The high Alpine plateau of the Melchsee-Frutt has two deep-blue lakes that stand out brightly against the craggy peaks surrounding the area. It is a classic area for hikers and mountaineers of all levels. There is a 90-minute hike which offers visitors a fantastic view all the way to Mt. Titlis and gives some geological insight as to how the valley came to be.
The small holiday region of Melchsee-Frutt / Melchtal / Kerns lies at the heart of central Switzerland, surrounded by lakes and mountains. The centre for tourism in this expansive region is the high valley of Melchsee-Frutt at an altitude of 2000 metres, with its traffic-free, family-friendly resort on the shores of the little mountain lake.
