While exploring summer in Switzerland last year, we visited a small town away in Graubünden called Flims. The geography of this town attracts many visitors during summer. Families, hikers, cyclists- all throng here to soak in the summer sun.
During our day’s visit to Lake Cauma (or Caumasee), we saw hoards of locals with their picnic baskets and swimwear. The walk to the lake itself was breathtakingly beautiful with the sun angularly filtering through the grand trees. And even though the lake was crowded, it did not diminish the beauty of the turquoise waters.
In Switzerland, beauty supersedes itself so many times that sometimes I run out of expressions to substantiate it. I wish we saw more of Flims and its stunning landscape (like Rhine Gorge and Lake Cresta). Until then, I shall mediate upon ‘the jewel of Flims’.
Good to know
-Visitors have to take the lift to the entrance of Lake Cauma.
-Adults pay CHF 12 and children CHF 6 to enter.
-Visitors are allowed to swim in designated places (called bathing beach) during summer.
-There is a restaurant by the lake which serves local beer and is well stocked with food.
-The lift runs from 0800hrs to 1700hrs from June to August.
-Flims Waldhaus Caumasee is the closest bus stop to the lake.
Does Lake Cauma justify Switzerland’s beauty?
