A pretty little town at the south-eastern end of the lake of the same name, in the canton of Lucerne. It was here that the Battle of Sempach took place in 1386, which saw the victory of Lucerne and Waldstätten (Uri, Schwyz, Unterwalden) over the vastly superior Austrians, which marked the true beginning of Swiss independence.
