From the railway station the route continues to Oeschinensee base station. You reach Oeschinen in just a few minutes with the modern Oeschinensee cable car. (altitude of 1,682 m). The hiking route leads to Oeschinensee from the foot of the impressive Blüemlisalp mountain range. If the ice is thick enough you may also meet ice fishers on the mountain lake. An insider tip: make a detour on the left shore of the lake to Eisturm and enjoy nature at its most picturesque!

 

Return

An easy hike back to the cable car or on the fast sledging route down into the valley. The footpath to the village is closed in winter!
