Intro

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 shores of the little mountain lake.

The Melchtal stretches from Kerns between the Sarnersee and Lake Lucerne southwards to the Stöckalp, where a cableway (suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs) gives access to the invitingly green, high valley of the Melchsee-Frutt. The sunny little village on the shores of the Melchsee has plenty of barbecue spots, a playground and a pleasant walking path to Tannalp. Another highlight is the Fruttli Train, offering popular adventure rides between Melchsee-Frutt and Tannalp.

Picturesque Melchtal, once a of pilgrimage, is home to the Benedictine Monastery Convent of St. Niklaus von Flüe, named after the hermit popularly known as Bruder Klaus. The huge sports complex in the Melchtal is geared primarily towards group travellers, clubs and schools.

Winter

The altitude of the car-free winter sport area Melchsee-Frutt ranges from 1080 m to 2255 m. This high valley, with sunny winter hiking trails and cross-country ski tracks, is flanked by two ski areas: Balmeregghorn and Erzegg, with broad sunny slopes and the freestyle park fruttpark.ch. Steeper slopes run from Mount Bonistock down to Stöckalp, with a difference in altitude of over 1000 metres. The 8-kilometre slope to Stöckalp is a must for sledgers. In Fruttli-Land, kids can enjoy themselves on the magic carpet and ski carousel.

Summer

Situated between the Bernese Oberland holiday destination of Hasliberg and the central Swiss resort of Engelberg, the Melchsee-Frutt is a popular hiking area. The Hasliberg - Melchsee-Frutt - Engelberg mountain trail is a classic and the six-hour, four-lake section from Melchsee-Frutt via Tannalp, Engstlenalp, Jochpass and Trübsee to Engelberg is a particular favourite. Large sections of the walk can be shortened by using the chairlifts and mountain railways.

In summer the Frutt is a fabulous sea of flowers. Keen anglers are not the only visitors to be captivated by the deep blue mountain lakes of the Melchsee and Tannensee, which are teeming with trout. There are also plenty of adventures to be had climbing the imposing Boni rock faces.

Family

Want to turn into a marmot, just for a day? The ten-station trail at Melchsee-Frutt welcomes families who want to find out more about these delightful rodents. You can climb, jump or find your way through a maze and behave just like a real marmot. A pleasure to be shared with the whole family! On the trail, there are animal observation points and a variety of puzzles to spark children’s curiosity.
