On your way to Zurich, visit the city of Zug, known for its low taxes and the headquarters of numerous companies, was founded by the Kyburgers. The town's landmark is the Zytturm, from which you have a magnificent view of the old town, Zugerberg and lake.
The Counts of Kyburg are said to have founded the town at the beginning of the 13th century. The 52-metre high Zytturm also dates from this period. Initially built as a simple wall passage to the Old Town, it was raised and supplemented over the centuries until it finally got its present form with bay windows and a steep hipped roof. In 1574 the large clock was installed, which gave the tower its name. Below this main clock is an astronomical clock with four hands that indicate the week, the phase of the moon, the month and the leap year.
In the old town itself is the late Gothic town hall built around 1505 and the church of St. Oswald, which dates from the same period.
Stroll through the historic centre, through winding, narrow streets and along the lake. In one of the many cafés you can try the fine Zug church cake - here the original.
