Tips

  • TH✪MAS

    Beautiful mountain lake in the middle of the Alpstein, with a panorama that could not have been created better on the computer.

    Free-roaming cows, bright green sparkling water, cheese dairy, Alphorn blower ...... heart what more do you want?

    The Seealpsee is a lake at 1142 m above sea level. M. lying lake in the Alpstein area in Switzerland and belongs to the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden.
    In July 2009 and 2010, according to studies by the ETH Zurich and the Universities of Zurich and Copenhagen from 2009, the Seealpsee turned red due to a high density of the alga Tovellia sanguinea, a dinoflagellate species. This thrives particularly well in nutrient-poor cold water lakes at altitudes of over 1000 meters. This is the first occurrence of red water staining by Tovellia sanguinea since the Lake Tovel stains until 1964.
    Length: 630 m Altitude: 1,143 m Area: 14 ha Maximum depth: 15 m
    Discharge: Schwendebach → Sitter → Thur → Rhine → North Sea

    By the way, the path leads down through a beautiful forest and further up you have beautiful views of parts of the Alpstein.

    The lake invites you to a cool bath. Do not forget swimwear.

    Beautiful place, but unfortunately very very touristy and totally overpopulated. But at the beginning and at the end of a hike in the Alpstein, a wonderful place and also simply beautiful in spite of many people.

    We have been there many times. Beautiful! But beware: On weekends there is almost traffic jam, because so many people want to see this extraordinary area.

    A great highlight for hikes in the area.
    Relatively many people in fine weather - so a hike in the early morning is highly recommended to really enjoy the great lake

    You can not miss it, if you are in Alpstein on the way. You can rest on the way to Säntis.

    Around the lake there is a hiking trail, of course I was back on the bike ... not recommended, absolutely no bike ride, neither the driveway (too steep), nor the circular walk

    From the back of the lake, one of the two paths leads to the Meglisalp (from below), technically not very easy. The upper path (Schrennweg) is a bit more balanced.
