If you're staying in Zürich, Switzerland for a few days you might want to consider a day trip to a nearby town and one of the closest destinations is the historic city of Zug. It has a small historic center with several remarkable buildings and quaint Swiss atmosphere. Zug is half an hour away by train and all the trains leave twice an hour from Zürich, so it's really easy to get there.
It's a direct train -- you don't have to change – and you’ll enjoy some nice scenery along the way. When you arrive in Zug you'll notice that the train station is quite modern. If you think you're coming to visit an old historic town, which is really the plan, you'll be surprised at how beautiful and up-to-date the station is. In fact Zug is a modern city with a historical town, which is what we’re here to see. You don’t want to walk from the train station to the old town, which is just too far, over a mile, so get on the public bus. A short ride take you through the modern part along the lakeshore, and you'll soon be arriving within a few blocks of the old town. Now come along on our video tour of Zug’s Old Town.

The city of Zurich has approximately 400,000 inhabitants, is the largest city in Switzerland and has a population density of approximately 4300 inhabitants per square kilometer. Zurich is the most important economic, scientific and social center of Switzerland. The city lies in the eastern Swiss Plateau, on the Lake Zurich. Its inhabitants are called Zürcher.

Part ONE: ZUG City Tour / Switzerland
WELCOME TO ZUG :)
The town of Zug is located in the canton of Zug and is the canton's capital. The name Zug originates from fishing vocabulary; in the middle ages it referred to the right to pull up fishing nets and hence to the right to fish. The official language of Zug is (the Swiss variety of Standard) German, but the main spoken language is the local variant of the Alemannic Swiss German dialect.
Zug may be small but it is a high quality destination in Switzerland. It is also compact, so everywhere can be easily reached. It enjoys beautiful undulating scenery with two lakes and is not far from the mountains. What is more, it enjoys the most stunning sunsets. It is also known for its cherries and the world of business and is a most pleasant place in which to live, work, or just spend time.
It is a joy just being here.

4K Zug Lake & City SWITZERLAND ツーク湖
Zug is an affluent municipality and town in Switzerland. The name Zug originates from fishing vocabulary; in the Middle Ages it referred to the right to pull up fishing nets and hence to the right to fish.
The town of Zug is located in the canton of Zug and is the canton's capital.
The lake is mostly within the borders of the Canton of Zug, with about 10 square kilometres at its southern end in the canton Schwyz, while the Canton of Lucerne claims about 2 km2 to the north of Immensee. Toward the south-west extremity of the lake the Rigi descends rather steeply to the water's edge, while part of its east shore forms a narrow level band at the foot of the 1,583 m Rossberg, and the Zugerberg. The culminating point of the lake's drainage basin is the summit of the Rigi at 1,798 m.

4K Gersau, Schwyz SWITZERLAND アルプス山脈
Gersau is a municipality and district in the canton of Schwyz in Switzerland, sitting on the shores of Lake Lucerne. Gersau was for many centuries an independent micro-state in permanent alliance with the Swiss Confederation.
Gersau is in a self-contained location, nestled in a sunny recess in the lee of the south face of Rigi. Gersau is protected from cool winds by the Rigi-Hochfluh and Gersauerstock peaks to the north, and the winds are further moderated by Lake Lucerne to the south. This produces a mild climate in which Sweet Chestnut trees thrive, and as a result of which Gersau is known in the region as the Riviera of Lake Lucerne. Gersau offers great views of the Alps and Lake Lucerne. An idyllic alpine scenery.
