Right at the very heart of Central Switzerland, shared by cantons Zug, Schwyz and Lucerne, lies Lake Zug - Switzerland’s tenth largest lake.
Surrounded by lovely hills, this picturesque region offers a great variety of hiking, biking and skating trails. All of these can be perfectly combined with a culinary excursion on Lake Zug, for example on the Sushi Cruise, the Dessert Cruise or the Crêpes Cruise.
