Switzerland doesn’t have any access to the sea, but they are very lucky to have one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.
There are some big lakes by Lucerne, Zurich, Geneve, but for me the most beautiful ones are small Alps lakes 🙂
One of these small lakes is Blausee which is not very far from Interlaken.
One disadvantage of Blausee is that you have to buy a ticket to visit it, it costs 8 CHF, but hey, it’s better they keep such places as they are and we can enjoy it for years to come 🙂
When you go from entrance to Blausee, you see quite a lot of small mossy paths all around, it really looks like from The Lord of the Rings movies, the place where Hobbits would live 🙂 The big rocks are so mossy that they look like big marshmallows 🙂
The lake itself is so crystal clear that you can see all the fishes swimming around and there are hundreds of them, it really reminds me of Japanese ponds 🙂 Fishes are different kinds, different colours, different sizes – simply beautiful.
Despite the fact that the lake is pretty small, there’s a chance to go on a boat and swim around 🙂
Next to the lake there is a restaurant, very small old museum and a kiosk 🙂 And of course the lake is next to the big Alps mountains wall.
You can take a small tour around the lake on which you are going to meet a little farm of Alpacas 🙂 For me it’s still very strange that they keep so many Alpacas here, especially it was popular in Grindelwald 🙂
Alpacas there are quite small and I would say very friendly, you can go very close to them and even touch their soft fur 🙂
The other thing next to Blausee is the fish farm where you can see huge ponds where they grow different kind of fishes. Fishes are very well seen there and they stay in huge groups which kind of reminds me of Natural Geography documentaries 🙂
So, yeah, give Blausee a chance and enjoy nice afternoon there 🙂 It has a BBQ place, sunbathing place as well, so you are going to have a really good time:)
