Our tips for a perfect family holiday


The mountains around Melchsee-Frutt are ideal for hiking. On each of the different routes you can enjoy wonderful views of the Swiss Alps. The route repertoire offers a wide spectrum from short distances to long hikes.

Stroller tour

The Melchsee-Frutt hiking area also offers paths suitable for prams: starting in the center of the village to Tannalp and going around the Tannensee, you will find an easy path without great differences in altitude. A more demanding path leads from the town center to the Melchsee (counterclockwise) and requires a little more stamina.

Fruttli path

Ten stations around the Melchsee form the popular Fruttli path. Children and adults learn in a playful way everything about marmots, their behavior and habitat, as well as what you should pay attention to in order to protect them.

At each of the 10 stops waits a little challenge for young and old: do you climb like a real marmot or can you cope with a maze? A little question about the life of rodents can be found on every station. If you answer all the questions correctly and put them in the Fruttli pass, you will receive a little surprise at the end of the round at the old top station of Stöcklalpbahn! You can get the Fruttlipass free of charge at the station.

Furthermore, you find 4 fire pits on the path for campfires and grilling. The use is free of charge and firewood is regularly refilled. The entire route is of course suitable for prams.
