Excursion to Oeschinen Lake

Embark on a tobogganing adventure together and discover the unique environment surrounding Oeschinen Lake.

On the toboggan run, your good mood just gets better and better with every metre you descend towards the valley. At the bottom, rowing boats invite you to enjoy time on the lake, and the beautiful mountain scenery offers a great variety of walking tours.
