The panorama hike around Oeschinensee is the best way to soak up the majesty of the Swiss Alps. It's peaceful and quiet, and without the noise and crowds, it truly felt like we had the mountains to ourselves. I would also recommend taking a dip (or a swim, if you're up for it) in Oeschinen Lake either before or after your hike. Its waters are freezing cold even in the summer, but it is extremely refreshing. Moreover, taking a dip in cold water does wonders for your blood circulation and overall cardiovascular health. It takes about 3-5 hours to complete the hike depending on your pace, but we started at around 3 in the afternoon and were down before sunset. It's a fairly easy hike so it's very suitable for families, and the young and old alike.
