Tour description

Starting at the boat landing-stage «Zug Bahnhofsteg», go leisurely along the banks of Lake Zug to where the Lorze River joins it. Then on a simple cycle track follow the Lorze all the way to the neighbouring commune of Baar. After you have crossed Baar, an idyllic route takes you along the banks of the Lorze once more, until you come to the magical Höll caves with their incredible stalagmites and stalactites. Enjoy the enchantment of the caves and the peaceful surroundings.

Places to see and points to note:

- Swiss Touring Club Camp Site «Zugersee»
- Baar Brewery
- Detour to the Hofmärcht farm in Deinikon Baar
- Barbecue areas along the banks of the River Lorze
- Visit to the «Höllgrotten» limestone caves in Baar


Variante A: Round trip on Lake Zug is a relaxing alternative, e.g. with breakfast or afternoon tea on board.


Look out for possible «no cycling» signs, and push your bike.
Cost of bike transport on the boat (day ticket): CHF 5.00
