Zug with children

Zug lies in the heart of the countryside, close to the mountains. This little southern area of the Children’s Region offers huge variety for children.

Zug is a child’s paradise. Two lakes, hiking trails, experience routes for children and lots of playgrounds make Zug an excellent destination for families. Here, your little ones can discover a magical underworld in the Höllgrotten caves, enjoy trips in pedalos and boats on and around the lake, and visit free swimming pools and huge playgrounds.

Those who love to get a bit more active can roam through forests and over streams to Hünenberg castle. Zug is also big on events for families: Märlisunntig, Chriesisturm, Zugiblubbi and Bäckermöhli are just some of the traditional local events on offer for children.
