Tour description

Commercial life and the factories that were built to meet the industrial needs of the area, characterise the lives and landscape of a region over a long period. They become part of the regional culture and in order to preserve this cultural heritage and to increase people’s awareness, the Lorze Industry Trail was created in 1995 and maintained by the association of the same name. The trail is over 30 km long and stretches from Unterägeri via Baar, Zug and Cham as far as the old Reuss Bridge between Hünenberg and Sins, right across the scenic countryside of the River Lorze area in Canton Zug. Along the trail there are 65 information boards with lots of pictures and historical facts about the industrial development of the Canton, which is closely connected with the Lorze itself. This is pure living history, documenting the changes of the past centuries and its influence on the lives of the people living here.
