Hiking trail to Oeschinensee Lake

Discover Oeschinensee: one of the finest mountain lakes in the Alps.

Starting from Kandersteg, you reach Oeschinensee after approximately 1.5 hours of walking. To make things even easier, you can replace the walk up by a trip on the gondola cableway. From the mountain station, it’s then only around a 20-minute stroll to the Alpine lake.
