best season

An easy trail leads you from Senggiweid to the unspoilt Blauseeli and on around the village of Schwenden. Enjoy the beautiful view of the mountain village at the back of the Diemtigtal.

After just a few metres, you will reach the idyllic Blauseeli on the easy circular trail. Regardless of whether it is covered in deep snow or only a little snow, the Seeli impresses with its deep blue colour and is a popular photo spot. Later, on the Seehorenweid, a beautiful view opens up over the mountain village of Schwenden and you already discover your next destination: the romantic chapel near the former Grandhotel Kurhaus Grimmialp.

If there is enough snow, you can extend the trail as you wish:
From Seehorenweid you hike further out of the valley via Oberematte, Seeboden to the Anger cattle showground (3.5 km).
