with a Buggy, there are few stairs to consider.
