After the ride on the Luchsingen-Brunnenberg cable car, mount your snowshoes and the trail leads up to the beautifully situated Alp Oberblegi.

As you walk up, you feel almost like the mountain rises infront of you. The lake itself lies snow-covered between boulders on a terrace, with the alpine huts a little away.

The Oberblegisee is also worth a visit in summer: the deep blue mountain lake, which can be reached from Braunwald via Bächialp, is an ideal place to cool off during hot summer days and is a nice spot for a short or longer break.
