Lake Brienz

The turquoise Lake Brienz in the Bernese Oberland and neighbouring Lake Thun are situated in a spectacular mountain setting. A boat ride on this typical alpine lake with its steep sides is a truly memorable experience. As well as the towns of Brienz and Interlaken to visit, other sights around Lake Brienz include the Mystery Park, the Ballenberg Museum and the mighty Giessbach Falls.

The turquoise Lake Brienz and neighbouring Lake Thun are set amid the spectacular mountain scenery of the Bernese Oberland. Passengers aboard the “Lötschberg” paddle steamer from the Belle Epoque (built in 1914) are inspired by its wonderfully nostalgic atmosphere.

Lake Oeschinen - a Mountain Lake for Sybarites

Lake Oeschinen, which lies above Kandersteg, is a pristine mountain lake, fed by the glacial brooks of the three-thousand-meter peaks of Blüemlisalp, Oeschinenhorn, Fründenhorn and Doldenhorn. People who love to swim, nature lovers and hikers can really enjoy themselves here.

Illgraben-Bhutan Bridge

Erosion caused the mountain to collapse and the vast, pale yellow and reddish rock basin to form, which becomes bigger every year. From the Grabenrad or the Illhorn (2,716 m) there are "fear inspiring" yet stunning views down into the Rhone valley.

Erosion has created an immense, pale yellow rock basin that is growing larger every year. It is well worth admiring this phenomenon of nature. The circular route follows the (mostly dry) bed of the Wildbach to the Bhutan Bridge and the Güetji viewing pulpit. Return to Susten along the other side of the trench.

Reuss

The Reuss is Central Switzerland’s quintessential river. Starting in the Gotthard region, it steadily flows northward, through Lake Lucerne, and after 160 kiliometers it ultimately flows near Windisch into the Aare River.
