The Trübsee Tour offers a wonderful panoramic view and a conditionally crisp section. The crystal-clear Trübsee invites cold-resistant bikers to cool down with its emerald green glacier water.

From Engelberg station, the starting point of the Trübsee tour, you go to the valley station of the TITLIS mountain railway. To the left of the station, the tarred Gerschnistrasse (on the road you must expect factory traffic) leads in the direction of Untertrübsee. Steadily rising, but protected from the sun by the forest, the road meanders to Alp Untertrübsee. The first stop for the thirsty bikers is already waiting there. Here the forest thins out and offers a view of the mountain world. Turn left at the first turn-off onto a wide gravel path. From there strong legs are required. The coarse gravel makes high demands on stamina and driving technique. The view of the Titlis and the knowledge that the crystal-clear Trübsee awaits the tired biker's feet make you forget the strains. When the Trübsee comes into view, you have almost reached the height and you can already see the top station of the gondola lift Engelberg-Trübsee-Titlis. On the right shore of Lake Trübsee, you take the paved road towards the end of the tour. Before returning to the valley, it's worth putting your feet up on one of the deck chairs on the large terrace of the Berghotel Trübsee and enjoying a cool drink with a view of the magnificent mountain world. Back to the valley and to the starting point of the tour, you follow the same route.
