The 7 Natural Wonders of Switzerland

The 7 Natural Wonders of Switzerland

While Switzerland may be famous for producing the world’s best cheese, watches, pocket knives, and chocolate, perhaps the largest attraction to the European nation of Switzerland is its awe-inspiring natural beauty. In no particular order of importance, the following is a compiled list of the top Seven Natural Wonders that stand out as the best of the best in Switzerland.

1. Oeschinensee

As part of the Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn UNESCO World Heritage Site, Oeschinensee is a horseshoe-shaped tiny lake situated in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland. While the lake may be small at just over 1 square kilometer, it has been perfectly formed by Mother Nature and ideally positioned above Kandersteg at an elevation of 1,578 meters. The shimmering turquoise waters of Oeschinensee also enable a mirror reflection of the peaks along its coast, towering more than 3,000 meters into the clouds. From Kandersteg, visitors can take the trek up to the lake by a gondola lift to catch some picture perfect views from every angle.
