Bannalpsee, Engelberg – An easy day trip without a hike

Bannalpsee, Engelberg – An easy day trip without a hike

The mountain reservoir of Bannalpsee is one of the best quick trips to be done from Engelberg, Lucerne or Zurich. Bannalpsee is a hidden gem – when we went in July, it was nearly deserted and we had the whole place all to ourselves. While there are several hiking options, if you are a more laid back traveler (like me!) you can reach Bannalpsee taking a very short walk. If you are so inclined, Bannalpsee is one of the best hikes near Zurich.

Bachalpsee – Hike from Grindelwald First to the prettiest Swiss mountain lake

Bachalpsee – Hike from Grindelwald First to the prettiest Swiss mountain lake

The Bachalpsee hike encompasses all that’s most beautiful about Switzerland – stunning snow capped mountains, lush green meadows & valleys, crystal clear lakes, and wild flowers, all to the soundtrack of ringing cow bells! It is one of the best places to visit in the Jungfrau region and my personal favourite place in Switzerland.
This lake makes for a perfect day trip and a fantastic outdoor activity cum beautiful hike from Interlaken, Lucerne or even Zurich. In fact, this is one of the best, and easiest hiking trails in Grindelwald & the Jungfrau region. Plus you also get to do the unique Cliff Walk at Grindelwald First! I would prioritise the Bachalpsee hike over visiting Jungfraujoch because it offers a more varied experience and is much cheaper.
