We had a picnic on a bench along the lake trail. The scenery is exquisite! There are a couple of restaurants there, but make sure you take the trails, get away from other people, and enjoy the fact that the scenery shifts with every turn...More

The untouched mountains of Oeschinensee is a UNESCO site. Simple, quaint, beautiful. Worth a visit. Don't forget the Rodelbahn at Oeschinensee.

Take the cable car, unless you are bonkers, and a 20 minute walk down the lake and the most incredible view awaits you. If you are unfit there is a little electric bus that will take you back to the cable car every half hour.
