The untouched mountains of Oeschinensee is a UNESCO site. Simple, quaint, beautiful. Worth a visit. Don't forget the Rodelbahn at Oeschinensee.

Take the cable car, unless you are bonkers, and a 20 minute walk down the lake and the most incredible view awaits you. If you are unfit there is a little electric bus that will take you back to the cable car every half hour.
