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.

Go up on the gondola then enjoy a lovely walk down to this lake. Makes you feel good to be alive!!! This is a wonderful, scenic area.

Catch the cable cable car and then it is an easy walk to view the lake. You can walk further to obtain better views

Probably the prettiest lake I'd seen in years....crystal clear blue color that was like glass. Settled in amongst the Alps behind....indescribable. Hike to the lake is not difficult but then again, not easy. Great workout with a restaurant to replenish your fuel.

i went several years ago...and it wasnt in the winter...it was in the summer and it was one of the most memorable serene walks of my life. the scenery was inspiring, majestic...the walk not so hard....by that i mean i walked around the lake and not climbing hills/mountainsides which would have rendered the trip far too taxing. it is several years ago and i remember it like yesterday. would go again in a minute!!!!

The vistas were amazing. Great hiking around the lake up into the mountains. As you walk from the lifts toward the lake, we took a path off to the left that took you down to the lake and then up around the left side of the lake. It was quite steep starting out (both down and then up) but then leveled out. On a clear day this is a magnificent hike. We hoped to eat at the restaurant out about an hour and 1/2 but it is closed on Mondays. Take a lunch with you, just in case. After the hike we came back to the lake and ate a nice lunch looking out over the lake. Beautiful!
