Zug is a town in the canton of Zug in central Switzerland and is located on the shores of Lake Zug. From here, you can take the train to Zurich or Lucerne in about 30 minutes. By car it can sometimes take longer, because the traffic volume on both routes is very high. But Zug itself also has a lot to offer. The city is known for its cultivation of cherries, so you can find the Zug cherries (or “Zug Chriesi”) here, which are processed into cakes and liquor. Zug is also considered a tax haven, as the taxes here are the lowest in comparison to the rest of Switzerland, which is why many companies have settled in the city. A furnished apartment in Zug is ideal for business travelers who travel to Zug or the surrounding cities for at least a month.
Zug’s old town is well worth a visit. In addition to many narrow alleys, there are old half-timbered houses, as well as Zug Castle and isolated towers that are remnants of the former city wall. The most notable is the Zytturm with its blue-white tower cap. The old town lies directly on Lake Zug, which makes a walk here particularly beautiful. Those who like to live in the heart of the city, surrounded by half-timbered houses, should rent a furnished apartment for temporary living in the old town of Zug.
The Neustadt district is the centre of Zug. This is where the main train station is located, from where you can reach Lucerne and Zurich in about 30 minutes. From here, you can go on day hikes, as for example to the Zugerberg, or to the mountain Rigi. From above, you will have a panoramic view of Lake Zug and the surrounding towns, lakes and mountains. If you don’t feel like hiking, you can also take the cable car up the mountain. Temporary accommodation is particularly suitable in the Neustadt of Zug, as one lives centrally and everything is easily reachable from here.
Baar is a neighbouring municipality of Zug and lies to the north in the direction of Zurich. From here you can easily plan trips, because there are for example the Höllgrotten, a collection of dripstone caves. The municipality is very interesting for business travelers, as many companies have also settled here and the express trains stop here. Therefore it is a good idea to rent a furnished apartment in Baar if you are on a business trip in Zug.
