Bachalpsee Lake Reviews
Was to fast do to heavy rain but totally worthwhile the visit and the hike will do it again on bike and friends more »
Beautiful lake with Mountain View! Took the gondola from Grindelwald First. First 15 min walk requires some effort, the rest (about 30 more minutes) is pretty flat and leads to the lake. It was such..... more »
Breathtaking. Definitely worth the one hour walk.
If you are taking the hike or the cable car to Grindelwald First, make sure you take sometime to reach this lake as well. By far the best location for some amazing reflection photography of the swiss alps at a distance. Loved the short hike from First to this lake.
