The Guggi Vantage Point in Zug – Offering a View over the Old Town and Lake Zug
On an excursion to Zug, you should be sure not to miss this magnificent view over the Old Town and Lake Zug.
Starting from the main post office in Zug, after just a short climb a breath-taking panorama opens up before you. The view extends over Lake Zug, the old fortified towers of the Old Town, and – on clear days – even as far as the Bernese Alps in the distance. This vantage point is a particular popular spot from which to enjoy Zug’s legendary sunsets.
The people of Zug owe the Guggi to the construction of a tunnel to link up with the Gotthard railway line at the end of the 19th century. The excavated earth was deposited here, thus creating a beautiful elevated lookout point.
