Hike over the Bleichenberg with its lovely little castle and through the Wasseramt, an area characterised by agriculture and water management. On the way you will pass by witnesses of a bygone era, such as the Emmen Canal and a number of retaining and controlling weirs. The crowning glory is surely the Burgäschisee, an inviting place to bathe in summer.
