    If in Switzerland, this is a must see lake, but don't expect any solitude during the day in the summer. After about 5pm, the day visitors leave and the area is much more quiet (just hotel guests, empl...  more »

    A fantastic place to visit whether you walk up from the Kandersteg village or use the gondola. Very blue waters entice you to take a cheeky paddle  more »

  • Beautiful lake, so impressive! Must see! Tip: if you want to avoid the crowds... go on a weekday and go early.
  • Took the cable car up for the toboggan run and walked 20 to 30 minutes to the lake. The lake is beautiful and a good scenic spot. Ended off the day by walking down to Kandersteg.
  • Gorgeous blue lake, serene and quiet areawith hardly any people around. We took the gondola up and hiked down.
  • 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.
