Description

Whether a family outing, hiking day or simply to enjoy nature – the Oeschinensee lake is definitely worth a trip. The deep-blue lake nestles between glaciers and centuries-old pine forest, surrounded by a majestic mountain world. Many guidebooks rate it the most beautiful lake in the Alps.
