  • Such a refreshing place! The hike there is nice two & you will get sweaty. Also nice to do in winter 👍
  • Best experience, it was my first hike and i loved it, the views were incredible and the lake was so blue and clear
  • Amazing place, nice hiking trails
  • It’s beautiful but got to famous through Instagram. There are many other places like that in Switzerland with less people.
  • Absolutely stunning lake/hike. Park at Wasserauen cable car station and then walk up the hill (follow the signs to seealpsee). Walk by the right side of the lake and then after the lake around 500m there is a hidden path to take you up the mountain ridge on the right hand side. Great 45 degree climb which after 2 hours will take you to Ebenalp and then after you can take the cable car down. Great day, start at 10am and finish at 2pm.
