This is an easy walk from First cable car stop so is very popular. The views are great and the walk through alpine meadows is a wonderful experience. Just keep going up after the lake and you will find peace and quiet as well.

Stopped at Bachalpsee Lake on our way from Faulhorn back to Berghaus Bort. It was later in the day and very beautiful. Went for a quick swim, it was "refreshing" but felt great. Not too busy and about 45 min from First.

Despite the poor weather, we hiked out to the lake. It was a gorgeous location with beautiful views. Well worth the 45 minutes.

Looking for a WOW spot? This is it. We got engaged here on a beautifully clear day overlooking snow covered Alps. Seriously beautiful.

Very easy to just show up. I believe it begins running around 8 and last one at 6 pm. I would recommend starting as early as possible.
