  • You can reach of Kandersteg, in the summer and autumn months in a one-hour hike to the Lake. Ambitious hikers can turn along the way to the Umbel rothornhütte cabin (about 2 hours from Kandersteg) or by Lake Oeschinen next to the Fründenhütte and, last but not least, to the Blümlisalphütte (Hohtürli). All wonderful hikes! Alpinists climb even the surrounding peaks. Each / r, moving away a little from the two restaurants, a cozy place will be on the lake itself. Those who have enough courage and not afraid of cold water, can risk "A Schwumm". It is very refreshing every day! When it goes up with the car, it is advisable for the first ski lift at the junction to choose the left path and go over the so-called "warehouses" to the Lake. You can enjoy a wonderful view on the Lake then down from there. Last but not least you could skate the two last winter on the Öeschinensee: A top adventure - black ice, you can see below the water and stones. A place you anyone can visit!

  • Took the cable-car from kandersteg, a great place to walk or ski given the right conditions. Am easy walk to the lake surrounded by mountains and stunning views. 
  • I hesitate to recommend this place because there's a part of me that wants to keep it secret. It's breathtaking with some magical hikes around its turquoise waters. An unmissable Swiss experience that...  more »

  • A must visit. There is a cable car from Kandersteg and then a walk of about a mile to get the the lake. It's mostly downhill but not too steep but it does mean that the walk back is uphill. There is a small electric shuttle bus which carries about 10 people if you need it but it isn't free. If you enjoy strenuous walking there looks to be some fine, but steep walks, round the lake. The scenery at the lake is stunning.
  • Amazing place! I especially recommend taking a hike up to Bluemlisalp hut.
  • Beautiful mountain lake with trails and art around it.
  • Good
  • One of the most beautiful lakes that are worth visiting, spectacular and seating areas and lawns near the Lake therefore recommend taking a rug and snacks to sit near the Lake distance between cable cars and Lake far away (more than half an hour walk) there is a small bus to navigate and requires waiting and fees and recommended for who can't walk can enjoy balshalikh near the cable car after coming back from the Lake to avoid going to the Lake when we're busy.
