Attractions and noteworthy things

Distances are based on the centre of the city/town and sightseeing location.

Lake Zug

Lake Zug is a lake in Central Switzerland, situated between Lucerne and Zurich. The Lorze as the main feeder river empties its waters into the lake at its northern extremity, but 1 km (0.6 mi) further west issues from the lake to pursue its course towards the Reuss. Due to this poor feeding, Environmental protection is very important as the lake would suffer long term damage if polluted as the second of the rivers, Rigiaa, feeds only a marginal amount into the lake at its southern end.

Located at 47.1167, 8.48333 (Lat. / Lng.), about 3 miles away.
