New and tried-and-tested bathing fun: What do the swimming pools in Zug have in store for this season? Over 2 days, we provide an overview of the offers in Zug

With the rising temperatures, the bathing season is just around the corner. The swimming pools in Zug are actively preparing, with some of them having some new features in store this year. Here is the second part of our overview.

Rotkreuz swimming pool
in terms of admission prices and opening hours, everything remains the same this year at Rotkreuz swimming pool, . "The main new feature is that our pool is now heated up to 26 °C. This is sure to get the 'Gfrööris' excited about the outdoor pool," says Norbert Teglas from the Badi-Bistro. There is also free parking. Events such as the summer festival on June 15 and the after-work aperitif in Bar 33 every Friday should also attract people. The latter can even boast a live DJ.

Buonas swimming pool
Badi Buonas is also open to bathers again this year, and the pool is open this season from 10 am to 9 pm. Visitors can obtain refreshments from the pool kiosk, while those looking for a larger meal can head to the nearby Gasthaus Wildenmann.


Seeliken lido and Chamer Fussweg lido
According to the sports manager of the city of Zug, Thomas Felber, the Strandbad Chamer Fussweg will be open from 9 am to 7.30 pm, and the Strandbad Seeliken from 9 am to 9 pm, weather permitting. The restaurants at the lido and the Seebistro Seeliken will be open until 10 pm and 11 pm respectively. "The catering establishments, which are operated externally, can host a certain number of events. No events are planned by the city of Zug, however," explains Thomas Felber.

Badi Trubikon
The new season at Badi Trubikon in Oberwil near Zug officially started on 8 May. As a special kick-off event, a Mother's Day brunch was held there on May 12 from 9 am to 1 pm.

Cham lido
There will be no major changes to the opening hours and facilities at the Strandbad Cham, which will remain free of charge. According to Markus Jund from the municipality of Cham, the pools at the Cham lido will be repainted and the technology overhauled. It has not yet been decided whether there will be another lido festival at the end of the season.


Hirsgarten pool
According to tenant Erol Karadag, there will be a comprehensive and expanded food and drink offer at the Hirsgarten-Bad restaurant kiosk in Cham this year. "Our new team is well-positioned and motivated. We are confident that we can offer people something," he says. You can also count on their well-known paella evening, and live music, and the electronic open air "teCHAMsee" are on the cards again as events. The main season starts on May 18, although the pre-season has been running since the beginning of April.

Walchwil lakeside resort
The bistro at Seebad Walchwil has had a new tenant for a few weeks now, Jonny Azizi. He has already made a name for himself in the Zug catering industry with his other restaurants such as the "Plaza", the "Barakka" and "s'Herti". The entrepreneur also wants to bring his ambition and family-oriented approach to his new business.

The drinks reception to celebrate the reopening of the bistro took place on April 27. According to the tenant, there will not be any major changes yet; he wants to wait for customer feedback first. However, a classic bistro offering of salads, bratwurst, chips, beer and wine can be expected.

Unterägeri lido
The Lido in Unterägeri is still under the management of Markus and Martina Biermann. This tenant couple also rely on the same opening hours, prices and catering offers that worked well last year. Martina Biermann is also positive about the weather: "If the weather forecasters are to be believed, then it will be a good season. We'll take the weather as it comes and then react accordingly. Of course, we're hoping for a warm summer."      

Finally, there is also an innovation at the Ägeribad, as Sandra Trottmann, assistant to the management, announces: "From June, food and drinks can be ordered and paid for directly from the beach towel the Oberägeri lido using the Looporder app at. A text message will let you know when the food is ready for collection." Almost 20 events are planned at Restaurant Lago this summer, from music performances and wine tastings to barbecue and raclette evenings. The menu is varied, and a tapas menu is also currently being planned.

Sandra Trottmann is optimistic about the new season: "Things always go well for us. Many locals stay in the valley over the summer and we are expecting a good tourist season."
In bad weather, guests can let off steam in the indoor pool and use the wellness area with sauna, steam bath and Kneipp baths.
