Bachalpsee Lake reviews
Beautiful Alpine lake but it took a big longer to reach than my brother in law and I were expecting. A guidebook said 50 minutes but it was more like an hour 20 with stops for photos and breaks... more »
Bachalpsee is an extremely scenic lake and can be reached by an easy hike from First. Definitely worth visiting. 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.
