The way is the aim

The journey by car to the valley station of the Kandersteg-Oeschinensee AG cable car takes you through our beautiful village of Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland. By train you enjoy the idyllic landscape through the Kandertal valley.

Only park in the designated parking spaces! Otherwise a fine by the municipality of Kandersteg cannot be ruled out.

Lake Oeschinen cannot be reached by car!

Spiez: Follow the signs to Kandersteg and stay on the main road. Directly after the small bridge vis à vis Käthi-Sport-Mode turn left and follow the road keeping left until you reach the car park directly at the valley station.

Lötschberg car transport: Follow the signs to Kandersteg. The journey takes you through Bahnhofstrasse to the main road, turn left. At the crossroads vis à vis Käthy Sport + Mode, turn right and keep left until you reach the car park directly at the valley station.

At the entrance to Kandersteg, there are also parking spaces "Im Chehr", which are recommended especially in good weather and therefore when there are large crowds. A short walk of about 5-10 minutes follows.

Special parking spaces are available for coaches/ touring cars at the valley station.

For a stress-free journey, we recommend the BLS Lötschberger adventure train. You can find the timetable here. From Kandersteg railway station you can reach the valley station of the Oeschinensee gondola lift on foot (15 min.) or by local bus (8 min.):

Follow the signs towards Oeschinensee from the railway station. Straight ahead towards the main road, turn left. Use the left fork at the bridge. Then follow the road all the way to the valley station.

The cable car from Kandersteg to Lake Oeschinen is connected to public transport - so don't forget your GA or Half-Fare Card. The Junior ticket is valid and entitles children accompanied by a parent to free travel.
