Lähn and Wengle are two little villages that together with Bichlbach form the homonymous municipality. When in the 15th century the hamlet Mittewald was destroyed by an avalanche, it was rebuilt somewhere else. This place was named Lähn, which means avalanche. However, also this settlement was destroyed by an avalanche in 1689. Up to the 19th century Lähn represented the border of the dioces of Augsburg and Brixen/Bressanone.
Today the hamlets are both popular holiday resorts, located in the area of the Lechtal Alps and the famous Zugspitze mountain that is 2,962 m high.
