The word Blausee literally means Blue Lake. One look at the clear blue waters of Blausee and you will know why the name stuck. The waters are clear, transparent blue, like some finely cut diamond from Guntur. The blue lake is endowed with almost magical and mythical appearance. Surrounding the clear blue waters of the lake is an enchanting and yet strangely romantic forest. An ideal location for a quick getaway from the maddening city life, this lake with its unique blue color is located in Bernese Oberland, very close to the Kander River. There is a small Grand Hotel that has 17 rooms and two restaurants.
