Intro

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.

Lake Oeschinen lies at the foot of the Blüemlisalp. Situated 1,578 meter above sea level, it is one of the larger Alpine Lakes. A gondola train leads from Kandersteg to a location near the lake. A half-hour walk across pastures and through pine forest takes you to the lake. The water in the lake warms up to 20 degree Celsius in the summer. Activities enjoyed here include rowing or riding on the summer toboggan run.

The rich mountain flora with orchids, gentian and edelweiss, the herds of sheep and cows grazing on the Alps and the wild animals on the mountain slopes attract nature lovers to the lake at the entrance to the Unesco World Heritage Site. In the winter, ice fishing or the 3.5 kilometer long toboggan run from the lake to the gondola station are popular attractions.
