The picture-book landscape of the Seetal (Lake Valley), with its castles and palaces, romantic villages and the pristine shorelines of Lake Hallwiler and Lake Baldegger, is a singularly beautiful excursion destination for sports-minded visitors and families.

From the idyllic hilltops you will have an impressive panoramic view of Central Switzerland’s Alps with the Rigi, Pilatus and Titlis mountains. The Seetal offers tangible living culture, sports and entertainment. Well-constructed hiking and biking trails criss-cross the valley and link the two lakes and castles.

The villages are dotted with lidos and restaurants that offer fish specialties. Lakeboats regularly ply Lake Hallwil from one lakeshore to the other. Well-preserved architecture testifies to the Middle Ages in the Seetal valley and can be visited: Lenzburg Castle, perched on a hilltop, the moated Hallwyl Castle, the fortified Wildegg Castle, Heidegg Castle and the Nünegg Castle Ruin.

Summer

Summer sees the Seetal valley blossoming. Castles open their doors around the beginning of April, at a time when the regional boat company commences its public transport services on the Hallwilersee lake once again. Plenty of lovely bathing spots invite you to linger along the shores of the Baldegger and Hallwilersee lakes – while others boast the natural beauty and gently rolling hills revealed on walking trails leading around the lakes.
