Formed long ago after a rock fall, the Oeschinen Lake above Kandersteg is particulary worthy of being called a mountain lake. To the east and the south, the steep rock faces of the Blüemlisalp, Oeschinenhorn, Fründenhorn and Doldenhorn - all three-thousand-meter peaks - reach nearly all the way down to the lake surface.
The rock faces of the Jungfrau massif drop almost vertically to the bottom of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Huge vertical differences of up to 3200 meters occur within a short horizontal distance of a few kilometers.
