From Homberg, you follow the route down to Ruswil, the largest farming municipality in Switzerland. The landscape of rolling hills is dotted with scattered farming communities. Numerous farms established themselves here on the sun-soaked slopes over the years, many of them having now evolved into imposing farmsteads. Alongside the farmhouses, Ruswil boasts grand country houses, ancient peat barns and, of course, its charming village centre.
The route passes high above Lake Sempach via Buttisholz and Huprächtigen on its return to Sempach.
