The city and Canton Zug donated this youth hostel to its people in 1987 - and it was a most generous gift. What was once a wooden shack has become a roomy building with 88 beds, an infrastructure suitable for the handicapped, and an art exhibition thrown in free of charge. The façade boasts striking murals, and the working sketches for these are displayed in the dining room. The two flights of stairs are dedicated to water: you climb to the upper levels in the company of a wave crashing against a cliff, and from your room there are views of the glistening lake. Next morning, a colourful waterfall leads you down to breakfast.
The youht hostel, between the lake and the "Herti" sports complex, is ideal for sports camps intended for track and field athletes, curling or hockey teams, or divers. And to relax? How about a trip to the "Zugerberg" mountain and on to the open-air cinema by the lake?
