A genuine feast for the eyes: Towering mountain ranges wherever you turn your gaze, two tarns and a reservoir nestling idyllically in between. Take your time to absorb the scenery and pause for a while!

Ride up on Hochjoch Bahn to Kapell, carry on to Sennigrat either on foot or on the double-seater chair lift. From that exposed ridge, dazzling views of four mountain ranges unfold: the Silvretta, Raetikon, Verwall and Lechquellen mountains. From there, a high-altitude trail leads to Wormser Hütte and then returns to Kapell downhill, passing Herzsee, Schwarzsee and Seebligasee. In winter, these slopes and trails are populated by skiers. Lake Seebligasee was constructed as a reservoir to store water for artificial snow-making.
Excursion to the Kreuzjoch (2,398 m) about 1/2 hour.
