Out of the hustle and bustle of the city, into the enjoyment of nature and the tranquillity of the mountains.

Experience an unforgettable day trip at one of the most famous mountain lakes in Switzerland, above Kandersteg.

The area above Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy and relax in one of the mountain guesthouses directly on the lake. Or would you rather barbecue or picnic? Simply unique!

Spontaneously on the way…?

Visit our barbecue & picnic shop directly on Lake Oeschinen and buy your utensils for barbecuing, picnicking or chilling. Firewood, sausages, chips, bread, salad, chocolate, ice tea or beer – here you will find almost everything.

We are also happy to make a picnic basket or a complete barbecue fun ready for you.
