Blausee (“Blue Lake”) is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Switzerland but unfortunately with a very sad legend. It revolves around a maiden who unfortunately lost her lover, the Shepherd, to a tragic death. Night after night, the inconsolable maid rowed out to the middle of the lake to mourn her loss and one day was found at the bottom of the lake, which had mysteriously changed its colour to the intense deep blue shade of the enamored maiden’s eyes. Visit and find out more about this legend!
