The plateau between the lakes of Baldegg and Sempach offers plenty of trails for all seasons and pleasant nature walks. In April and May the rapeseed blossoms on the farmland around the lake shores and the surrounding landscape, with the snow-capped Alps in the background, becomes even more amazing! Here is a wonderful hike from Hochdorf to the old town of Sempach, on the lake of the same name.

This hike is a linear route that starts from the train station in Hochdorf and leads through flowering rape fields and forests to the old town of Sempach, on the shores of the lake of the same name. On the way, you will have the opportunity to visit two historic chapels and the memorial of Arnold Winkelried, the hero of the Battle of Sempach. The total route of about 16.5 km is of moderate difficulty (mainly because of its length), but runs entirely on dirt roads and paved sections. Along the itinerary there are several dining options. Alternatively, if you prefer to bring your own sack lunch, just before arriving in Sempach, in the Steiniberg area, there is a large picnic area with toilets.
