Lech's Skyspace by James Turrell


Stopping to look at the sky is always a good idea and an excellent way to pass the time. And it’s even better when it’s done in a piece of contemporary art thought exactly for this purpose. If you’re wondering where this place might be, look no further than the a small hill above Oberlech.

The world-famous American artist James Turrell designed a Lightroom where sky and earth seem to encounter one another from a new point of view in the high alpine landscape of Lech. Located in the high mountains, James Turrell selected the location “Tannegg” in Oberlech at 1780 meters above sea level. A hiking trail leads to the small hill above the mountain station of the Schlosskopfbahn all year.
Once inside what Turrell calls the “sensing room,” visitors find themselves in a space captivated in light that cycles through saturated purples, pinks, and blues. At the top of the dome, a window 30 feet in diameter looks out onto sky. Glancing back through the entrance, the precisely positioned doorway creates a frame for the nearby peak
