Mountain adventures for the whole family

The family-friendly destination of Melchsee-Frutt lies at 1920 metres above sea level. Since 1865, the high plateau has been a climatic health resort and inspires with its idyllic mountain lakes.

The unspoilt countryside creates the ideal environment for relaxation and is a pleasant contrast to the hectic pace of everyday life in the city. The immediate surroundings of Lucerne and Lake Lucerne offer numerous attractions, historical destinations and cultural events throughout the year.

hiking region

The location between the Bernese Oberland holiday destination of Hasliberg and the holiday resort of Engelberg in Central Switzerland makes Melchsee-Frutt a popular hiking area. The Hasliberg - Melchsee-Frutt - Engelberg high-altitude hike is one of the great hiking classics. The six-hour four-lake section from Melchsee-Frutt via Tannalp, Engstlenalp, Jochpass and Trübsee to Engelberg is particularly popular. In summer the Frutt is a sea of flowers. The deep blue and trout-rich Melchsee and Tannensee mountain lakes are not only popular with passionate fishermen.
