Owner description: Oeschinensee is accessible by foot from Kandersteg within 1.5 hours. The cable car operates in summer and winter season daily from mornings till evenings - non stop. In summer enjoy swimming in the lake, boat rides on the blue and clear water or just have fun with the toboggan run at the top station of the cable car. Several hotels around the lake offer rooms in summer. Restaurants are open in winter and summer. The region belongs to the Unesco heritage Jungfrau-Aletsch.

Am a Swiss citizen, so am used to beautiful landscapes in the Alps, but I have to say this place was particularly breathtaking (majestic mountains, waterfalls, fields full of wild flowers, and so on). It was a perfect day with blue sky and 27 degrees celsius. Some people were swimming in the lake (altitude of 1578 meters and the water was warm!), others had rented small boats, while others were having what looked like very yummy BBQs. Cows were walking freely and perfectly cohabiting with the people. A beautiful place and day indeed!

If you have a Swiss Pass, you can ride lift up to see this beautiful lake for free. (And if not, its worth the view to pay for day pass). Looks like a Swiss postcard...spectacular! Great hikes await you!

The tram ride was fantastic and the walk to the lake was great. Thanks to Peter at The hayloft, we took this ride and walk and enjoyed a lovely morning.
