Excursion destination: Blausee Lake

Visiting mystical Blausee Lake

A mystical nature park with the beautiful deep-blue Blausee Lake and romantic walk path. The lake’s fabulous colour is the stuff of legends, and the view underwater from a glass bottom boat is a one-of-a-kind experience

Despite its small size, Blausee Lake is one of the best-known mountain lakes in Switzerland. The lake is located in a 20-hectare wooded nature park with walking paths, campfire spots and picnic areas. The water in the lake is crystal clear because it comes from underground sources. Tree trunks and boulders that extend as much as 12 metres down into the lake appear to be only just under the surface.

According to legend, the lake’s blue colour comes from the blue eyes of a young maiden who walked into the lake because she was grieving the death of her beloved. Ever since then, the lake has remained blue in memory of the sad and unlucky maiden. A sculpture made by the artist Raffael Fuchs in 1998 lies in the lake and pays tribute to the legend and the maiden.

The Nature Park Blausee

The surounding area of the Blausee has a lot in store: A mystic nature park, with walkways, fireplaces, picknick areas and a playground for the kids. Discover the Blausee museum or the lake with our glass-bottom boat – all that in the middle of a unique backdrop.
