Illuminated Paths in Canton Zug

We present an overview of all festive trails to enjoy from dusk this winter season!

Baar - 1 December to 7 January

This year, the Lichterweg (light trail) in Baar is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. Around 2000 lights will light up the 1.5km trail at the foot of the Baarburg and various events such as choir performances, storytelling and Samichlaus are planned too. Starting point of the trail is Wishalde by the Shell petrol station and Volvo garage.

Hünenberg - 1 December to 5 January

Hünenberg was one of the first to introduce a festively lit pathway in 1999. The 1.5km trail that starts at the crossing Zentrumstrasse-‚ÄčLangrütistrasse this year is lit by LEDs and offers a lovely view over Lake Zug. Also planned is an evening apero on the orchard Hubel on 14 December. Swing by and enjoy punch or mulled wine with locals. 

Cham - 1 December to 2 January

110 lanterns will light up the Villette Park for the second time. Refreshments can be enjoyed at the Restaurant Villa-Villette during opening hours and musical accompaniment is planned on the first three Advent Sundays if the weather permits. Additonally, there will also be a stand at Hirsgarten serving punch, mulled wine and soup every Friday to Sunday. Please note that until 21 December the path will only be lit from Thursday to Sunday, thereafter daily.

Walchwil - 1 December to 24 December

Lights will also burn in Walchwil. An approximately 800-metre-long trail leads from the chapel St. Antonius to the Zipfli-Stübli, where passers-by are welcomed with warm drinks, soup and fondue. Please note that the path will only be lit from Friday to Sunday.

Unteraegeri - 2 December to 2 January

This trail was originally launched to mark the 300th anniversary of the Catholic parish within the municipality. Every year a lantern is added and now there are an astounding 309 lanterns along 3km that volunteers light by hand every night. The trail begins at the Allmendkappelle and leads back to the village where trail access is signposted. On weekends, you can take a break at the Laternenstübli to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.

Zugerberg - 6 December to 7 January

Last but not least, a 1.2km trail will also be available on the Zugerberg and will lead from the mountain station to the Zugiblubbi house, where an illuminated nativity scene awaits. During this time, the Zugerbergbahn will run every 15 minutes from 5pm to 9pm. Those who are hoping to walk through a snowy landscape will probably have their best chance here!
