All kinds of walks can be planned in the Lake Trüb area, such as from the Titlis-Xpress terminus directly up to the Joch Pass. Another route via Rossboden and along Lake Trüb takes you to the little Älplerseil cableway: this brings you down to Untertrübsee, where you can buy alp cheese before your return to Engelberg.

Author’s recommendation

At the Bärghuis Jochpass serves the best Gschlabber, a dessert featuring raspberry and quark.

Destination

Engelberg, station

Turn-by-turn directions

Take the Titlis-Xpress from Engelberg to the Lake Trüb terminus, then go down to the water's edge where rowing boats can be hired. For the children, there's a new "Smugglers & Mule Drivers" adventure playground. Walkers set off for the Joch Pass from here. Other paths lead to the western shore of Lake Trüb and along the water's edge to the little Älplerseil aerial cableway which travels down to the Untertrübsee alp, where footpaths lead to Engelberg railway station.
