Explore the Nature of Bern – Blausee

Last Saturday the 14th of November my girlfriend and I went on a trip to explore the nature of Bern. Arrived in Bern, the capital city of Switzerland, we decided to take the train to Kandersteg. When you get off the train a big mountain chain appears in front of you. It’s allready a mind blowing view but that was not all.

We took the bus to the Blausee station. The Blausee (German for Blue Lake) is an adventure for all senses. Here you will enjoy the interaction of silence and relaxation in a mystical landscape together.

Despite it’s small size of 6’400 m² it’s one of the best-known mountain lakes in Switzerland. It’s a popular excursion destination in the „Berner Oberland“. The lake is located in the small village called Kandergrund. Elevation above sea level is 887 m.

There it was, right in front of their eyes. Transparent and crystal clear, like a rare jewel: the Blausee.

– Lyrics from “The tale of the Blausee” written by Lilly Hess

The surounding area of the Blausee has a lot in store: A mystic nature park, with walkways, fireplaces, picknick areas and a playground for the kids. How about a boat tour with the glass-bottom boat – all that in the middle of a unique scenery.

As well there is a restaurant, sit on a laid table, enjoy a fine meal with a good wine and appreciate the view over the turquoise blue and crystal clear water of the Blausee.

The choice is yours: Try an organic trout form the Blausee, a good piece of meat from the region, a sophisticated vegetarian dish or enjoy one of the creative meals.

Sadly we were not hungry but we had a good coffee served on the terrace. I hope we can come back and taste the food of this romantic restaurant.

The Blausee is a dream spot for a photographer and more over perfect to get some representative couple photos:

Open year-round from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. The Blausee nature park is a juwel of rare beauty – maintenance and care are financed through the gained revenue of the entry fees.

    Wow! that park looks stunning and of course so do your pictures!
    I’m going to visit my best friend next month, she lives near Zurich for a few years now. I’m going to ask her if she knows how to get to this park, I must see it!

    I do have a question, though, you said that from 24th of march the entry price is 7 francs, is the park not open at this time of the year? Sorry if it’s a dumb question haha

      Hi Fabio, the park entry is free during winter from 27th October 2015 till 23 March 2016 and it’s open.

      How to get to the Blausee from Zurich:
      Take the train from Zürich HB to Bern. Change the train in Bern. Take the RegioExpress 4169 to Frutigen.
      In Frutigen you have a Bus (230) to the Blausee.

      Duration is around 2h.

      Have fun in Switzlerand!
