Oberaarsee and Oberaargletscher
The Oberaargletscher (German pronunciation: [ˈoːbərɑːrˌglɛtʃər]), literally "Upper Aare-Glacier" is a 4 km (2.5 mi) long glacier (2005) situated in the Bernese Alps in the canton of Berne in Switzerland. In 1973 it had an area of 5.82 km2 (2.25 sq mi). The lower end of this glacier lies almost 400 m higher than the (original) lower end of neighbouring Unteraargletscher. Of course, the reserve lake Oberaarsee and the hotel near the lake ar much younger than the name of the glacier.
