Seealpsee Aescher Mountains

Here is a small update. Got some time to go through all my photos and edited quite a few of Seealpsee Ebenalp Aescher Mountains. Very nice place and i will we going back there to move up to the Säntis Mountain. Spectacular views there.

Seealpsee is a lake in the Alpstein range of the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden, Switzerland. At an elevation of 1,143.2 m, the surface area is 13.6 hectares (34 acres). The lake can be reached by foot from Wasserauen or from Ebenalp. A network of routes around Ebenalp connects Seealpsee with other notable sights in the Appenzell Alps, such as the Wildkirchli and Säntis.

The Ebenalp area is full of wonderful hiking options, including this great hike from famous cliff restaurant (Wildkirchli Aescher Gasthaus) to the gorgeous Seealpsee lake. After a short walk from the cable car to the cliff restaurant, you’ll continue hiking down the mountain on a switchback trail of about 2 km to the Seealpsee lake.

This is a very popular spot with locals on sunny weekends. Here you can lounge on the lake shore, row a boat across the lake, eat in a restaurant, stroll around the lake, even splash in the water on a hot day. To return to your starting point, you can either take it easy by walking the service road, or hike through the forest along a stream with little waterfalls. This hike is a little longer and more work than other hikes. It’s worth the extra effort 🙂 . (text:
