  • The Seealpsee is a beautiful lake in the middle of the mountains. At the foot of the mountain there is a large car park and railway station. There are three ways to reach the lake from the parking lot. The first way is to enter the path asphalt degree of difficulty is hardly advanced you can meet very many families with small children. The second path leads parallel to the asphalt road but is much more picturesque and leads through the forest. Intermediate level. The third way is to climb the railway to the top of the mountain and Descenter down to the Seealpsee. This route is certainly the most drudiest but also the most picturesque, along the way it passes one of the most famous restaurants in Switzerland or Aescher. On the way back you can use the first or second route.

  • The lake is super refreshing! Also very funny is that there are Little Fish Inside that eat the dead skin from you feet! We were there at 3rd of June and the lake had about 16 degrees C. Was very cool after a Long hike.
  • One day visit place to go. Nice sightseeing and good price when you finally up there to have a Beer or coffee at the only restaurant next to the lake.
