Melchsee-Frutt

The family-friendly resort of Melchsee-Frutt lies at an altitude of 1900 metres on the Melchsee (lake) in a scenic and lush high valley. Summer access is possible via a narrow road, but the main mode of transport is the cableway.
The starting point of the journey to Melchsee-Frutt is the valley floor between the Sarner and Vierwaldstättersee (Lakes Sarnen and Lucerne) with the ascent to the Stöckalp, the lower terminus of the cableway that leads up to the lush mountain valley. The sunny small village of Melchsee-Frutt lies on the shore of the Melchsee lake and has barbecue facilities, children’s zoo and playgrounds as well as various theme paths and is a certified family-friendly resort. .

Summer

the central situation between the Bernese Oberland resort of Hasliberg and the central Swiss resort of Engelberg makes Melchsee-Frutt a popular hiking region. The high hiking trail Hasliberg – Melchsee Frutt – Engelberg is counted amongst the classic hikes. The six-hour four-lake stage from Melchsee-Frutt via Tannalp, Engstlenalp, Jochpass and Trübsee to Engelberg is particularly attractive. Four chairlifts and cableways allow hikers to vary the hiking distance according to aptitude and level of fitness.Frutt is a sea of flowers in summer. The deep blue and trout-rich mountain lakes Melchsee and Tannensee are scenic highlights and a paradise for anglers. The climbing garden thrills climbers with its varying degrees of difficulty and imposing rock face.

Winter

The Melchsee-Frutt winter sports region guarantees snow and covers altitudes from 1080 to 2255 metres. The high valley with sun-drenched winter-walking trails and cross-country ski runs is flanked by two ski regions: broad and sunny pistes run from the Balmeregghorn and Erzegg (with freestyle park) down to the high valley floor. The opposite Bonistock has steep pistes that run down to Stöckalp, covering over 1000 metres in altitude. The 8-kilometre-long toboggan run down to Stöckalp is a delicacy for sledging enthusiasts. Children can enjoy themselves on the «magic carpet» and ski roundabout at the Fruttli-Park.

Highlights
