Zug is a canton of poetic repose in Switzerland. Located almost halfway between Zurich and Luzern in a lakeland valley, the capital city of Zug both charms as a vibrant medieval baroque old town and beguiles as a hip laid back modern burg of all...More

Travelled today on Rigi from Zug to Arth and back. It was a beautiful day and the cruise was fantastic. Service on the cruise was the most terrible that we have experienced in Zug. With 3 young kids we were unable to find a seat...More

Very tidy clean boat with friendly helpful staff. Lovely trip around the lake. The boat stops to pick up and drop off passengers. Several inside and outside decks. Lunch was expensive and disappointing. Tiny portions of fish and boiled vegetables. Noticed staff had huge plate...More

A sunny day we went on the biggest of the three ships: "Zug". The view is gorgeous with the great mountain "Rigi" in the background. We had dinner on board. Both dinner and wine were fine.

A little bit of paradise. The ship provides an amazingly good buffet to enjoy as you glide on the smooth waters of the Zugersee. Views over the manicured countryside stretch to the Eiger on a clear day. Only downside from a tourists viewpoint is that...More

The Zug boat cruise is a must-do when you are in town. Sail along the fringes of the lake, towards its deepest point and around an island housing an 11th century castle and a church. With the mountains in the backdrop, it's sure to be...More

Always a very pleasant experience. The ships on the zugersee are very comfortable. Friendly staff. I recommend it even when it rains. The atmosphere on the lake of zug is stupendous.

I've been to many Zugersee boat rides, for all sorts of occasions: birthday parties, wedding receptions, business events. But my favorite still is... the romantic dinner. The price may be slightly on the steep side, especially if good wines are involved, but the end result...More

Certainly brunch on Sundays otherwise tends to be light refreshments. Of course you could use the public transport system to hop on- hop off and have a meal at an inn somewhere.
