Map of Winter activities at the Oeschinensee

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

Not for nothing is the area around the lake in the Unesco World Heritage Jungfrau Aletsch. The impressive nature, the snow-covered winter hiking trails, the fresh mountain air and as a highlight the frozen lake… Lake Oeschinen calls! For beginners and connoisseurs, the small and snow-sure ski area offers great pistes. The lake is completely frozen from December to the end of March and can be explored on foot on one of the Ice Walks. Treat yourself to something delicious to eat in one of the mountain guesthouses near the mountain station or in the mountain hotel directly on the lake. Simply Unique!
