  • On this easy passable path you will reach after an hour something there according to the brochures as a beautiful Lake should look like. That was certainly not the case. First, the view at the Lake was not spectacular, and second, you need the experience sharing along with hundreds of other tourists including many Japanese. No, please give us but the Pfingstegg walk on the on the other hand, to Berghaus Bäregg. Much quieter, nicer and more impressive.

  • In the 25-minute gondola ride to the observation deck. Unfortunately the rain would view of things it's not raining. From the Mountain Lake Bachalpsee from there. While taking a photo while watching the various alpine plants enjoyed only the atmosphere enough. Very rare we had decent climbing in. Alone while other tourists so they didn't feel like to walk around here. Marmot cry many times I've heard this figure to made sure. Thank you very much.

  • Amazing place
  • First got off the gondola to the top with children who arrived on foot for about an hour through the snowstorm Bach was troubled a lot of my limited vision, Alf rewarding enough you can feel it was a tranquil and mysterious. Bach while rolling on my second Alp and steep cliffs with views to experience a variety of environment is also a great memory. The weather is a little better, but the regret is that the weak want Blizzard to make it easier to experience walking in difficult terrain, mystical breezes into memories. When I arrived on my Bach as ALF 2 cabin toilet. Note please.
