The village of Namlos, characterized by a rather strange name which in English means "nameless", is located in the Namloser Tal, a side valley of the Lechtal. In 1286 AD, it was mentioned for the first time in written documents. Its name probably derives from the former settler "Amel", which in the course of time became "Namles" and further on "Namlos". On October 8, 1930, a strong earthquake shattered this area, today known as "Namloser Beben".
Once upon a time, in winter inhabitants moved away from this place, while today the mountain village is a real insiders' tip for those who seek relaxation and calm. It can be reached on a fully developed road from Stanzach, at the junction of the Lechtal valley and the Namlos Valley, or from Berwang. Numerous hiking and MTB trails wind in the Namlos Valley, while the Lechtal valley awaits you with three riding stables, aviation facilities, and a rafting and canyoning centre.
Something special: In autumn, you can experience the deer rutting season in the Namlos Valley. When the snow falls, it turns into a paradise for snowshoeing. In the Lechtal valley, however, you can find several skiing areas which are connected to the large Tyrolean Zugspitz Arena Ski Region.
