We liked the caves a lot. Adventurous for kids, well prepared and lighted and connected to an area of Kanton Zug where you can do so much more including a great for dinner/ lunch nearby.

All what you expect from a cave. High variety of beautiful formations and scenery. Absolutely worth the trip if you are staying in the Lucerne or Zurich area. Thee is a typical Kiosk that sells the tickets, but also snacks and drinks. The Cave consists out of 2 levels with stairs to climb. After exiting a small walk back down... More

This is a good place to go for a few hours if you need something "adventurous" to do with a mixed group of people .... the caves are not too extensive, well lit and there is not much climbing to do. Clothes will remain clean since you hardly ever need to bend or squeeze through any small passages.... They are... More

This wonderfully lit cave with different colored light just give you goose bumps as you walk past the narrow path way. The formations are of numerous kinds more than an experienced cave traveller can even think of. Besides the formations look wet and live as if still undergoing transformation. Its all the cave wonders packed in a small place and... More

They have just renovated the caves. There are two caves now. It is very interesting to see how it is inside the mountain. The stories to the cavities are entertaining. It is quite cool inside and it is very good when you want to cool down during summer time. You can park close to it or park in Baar and... More

Not the easiest attraction to find - but definitely worth the effort:) GPS and Iphone just couldn't seem to find the exact country road to get us to these caves, but after asking directions several times we found the little sign pointing to the narrow road that leads to the caves, an active small river and a very nice restaurant....

It is very interesting inside but you need to walk a lot and it is a good one go tour but the restaurant that is by the cave serves one of the best rosti and onion gravy sauce

The Hollgrotten Caves Baar is located about 15 minutes’ drive outside of Zug. Open daily 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. from April to the end of October. This site offers plenty of parking and is located at the edge of the Lorze ravine. There is a kiosk at the trail head where you can purchase your tickets (Adults CHF10, children CHF5) and... More

You walk from the car park to the entrance which is a sort of kiosk, then buy your ticket and enter the cave network. Various "rooms" of stalagtites and mites await you, with imaginative descriptions of the forms. Take good shoes and waterproof clothes as it is (obviously) a place where water drips.

Well worth a visit, a little tricky to find so look out for their signposts. It's down quite a narrow lane. The caves are great and not too commercial.
