The blue lake

Blausee (literally: Blue Lake) is a small lake in the Kander valley above Kandergrund at 887 m, near the river Kander. The lake has an area of 0.64 ha. The lake can be reached by bus from the train stations of Frutigen or Kandersteg. The bus come about every hour to Blausee-Mitholz, it was about 15 minutes scenic ride.
The park has walks for the whole family, picnic places and campfire sites, a unique alpine trout breeding farm and various restaurants in which the trout are served fresh from the water, and boat trips on the fascinatingly blue lake. A day on the Blue Lake is a day"s holiday!
Opening hours:
summer: open daily from 10 am to 9 pm
winter: closed on Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday - Sunday from 10 am to 9 pm.
Summer highlight: Open-air movie theater at the lake. There is 5 Fr (Swiss Franc) charge per person to enter the park. However, it's nothing compare to the hefty 12 Fr charge per-person for return bus fare!
Now, there is a lot of blue river and lake in Switzerland, but nothing as blue and as clear as this! be ready for a surprise....!!

And we did ride the boat. It's about 15 min to circle the lake, and the fee already included on the entrance fee. On early morning ride, you can see the fishes underneath the water as the boat has partial glass floor. blausee10
There is a fine dining place next to the lake, whereby the serve a delicious, fresh trout (doesn't come from the lake, but they have a separate trout farm). Look at my meal!blausee11
The bill come to freaking 74.10 Fr (about 45 GBP) a dinner for 2 person.... GOODNESS ME!!! I recommend the lake, but not the restaurant!
