Zugersee-Uferweg

The route from Zug to Cham leads along the shores of the Zugersee lake. A route marked by variety with it's urbane promenades, tranquil woodland and meadow sections and idyllic views of the lake.
The start is at Zug railway station, from where the Zugerquai can be reached., which is exceptionally well kept. You move along the wide, well-visited promenade, passing painstakingly arranged flower beds, various small restaurants and attractive stands. An untouched section of the shore soon takes over from the urban ambiance. Here you discover wild grasslands with occasional gnarled trees as well as rest spots at the water's edge.

The view of the Zugersee lake is enchanting. The glistening water is framed by the picturesque, curved shore landscape. Here and there, small jetties and wooden bridges jut out of the water and the extensive reed beds offer shelter for many birds. In places you pass forested areas.

In Cham the scene changes back to a beautifully arranged promenade. A detour to the generously proportioned, wide boat jetty and the peaceful lakeside park are well worthwhile. Finally a stop at the charming Chamer Villette-Park, is recommended where, if you please, you can end your excursion with some refreshments.
