Tour description

The Emmenuferweg taps a charming region of our canton. It leads along the Kleine Emme from Emmenbruecke until the wellspring behind Soerenberg. The fact, that the path leads to all railwaystations of the route Lucerne – Schuepfheim, acts also very simpatico. The Emmenuferweg offers a welcome possibility to walk all parts of the path separate. The whole Emmenuferweg is easy to go, only the part between Schuepfheim and Fluehli is a little bit demanding.

Schuepfheim - Soerenberg:
The last part of the Emmenuferweg, which shows again another and wild side of the Kleine Emme, leads through the wild romantic Lammschlucht until the spring of the Emme. On this part you have the possibility to experience closely the power of the water.


You can take the bus back to your starting point. Since the path is situated next to the bus route you can finish the tour whenever you like (bus timetable under www.postauto.ch).

The GPS-reception is eventually disturbed in the Lammschlucht.
