This hike was very nice. There were several great spots to take pictures. At the end of the trail it looked like there was a restaurant to eat at. Stunning view, as is Switzerland in general. Love it here!

The trailhead starts at the top of the parking lot. It’s both trail and asphalt! There was a lot of snow at the top still

The hike up was nice. decent elevation gain. there is an asphalt road you can take to the top but it is very steep. there is a trail next to it that makes it easier. made it up in 45 minutes and down in 30. the top was a beautiful lake but was commercial with a restaurant and tram that drives people up. worth the stop to hike up.

It was so pretty!!! The top is a little crowded, but the hike up was beautiful and worth the crowds. We hiked above the lake and it was much more serene. Don’t take the gondola! The trail is to the left of the parking lot! Have fun

The trail around the lake is rated T4 in some sections above the eastern shore. There are steel cables placed in the most critical parts although before entering and after leaving this area the trail requires absolute concentration as some sections are unrecognizable as trail because of rock slides and washes. It’s well worth it if you’re looking for some excitement and spectacular views.

Great views. Heavily trafficked the day we went. Beautiful lake ! Strenuous but not technical

Amazing. I went a few years ago before I knew about this app. The views are breathtaking. Gorgeous hike in the mountains and the water is unlike anything I have ever seen. A must!

It's an amazing trail. In summer you'll get the best view. Don't take gondola from kandersteg to Oeschinensee. It would be little harder, but it's totally worth it. This is the place which makes you fall in love with Switzerland. If you still have time and energy then you can also complete Heuberg loop.

It’s hard to rate any trail in Switzerland less than five stars. However, on this one, bring a bathing suit and a towel so you can swim in the lake to cool off! Stunning views the entire time. The Swiss are truly blessed with the most amazing landscapes!

This is an amazing hike. It did it with my wife and little girl on my back. There’s a lot of vertical, but the views are worth it. And there is a place to stop for a quick beer. Make sure you plan this correctly or you’ll buy an extra 45 minute hike downhill if the gondola has stopped running. Ask me how I know this.
