Take the UNESCO electric bus to the Oeschinensee mountain lake

By far the easiest way to reach the lovely Oeschinensee mountain lake is by the environmentally friendly electric bus.

The little blue bus travels between the mountain station of the gondola cableway and the Berghotel Oeschinensee. Climb aboard and enjoy the 10-minute trip with stunning views over snowy peaks and flower-filled Alpine meadows.
