Melchsee-Frutt Ski Hotel Guide - Ski accommodation

Melchsee-Frutt

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.



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 Park, 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.
