  • There are many artificial lakes, this is definitely the most grandiose for its more than six kilometers in length. The share, over 2300 meters high, prevents the presence of trees on its banks, but the views are not lacking: at the beginning of the road along its western shore through glimpses that open a gallery of a km, then on the tops around towering but they do not quite c orollario the Lake. The dam that creates Lake is very high, characterised not by a curve but straight and converging walls. Climb up to the Lake on the path near the dam allows to realize his greatness.

  • It is to see at least once in his life. The dam is really huge and impressive. The climb can be done very easily in cable car but it's worth to do a ballad once arrived at the dam. Otherwise, the dam cross on foot in 10 minutes. The view of the Lake and the surrounding summits is beautiful. The hotel at the foot of the dam gives an atmosphere very "Shining" on arrival!

  • I was on business there and we had a guided tour of the chef personally. It was very interesting this immense building! A witness of the former pioneer spirit of Switzerland which today hardly more would be possible... really impressive!

  • Cool place to visit. There's a cable car going up and down, not to expensive. I was at the end of season with beautiful colors, even saw some chamois!
  • A silent beauty... Also, good one for hiking
  • Been there during rain and fog with almost snow during August ... enjoyed and guided tour anx it was amazingly great. Authentic experience. Drove all the way up with a large motorhome ... slightly adventurous but worked well.
  • Extremely impressive dam and work of swiss people. Beautiful place and scenery. Very interesting visit.
  • Very nice place to visit. The view of the dam is amaizing from the bottom and the top as well.
