The Alps, beautiful little villages along the landscape and lakes, mountains upon mountains… And Caumasee in Flims, the Swiss Caribbean in the middle of a forest. It couldn’t be more perfect!
Location: Flims, Caumasee – Switzerland
How to get there: by car (easiest), train
This place is a must visit if you’re travelling through Europe and coming past Switzerland. I never thought it would really look like in the pictures until I saw it myself.
It’s just a short drive from the South of Germany and it’s easy to reach by car, you simply need the Swisse „Vignette“ (37€ / year). There’s a parking spot nearby from which you can walk down a lovely path to that wonderful lake. The walk takes around 15 minutes and you’ll be able to either walk down to the lake or take a lift (which is for free).
The best time to come here is during the warm European months (April – September) as you can spend your day sunbathing, going for a hike or maybe even going for a swim in the ice cold water. It’s also beautiful during winter time but you’ll probably be freezing cold and there’s not much around to do.
