Welcome to the Zugerberg winter wonderland

No matter what the weather is doing, excursion guests will get their money's worth in the recreation area of Zugerberg. Travelling by public transport is not only easy, but also recommended.

The excursion possibilities on the Zugerberg are very varied. In order to be up-to-date on the activities possible, the team of the Zugerberg Bahn provides information on the current situation on a daily basis on www.zbb.ch/lagebericht. Not only the status of the activities is stored by means of a traffic light system there, but information about each individual experience can also be found. This means that visitors can be well informed and plan their trip accordingly – whether by sledge, hiking or simply soaking up the sun.

In many ways, the "little" Zugerberg can keep up with the bigger mountain services. The funicular takes guests to the Zugerberg in eight minutes. The ‘Zugerbergbähnli’ runs every half-hour at 26 minutes and 56 minutes after each hour, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. from Schönegg valley station at 925 metres above sea level. In the event of an increased number of passengers, the train runs every quarter of an hour.

Walks and hikes
Whether spring, summer, autumn or winter on the high plateau of the Zugerberg, many hikes with different lengths and levels of difficulty invite you to stretch your legs and enjoy nature. There are four circular hikes with magnificent views and different lengths to be discovered. Longer hikes to the communities of Baar, Unterägeri or Walchwil are also possible from the Zugerberg.

The Zugiblubbi adventure trail is worth a visit all year round:. The trail starts directly at the mountain station of the funicular, and consists of eight game posts and nine diamond posts. For each diamond item, there is a letter that can be entered in the treasure search card. The treasure list is available directly at the top station of the Zugerberg Bahn. The adventure trail covers a distance of about 4.5 kilometres and lasts between 1.5 and 2 hours (depending on the length of stays at the different posts). The whole route is accessible for both wheelchairs and children's prams/buggies.

"Zämehebä!" and protect yourself
The Zugerberg  Railway is subject to the public transport protection concept. This means that the mask obligation applies in the train as well as at the stations and at the Schönegg bus stop. The Zugerberg-Bahn team would like to thank each and every one for supporting compliance with these health measures. "Zämehebä" (hold together) is the motto – and everyone is in the same boat. More  information about the offers on the Zugerberg, as well as the webcam and the "Zugerberg  live” current situation report can be found on www.zbb.ch. The current weather report and tourist information are available via the weather telephone number 041 728 58 30.
