Beautiful and level hiking route around the Arnensee, where you can also go bathing.
The Arnensee is surrounded by magnificent mountains and is about 25 minutes by car from Gstaad. The walking route around the lake is level and hence ideal for families. There are three barbecue sites at the lake and the Huus am Arnensee restaurant is the ideal base for fishing or bathing. Pedalo and boat rental at the restaurant.
Good footwear, snacks to savor during a break - why not a Fondue-Backpack?
