August 2013

on this trip another outing was to Öschinensee.  We took the train to Kandersteg and then the cable car up to the lake.

The view of the lake once you start walking from the cable car station is breathtaking. It is a little hike and they have buses for those who cannot walk.  Of course for the right price of CHF10 for a 2 minute ride.


Lunch at the upper terrace of the restaurant as the lower level was full and we did not want to wait.

After lunch Stephan and I went on a hike while Johanna and Heiner enjoyed the beautiful weather and the view.
