We have been there with out children many times. From Spiez you can reach Blausee-Mitholz by train in about 30 minutes. The lake itself is quite small, very blue and the water is extremely pure and clear. Trouts are swimming around and you can see many petrified trees in the water. A small and free boat trip is fun for children. You can visit a trout nursery and they keep some animals. There is a restaurant where you can also buy trouts to grill them on public fireplaces. There's also a small playgroud for children.
The surrounding nature is very nice, the part with woods and rocks even have a mysterious atmosphere (to my taste that is). Small hikes are possible even with youger children going slightly up and down. The river Kander is very near.
You might consider visiting Riegelsee zoo (outisde the premises of the lake), about 1 km. to the north.
Enjoy your stay,
