Comfortably urban but in the centre of a recreational area: Zug is a charming lakeside town with old streets, plenty of culture and culinary delights.

Zug

Holidays in and around Zug are anything but boring. If you like variety, you're in the right place! Viewing the Late Gothic buildings in Zug's old town from the Zytturm (clock tower) is just as exciting as a trip up the Zugerberg or an excursion to the fabulous subterranean world of the Höllgrotten Caves in Baar. You can make the most of the lake and hop into the water or onto a boat in summer. Zug Youth Hostel is also just a two-minute walk from the lake shore. Situated between the lake and the "Herti" sports facilities, it's perfect for track and field athletics, curling, hockey and diving camps.
