This place has a lot of attractions in one place. Its a typical piece of Switzerland for adults and special for kids. A very relaxing and beautiful place to be for the day or in the hotel overnight.

Just 1+ hour from Lucerne is a beautiful alp, Melchsee-Frutt where the locals go for their winter skiing. As first timers, we had lots of fun enjoying the sledge riding in the amazing view. Worth visiting when you are near Lucerne.

I can only recommend to take the cable-car to Melchsee-Frutt from the Stöckalp parking lot. From there, you can have a light walk around 1,2 or 3 lakes. If you are looking for something harder, just walk to the Balmeregghorn where you will have a wonderful view on some of the glacier. Then walk to Tannalp and go back to... More

Beautiful place with amazing views, great family skiing area with good lessons, not all joined up that well, some parts where you need to carry skis/boards to reach next tow or chairlift, some lovely wide runs

This is one of my favorite hikes in the world. We catch the Swiss Post bus, from Meiringen to Engstlenalp. You start the hike by passing the stunning Engsteln See, up to the Joch Pass, and over the ridge to Melchsee-Frutt. Melchsee-Frutt is a beautiful small town on a Swiss Alpen lake. A stunning feature, for photographers, is the small... More

My whole family and I loved Melchsee Frutt! After taking the gondola up, we walked around Melchsee, the closest lake, and were surprised to see cows just walking around, sometimes even on the road. We hiked around for about 2 hours, but we would have loved to stay longer, even for the whole day because it was a perfect temperature... More
