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.
