Outdoor adventures, cooking courses, arts and crafts, and a whole load more – the GGZ Zug Holiday Pass is back. From July 11 to July 29 there will be a grand 350 events bookable for primary school children living in canton Zug or Meierskappel (LU) and entering grades 1 to 7 after summer. The holiday pass along with the Zuger Pass, which grants children traveling to and from activities access to the entire public transport network are now available for purchase.
Holiday pass pre-sale
Only holders of the holiday pass will be eligible to register for events. In addition, the pass encompasses many other perks including free admission to most public indoor and outdoor pools in the canton, one-time admission to a miniature golf course, 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 23 to midday on July 1 for CHF 30 or immediately online for CHF 33.
Holiday pass holders 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 60 via the FEPA-Club. Children will be entertained from 8.30am to 5pm (drop-off from 7.30am). Slots are already filling up and a swift reservation is highly recommended - a schedule overview is available in German here.
The full events schedule is due to be posted online in June. Registration for weekly events opens respectively at 1pm on the Monday of the previous week. 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.
We also recommend that you familiarise yourself with all rules and regulations prior to the purchase of a GGZ Zug Holiday Pass.
