Another very funny way to go to the second largest barrier lake in Switzerland. Once on top you can also visit the finding spot of dinosaurs traces (attention: 2.5 h of walk one way). Definitely worth a trip.

The dam is compelling but the journey up is epic. Worth the money just for the 3 train combo. Joyous
