A mountain lake near Bern

Hi

Can anyone suggest one that does not need hours of hiking

I've been to Kandersteg and the scenery there with the lake, and the mountains in the background and steam with rugged terrain by the station is like my favorite landscape

But I think ive been five times or so, is there another sweet spot near bern (1hr approx) or in interlaken

Re: A mountain lake near Bern

I'd recommend the Stockhorn if you've not already been there.
There are two lakes to walk round and nice views at the top.
You can get a "Hiking Ticket" which gets you to the middle station and back and you can chose to walk to the top from there and get the cable car back or get the cable car all the way to the top and walk down to the middle station.

It is getting late in the season now so check everything is open on the day you choose to travel

I second this.
And the hike all the way up, from the mid station, is super fun (on the "left" side, not right).

Re: A mountain lake near Bern

I recommend Bachalpsee above Grindelwald.
Easy to reach by cable car from Grindelwald up to First and from First the trail to Bachalpsee is easy - approx. 1 hour hike.
Fantastic scenery:
