What a panorama! The view stretches from the Säntis to the Bernese Alps, their snow-covered peaks beaming for the weather under the steel-blue sky. On this three-day bike tour through the four regions of Lucerne - UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch, regions of Willisau, Sempachersee and Seetal – you can expect plenty of such WOW moments and numerous tough metres in altitude. Around 168 kilometres and 3,700 metres in altitude – these are the key notes of the «Lucerne CulTour».

 

Lucerne CulTour in three days:

  • Stage 1: Along the Napf Heart Loop from Escholzmatt to Romoos
  • Stage 2: From Romoos via Willisau to Lake Sempach
  • Stage 3: From Sempach via Heart Loop Seetal East Branch to Lenzburg

Unglaublich schöne Tour! Zu 95% autofrei und überall gut fahrbar. Ich habe die Tour am Stück in einem Tag mit dem Gravel-Rad gemacht. Die gesamte Strecke ist gut markiert mit "Radwegweisern".
