Route variations

You can hike the 4-lake hike in different variations, shorten the tour with mountain railroads, add a few highlights along the way or even spend the night on the mountain. Below you will find some suggestions.

Start from Trübsee

You save the first 800 meters of altitude and cover them with the Titlis Xpress. Thus, your start is at the Trübsee.

Start from Jochpass

16 km, 200 hm

In addition to the Titlis Xpress, after a short walk along the Trübsee, you take the chairlift up to the Jochpass and save another 400 meters in altitude.

Trübsee - Tannensee

9 km, 600 hm

ou take the Titlis Xpress and then hike on the original route to the Tannensee. There you take the Frutt-train and save the rest of the walk to be able to linger and swim at Melchsee.

2 days variant

25 km, 1400 hm

You complete the entire 4-lake hike and can still take it easy. Halfway through the hike, you'll spend the night in the Bärghuis Jochpass and have time for other activities on the way, such as a detour to the Titlis.

Family Tip
