  • This is about an hour's walk (one way) from the First station. Easy-ish and quite popular so you will see many other walkers (and cows too). The lake is quite scenic and you do get nice views along...

  • A stunning mountain lake, reached after an easy one-hour hike from Grindelwald First. It's also possible to swim here if you're brave enough for the cold.
