Tour description

This tour takes you way up to the highest point in Canton Zug. The hike starts leisurely at the top station of the Zugerberg funicular railway. From there you follow the elegant, extended ridge of the Zugerberg as far as Zuger Alpli. Fortify yourself here now for the steep ascent to the Wildspitz. Your effort will be rewarded with an incredible view of the valley of Schwyz, the Aegeri valley, Lake Zug and the surrounding alpine scenery.
