Zug is Switzerland’s answer to Monaco – a tiny city-state teeming with millionaires and home to some of the country’s priciest real estate. But Zug is also a charming and picturesque town, with a lakeside setting and a well-preserved medieval centre. The city is known for its low taxes (which have made it a haven for the wealthy) and its thriving tech industry, and is a popular base for business travellers and expats. With its close proximity to Zurich and easy access to the Alps, Zug is also a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Come for a weekend to enjoy the lake views, the hiking trails and the many trendy bars and restaurants.
