An absolute classic and on my list every year is the 4-lake hike from Melchsee-Frutt to Engelberg (or Engelberg to Melchsee-Frutt). A hike that meets all requirements and enchants everyone with its incredible uniqueness. The hike gets an absolute plus point because it can be shortened by chairlift, scooter-bike or gondola, depending on your mood. Lake Melchsee, Lake Tannensee, Lake Engstlensee and Lake Trübsee offer countless places to relax and marvel at our mountain world.
