After arriving in Zug, Lake Zug is just a short walk away. A stroll along the lakeside promenade takes you to the picturesque Old Town, where Zug’s landmark, the Zytturm tower, can be found. Interested visitors can collect the key to the tower at the Wunderbox boutique next door. Those who would like to enjoy a coffee first can do so right across the street at Bobs Foodstore.
The City of Cherries
Zug is the city of cherries. There is much to discover on the subject:
Heading for the Heights
The Zugerberg lies 1,093 meters (633 ft) above sea level. Here visitors can enjoy not only the magnificent view, but also various walking and hiking paths, as well as mountain bike trails. In winter, there are also cross-country ski trails and toboggan runs. In summer, a speedy scooter ride leads to the next highlight, the Höllgrotten dripstone caves.
“Constant dripping wears away the stone” is a well-known proverb. In the Lorze ravine near Zug, however, the constant dripping has not just worn away the stone, but also produced amazing new forms. The Höllgrotten caves present an enchanting subterranean world of stalactites and stalagmites, which have been formed here over the last 3,000 years.
Zug is famous for its fabulous sunsets. Whether over dinner directly by the lake or simply sitting on the shore, the spectacle is a golden ending to a beautiful day in Zug.
