    Easy Walk along Lungern Lake

    Kaiserstuhl - Bürglen - Dundelbach Falls - Obsee - Lungern

    Easy Walk along Lungern Lake

    Kaiserstuhl - Bürglen - Dundelbach Falls - Obsee - Lungern

    This is a very easy walk along the West Side of Lungern Lake, a very pretty lake at any time of the year. It is a turquoise jewel embedded in pastoral green hills with a backdrop of the Bernese Alps, especially spectacular on a crisp and sunny late winter day.

    Most of the walk is along a wide forest road, and about halfway along the lake is a large area with picnic tables.

    At the Southwest end of the lake, a small path takes you off the main path for a look at the Dundelbach Falls, before continuing through the community of Obsee, and heading up through Lungern to the train station.

    What makes this area particularly attractive is that it is higher up (elevation) than the other communities further North in the Sarner Valley, and while the latter might be covered by a thick layer of fog, the air clears as you rise to the altitude of Lungern Lake. The walk can be done in winter as well, if there is little snow.

    Geographically, Lungern Lake is almost at the very center of Switzerland.
