Travel Tips for visiting Oeschinen Lake

Situated at an altitude of 1578m, the air is clean and refreshing. Here in the Bernese Alps, Lake Oeschinen lies quietly in Kandersteg. The colour of the lake, which is 56 metres deep, varies from blue to green to turquoise. The shades change depending on the position of the sun, the brightness and the vantage point. Sometimes you have to tell your friends, "This picture is not Photoshopped". The colours of Lake Oeschinen are truly spectacular. Lake Oeschinen is a popular destination for day-trippers. But there are only two hotels and camping is not allowed, so you can spend your nights and mornings in seclusion. How to get to Lake Oeschinen From Zurich, it takes about 2.5 hours by train. Please plan appropriately, especially if you are planning to do a loop hike. If you take the Lake Oeschinen cable car, it is a short ride from Kandersteg in the valley to the terminal at Mount Oeschinen. Don't get too excited just yet, as you will have to work for the lake at this time. Sometimes the best things in life you have to work for them. A two-kilometre walk through the valley will bring you to your destination. How to take a panoramic hike on Lake Oeschinen The 8.5 km panoramic hike around Lake Oeschinen offers magnificent views of the lake and the Bernese mountains. This loop may be long for inexperienced hikers, but is still doable for moderate hikers like us. The journey is said to take around three hours. However, it may take longer due to the more gorgeous panoramic views and picnic spots. There are many lookouts on this loop, which you may have seen on social media. Think of a tree or two overlooking the emerald lake. It is a unique backdrop. If you choose the clockwise route: there are goats, panoramic views, picnic breaks, sheep grazing, birdsong and a small waterfall. Translated with (free version)
