On the road from Berne to Zermatt (Mattehorn) lies a natural wonder called Blausee (Blue Lake). Thanks to its very special tyrquise blue colour, the source of which is subterranean springs, Blausee is one of the best known mountain lakes in Switzerland. The lake is located in the midst of a 20 hectare large nature park with a landscape formed by a rock slide that led to the creation of the lake. There is also a legend around this lake about a beautiful maiden with deep blue eyes, who died of a broken heart. The deep blue colour of the Blausee reminds us about the love of this maiden, which persists beyond death.
Just look at the pictures, the lake and its surroundings are beautiful. You can take a ride in a boat around the lake, check out the trout farm or enjoy a meal straight on the coast of the lake.
Freshly grilled trout was mmmh… so delicious!
