  • With all the certainties of the world, one of the most beautiful places I've visited to date. A magnificent lake, surrounded by trees features of reality. I saw the Lake fully frozen, with a good snow thickness and was amazing. I had the curiosity to find some photos of the Lake in the summer and is also superb. Go to the back of the Lake, which also has a significant number of houses, most of them are on vacation and occupied only during the summer. Visit to Switzerland, don't let this visit to Klontalersee fall by the wayside. Trust me, you won't regret it.

  • When you come here, middle in the summer, you feel like you’re in Paradise. The crystal clear water, the quiet and peace, the mountains that surround the lake. Just perfect.  more »
  • It's a place we know for many years and never tires, guaranteed. For hikers, there are many excursions for all the difficulties, glacier climbing and progression. In the very hot periods, you can dive in the cold waters. There are some high-altitude pastures that produce excellent cheeses within walking distance with a minimum of training. The Lake is sandwiched between cliffs, offering a spectacular view. Next year we'll be over there!
