The Lake Sempach circular path offers numerous sights and magnificent views across the lake!
Distance 23.4 km

The short climb in Sempach heading towards Kirchbühl is worth the effort - at the top, you are on the Roman Way and enjoying magnificent views. On the other side of the lake, the trail runs along the edge of the lake.

Author’s recommendation

Pause at the Caribbean Village, Nottwil for a refreshing drink!

An einer Seite direkt an der Bahn, auf der anderen direkt an der Schnellstraße. Kaum Blick auf den See.
