Lucerne, Sempach area and Historical Sites

Hi folks,

We're planning to go to the Lake Sempach area to visit the site of the famous Battle of Sempach. What else did you find worthwhile in the city of Sempach (also Sursee and Beromunster). I know they are all historical cities with various buildings, etc. Are there any other Swiss history sites in the area worthwhile?

Also, what were your favorite attractions in the Lucerne area?

Thank you!
Leah

I suppose the Ruetli Meadow has to be mentioned. On the Vierwaldstaettersee, site of the Ruetli Oath, founding of the Swiss Confederation 100 years before the Battle of Sempach.
Murten, site of the Battle of Murten which solidified the Confederacy.
Lion Monument in Luzern to the massacred members of Louis XVI's personal guard regiment.
