Just beside the Lake, there is a great picnic/grill area for families. Also, a big playground for kids and smooth walkways around the Lake, accessible with a stroller.
Hotel Blausee Restaurant
In our first visit to Blausee Lake, we had lunch at the Restaurant Blausee Hotel. I have to say that wasn’t good – what surprises me a lot.
Despite the high prices for the main courses, around Fr.35/40, I’ve ordered a fish, and this was extremely salty. The service was slow, and no one came for asking how the food was, standard practice in Switzerland. I had to eat; I had no choice.
For my son, I’ve ordered a Kids Menu, also on the highest border of usual prices in Switzerland, Fr.15. The Kids portion was so small that my son cried when the food was finish; my two years old was still very hungry. For him, I’ve ordered some more fish, and the Restaurant offered the Kids Menu for free.
We haven’t a good experience at the Hotel Blausee, but we ate with a view =) Next time, no doubt I will take a picnic and some sausages with me!
Events at Blausee Lake
Every year in June, there is an Open-Air Cinema at the Blausee. It should be amazing!
