This wonderful turquoise blue lake is situated in the Bernese Highlands in Switzerland.
The saga says that it got its color from tears escaping the blue eyes of a young brokenhearted maiden mourning the loss of her beloved.
“There it was, right in front of their eyes. Transparent and crystal clear, like a rare jewel: the Blausee.”
– Lyrics from “The tale of the Blausee” written by Lilly Hess
