Oeschinen Lake

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.

Reviewed By Irrequieta - Geneva, Switzerland

Easily accessible for families with small children. The lake can be reached after a 30min walk or in 5min via a small electric bus (8CHF each way). The views are breathtaking and there is a nice restaurant by the lake to enjoy a meal. Not to be missed!

Summer Gemel Schweiz

Summer Sledding Mannlichen Enjoy +6 km exciting and safe sledding fun. Ride the unique Summer Gemel sled down Mount Mannlichen. Zoom past smooth slopes and green meadows full of wild flowers and fluttering butterflies. Feel alive and free amid one the most amazing alpine scenery. All it takes are solid shoes and fitted outdoor cloths. Everything else is taken care of. Due to the construction of the new cable car on the mount Mannlichen (2019) we are not running this summer. But we'll be opening up again in May 2020 with a refurbished race track - Yeah! See you then again. P.S.
