You start in the village of Hitzkirch. The path passes below the Kaiserspanestate's vineyards to Heidegg Castle, where there's a magnificent viewof the lake and mountains to be had. The castle's open between Apriland October: set aside enough time for a visit – it really is worth it. Afterdescending from the castle to the village, the path continues flat alongsidelovely, unspoilt Lake Baldegg until you reach Hochdorf some 2½ hours later.

Answered by Team Seetal  · July 27, 2020 · Seetal Tourismus
Guten Tag Frau Wüthrich Die Wanderung ist grundsätzlich barrierefrei, mit wenigen Einschränkungen: einige Wurzeln auf dem Uferweg im Wald bei Baldegg. Schloss Heidegg: Allee, Point de Vue, Schlossumgelände, Rosengarten sind stufenfrei erreichbar. Die Wege sind mit Rundkies bestreut. Das Museum kann mit Lift vom 2.-5. Obergeschoss besucht werden, die Aufsicht hilft gerne. Freundliche Grüsse Seetal Tourismus
