The car-free holiday resort at alt. 1920 m can be reached using the aerial cableway from Stöckalp.

It's then a short walk to the enchanting mountain lake which, together with the alpine setting and little hamlet, offers the perfect backdrop for your outdoor activities.

Experience the high valley in summer hiking along deep-blue mountain lakes to great vantage points, or take the Fruttli road-going "train" which connects Melchsee-Frutt and Tannalp.

The Fruttli path is a family hiking trail that circumnavigates Lake Melch and has ten places where children can learn about marmots.

Fun on two wheels

Do you like fast descents? If so, ride a Fatbike or scooter down to Stöckalp or bring your own bike and load it onto the cableway cabin for the ascent. The paths are well signposted and offer a range of challenges.


Melchsee-Frutt is a climbing Eldorado offering 160 routes with grades ranging from 3a to 8. The varied «Fruttli» via ferrata and «discOWer» rope park are suitable for families.
