High above Engelberg, after the gondola ride from the Titlis valley station to Trübsee, the magnificent view in the direction of Titlis awaits you.

The winter hiking trail starts right at the Trübsee mountain hotel and leads downhill past the Rutschpark to Trübsee. Covered in snow and ice, you can't see why the Trübsee got its name. However, it should be revealed that the mountain lake is also filled with emerald green glacier water in summer, which makes visitors wonder about its name. The path leads once around the lake. Marvel at the lake covered in snow and ice and enjoy the sun and the fantastic mountain world.
