Naturpark Gantrisch - SwitzerlandMobility Winter Hiking: Seerundweg Schwarzsee.
Surrounded by limestone mountains with sheer faces, the route encircles the romantic Schwarzsee.

The majestic Kaiseregg stands proudly on the east bank of the Schwarzee. The Spitzfluh stands to the south while the Schwyberg chain creates an imposing presence to the west. This impressive landscape encircles the lake, which is just 10 metres deep, and forms the backdrop for the walking trail. The black water is immediately obvious. According to legend, the water of the Sense Oberland mountain lake is as dark as it is because a giant bathed its feet in it one day.
