The trail around Lake Trübsee is a nice walk for families with strollers or if you like it flat and leisurely. Remember to pack some cervelat or bratwurst in your backpack. Four fireplaces invite you to enjoy a barbecue.
A visit to the rustic Hüethütte, the cozy Alpstübli or the Berghotel Trübsee is always worth it!
