Hike in Val Maisas, south of Samnaun, to the Rote Seeli. This small lake used to turn red in the summer months due to algae, but now the pond is often almost dried out in summer, so that the phenomenon can no longer be observed.

The entrance to Val Maisas is via a steep little road leading to the Hirten cabin. With a little patience and luck, you can observe a golden eagle in its eyrie on the opposite slope. The single trail begins after the Hirten cabin and following a good 500 metres there is a turn-off towards Schwarzwand. Passing through alpine roses it steadily continues toward Schwarzwand. After about two hours you reach the Rote Seeli. This is a small lake whose water used to turn red in the summer months due to algae. In recent years, the lake dried up temporarily in summer, so the phenomenon could no longer be observed. The return path leads you via Lange Seite and Rossboden back to Samnaun Dorf.


The tour has been evaluated under favorable weather conditions. Current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be taken into account before the tour starts. This hike requires elementary alpine experience, orientation skills, hiking boots are recommended.
