The 116 km Seetal Heart Loop offers two wonderful one-day stages away from traffic: the charming 51 km “East Branch” e-bike stage passes through traditional orchards and over the Lindenberg with views of Lakes Baldegg and Hallwil, as well as of the breathtaking alpine panorama. The 65 km “West Branch” immerses you in the green valleys and hills of Canton Aargau and the Beromünster – Lake Sempach region.

From Eschenbach Convent, the route leads to the Commandry of the Order of St. John, then up to Horben Castle. After a high-level stretch with views of Lake Hallwil, we see Hilfikon and Hallwyl Castles before following the Aabach to Lenzburg.

Note: The entire route is equipped for electric bicycles. Cyclists on conventional bikes need to be fit; not suitable for trailers.
