See

The idyllic village of See is the first one you come across in the Paznauntal valley.

Altitude: 1,056 m asl

See was founded around 1400 AD by farmers of Serfaus and Fiss. It was part of the parish of Serfaus until 1630 and for this reason dead people had to be carried to the cemetery of Serfaus via the Furglerjoch saddle (2,748 m asl) up to that year. In the Tyrolean freedom fights around 1809, at the “Gigger Tobel”, located in the east of See, about 1,500 Bavarian soldiers were kept from invading the Paznauntal valley by 800 local defenders, also called “Schützen”.

See has also brought forth some famous citizens such as Andreas Thamarsch (1639 - 1697), diocese sculptor of Keisheim/Bavaria and Stams, and the snowboard world champion of 1997 and 1999, Karl-Heinz Zangerl. In summer See is a real paradise for those who love hiking. Also the Outdoor Wellness Park Medrigalm might be a hiking destination: wellness and adventures are waiting for you and your kids at 1,800 m asl. And if you would like to save your energies you can simply take the funicular starting at the centre of the village in order to reach this leisure time facility…

However, the skiing area of See includes 41 km of ski slopes, in other words, your skiing holidays start right in front of your doorstep. A modern 6-seater gondola takes you into the skiing area, equipped with 9 lift facilities. Other 42 km of ski slopes are available in the nearby Kappl-Paznaun skiing area.

Our recommendation: worth noticing is Castle Wiesberg, dating back to the 13th century and located at the place where the Stanzertal and the Paznauntal valleys join, and the rail-road bridge Trisanna, also called “Wiesberger Brücke”, which is the most remarkable construction of the Arlberg Railway.
