"Nature reserves in Liechtenstein: Gampriner Seelein"
Issue date: 6th June 2017
Nature reserves Series

With a surface area of 1.53 hectares, Lake Gampriner Seelein was created through extreme erosion, known as “scouring”, during a flood of the Rhine River in 1927. In 1961, the scenic spot was declared a protected area by the government. With its belt of silt and the surrounding gallery forest, the lake provides a habitat for valuable aquatic flora and for many birds and small animals (text Liechtenstein Post). 

Two panoramic photographs showing the lake from the same perspective – with the Alvier Range (left) and the Alpstein Range (right) of the Appenzell Alps, – once in autumn and once in winter.
