Sempachersee-Moosweg

From the departure point at Sursee railway station, the route soon leads through open countryside, passing peaceful meadows and fields and alongside the Sempachersee lake to Nottwil. You are in the heart of Kanton Luzern.
After a short visit to the picturesque old town of Sursee, which still has it's late-medieval townscape with many historic buildings, you begin the route with a wide loop to the Strandbad (lido). This is where you catch a first glimpse of the peaceful Sempachersee lake.

The route now branches slightly away from the lake shore and leads through flower-filled fields as far as the eye can see. After enjoying unspoilt nature, in the village of Oberkirch you encounter impressive and extensive fruit fields. Hardly have you left the village when you are faced with a breathtaking vista over seemingly unending wide green spaces stretching as far as Nottwil.

In Nottwil it's well worth making a detour to the imposing complex of the Schweizer Paraplegiker Zentrum (Swiss Paraplegic Centre). And last but not least, at Nottwil railway station you once again meet the Sempachersee lake, where you can round off the tour in a perfect way at the lakeside.
