Trüebsee, CH

Trüebsee is an intermediate cable car station by the Titlis Bergbahnen and an alpine lake (surface elevation: 1,764 m; area: 30 ha; max. depth: 10 m) on the Ober Trüebsee Alpine pasture in the upper part of the extensive municipality of Wolfenschiessen in the Swiss canton of Nidwalden.

The lake lies at the foot of the Titlis above the village resort of Engelberg. The Trüebsee can be reached from the village by cable car, or via several alpine walking paths, e.g. the Pfaffenwand.


Can there be a more wonderful feeling than leaving traces in the fresh powder snow as you wander up hill and down dale, through tranquil forests? High above Engelberg, the Obertrübsee Snowshoe Trail awaits nature-loving ramblers and ambitious athletes alike.

On this beautiful high path, you walk from the Trübsee mountain station along the lake to the Hüethütte mountain hut, then in the direction of the Alpstubli restaurant and continuing along the shores of Lake Trübsee. After a short ascent, you will reach the Trübsee station and Berghotel Trübsee.

Next to it, try out the sit-skis, minibobs and snowtubes, and see which one whips up the most snow. Snowtubing is sure to be an all-round hit. This fun and crazy winter activity will see you racing down the track on a rubber tyre. You can choose whether to sit or lie, and whether to set off facing forwards or backwards. The magic carpet will then whisk you quickly and easily back to the top. Simply sit back and enjoy the ride! It’s free!

What’s not for free but yet promises a lot of fun is renting a snow mobile at the snowXpark.
