This easy hike from Sursee to Sempach is a part of the Via Gottardo and offers a wonderful sight on the lake of Sempach and the Alps. The way goes down to the lake then goes through the wetlands along the lake. Then the way goes up the hill and along hamlets and farms with a wonderful view on the lake and the Alps all the way long. After a visit of the 11th century church St Martin at Kirchbühl the way goes down to Sempach. After a visit of the nice old town the way brings you on the beach where the well maintained beach invites you to a well-deserved picnic or bath ! The bird lovers can visit the Swiss ornithological station before heading to the railway station.
