Bichlbach is a municipality in the district of Reutte in the Austrian state of Tyrol.

Geography[edit]

Bichlbach lies at an elevation of 1,079 m above sea level (AA) in the Zwischentoren, the valley that links the Ehrwald Basin with the Lech valley. Over the municipal territory runs the watershed between the Lech and Loisach. The municipality consists of three villages: the elongated Straßendorf of Bichlbach (1,079 m (AA), population: 550) and the two almost adjacent villages of Lähn (1,112 m (AA), pop: 225) and Wengle (1,083 m (AA), pop: 76; population figures as at 15 May 2001). Bichlbach is the base for an ascent of the Kohlbergspitze (2,202 m) on a waymarked path that takes around 3 hours.
