Natural environment

Paznaun is an ideal starting point for hiking in See in Tyrol on the different mountain groups. Samnaun, Verwall and Silvretta are easy to reach and day trips from the valley are possible as well as multi-day mountain bike tours. The dispersed settlement of See is located 1,050m above sea level on the right-hand side of the valley. It is mainly made up of farms and hamlets.
Starting from the centre of See this hiking trail leads around the parish church, on the road to the Schaller Hamlet. Carry on hiking uphill on the forest road until you reach the breathtaking waterfall, which is considered to be See’s most stunning natural beauty. After passing the Medrig Alp at 1,800m you will come to the Ascher Hut. Enjoy the fresh alpine air at 2,256 metres and the beautiful views of the Blankalopf or the Rotpleiskopf. Take the gentle and elevated footpath to the Versing Alp (1,937m) for your ascent and further to the Medrig Alp back to See. The beautiful round trip provides stunning views of Lower-Paznaun’s sunny side with the Verwall-Group.
This trail is also very popular with mountain bikers. The whole route lets you enjoy the lovely panorama and you can even take some time-out on the sun-terrace at the Ascher Hut. You can choose to take the more challenging trail-descent, before returning on a gravel path through the forest to the See valley.
