The Räterichsbodensee is a reservoir in the Grimsel area in the Bernese Oberland with a volume of around 25 million cubic meters. It is located at about 1767 m above sea level. The water from the Räterichsbodensee is in the power plants Handeck Handeck 2 and 3 of the power plants Oberhasli used.

In September 2007, the large-format picture of the water maiden Mélisande by the artist Pierre Mettraux was completed on the dam of the Räterichsbodensee .
