Holiday pass pre-sale
Only holders of the holiday pass will be eligible to register for events. In addition, the pass entitles its holder to free admission to most public indoor and outdoor pools in the canton, one-time admission to a miniature golf course of choice, up to three game rentals from select toy libraries, and 15% off children’s books at Balmer Buchhaus. The pass can be obtained from UBS branches in Zug and Rotkreuz from June 18 to midday on June 26 for CHF 30 or online for CHF 33.
Holders of the holiday pass are further entitled to purchase the Zuger Pass at a discounted rate of CHF 19. This enables free travel across all ZVB public transport modes (including ferries) for the duration of the programme, regardless of what holiday pass activities are undertaken. Please note that most events will require a form of valid public transport ticket, so the additional purchase of a Zuger Pass is recommended.
In addition, full-day care inclusive of excursions is available at a daily surcharge of CHF 50 via the FEPA-Club. The children of working parents will be entertained from 8.30am to 5pm (drop-off from 7.30am). Slots are in high demand and a swift reservation is highly recommended.
The full events programme is due to be posted online on June 20. Registration for weekly events opens respectively at 1pm on the Monday of the previous week (i.e. first release on June 29 for events week commencing July 6). Events sell out extremely fast and can be booked one of two ways: online using the login provided on the holiday pass or by phone. Available slots vary per event and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis – if your child is unable to take up their place, please make sure to cancel in advance to give another child the chance to participate instead.
This year, new rules will apply in compliance with government guidelines for a safe carrying out of all events. Please familiarise yourself with all guidelines issued prior to the purchase of a GGZ Zug Holiday Pass. Top-line, hygiene and social distancing measures will be in place, the number of participants per event limited, and mingling among adults at meeting points prohibited. Where possible, it is advised that children travel alone to events or only with necessary accompanying persons. Children will also be required to bring their own refreshments and due to limited availability will only be allowed to participate in max. 5 events per week. Anybody displaying symptoms will be sent home.
