Hiking Highlight

Recommended by 56 out of 57 hikers

    The Schottensee and the Wildsee are the two most beautiful on the 5-Seen-hike. The colors of the lakes are really nice cheesy and almost surreal. Depending on the incidence of light, the colors change and the mountains are reflected miraculously in the lakes: very impressive and simply unbelievably beautiful.

    If you start early and walk the tour the other way around, you will probably only find a few other hikers at the Schottensee, before the Wildsee is teeming with people.

    The color of the water surface is just wonderfully beautiful, depending on the weather, the lake is for me the most beautiful on this tour. From there, the ascent leads us to Schwarzsee

    Looks a bit like God's own infinity pool. The lake with the mountain ranges in the background is a very beautiful panorama.

    One of the most beautiful tours in Switzerland, mountain experience, good footwear and a bit of fitness is required

    Glacier green water with super reflection. For swimming, but usually plenty of cold, as you have to be very tough

    The 5 lake hike is simply an absolute highlight - every lake a gem.
