Somewhere between Heidi's homeland and Flumserberg Lake Walen

Set between the slopes of two mountains, against a spectacular Alpine backdrop, Lake Walen stretches from Weesen to Walenstadt. Sit back and gaze in astonishment at the deep blue water as you breathe in the pure air by the lake. That's one way to round off a wonderful day's hike in Flumserberg.
