The reservoir in the Göscheneralp valley lies at alt. 1792 metres in the midst of scenic hiking and climbing country.
Created 60 years ago and containing some 75 million cubic metres of water, Lake Göscheneralp serves as a reservoir for local power generator Kraftwerk Göschenen AG.
A narrow but easily accessible path runs around it, passing through alpine pastures and moorland. Lake Göscheneralp can be reached by PostBus and car.
