Tour description

Melchsee-Frutt is located in a high valley in central Switzerland. The way to Tannalp passes through a glorious winter landscape, and two picturesque chapels add an extra touch of charm.
From the cable car station, the hiking trail leads to Tannalp. After traversing a knoll, you walk down to the lake. At the end of the lake, the cross-country track turns left. Shortly after that point but before the little bridge, the walking paths cross. You follow the new one uphill. The path leads beneath the Bonistock cable car and parallel to the Tannendamm rock formations. Here is where the paths cross again. The last part of the walk follows the lake shore and then down to Tannalp. At the Tannalp guesthouse, why not stop for something to eat and drink? On your way back to Melchsee-Frutt, you'll see Melchsee's pretty chapel.
