If you’re in Zug and have 10 minutes to spare, climb the tower and appreciate the views. If you have 10 more minutes, enjoy the delightful shop where you get the key to the tower. What nice operators and cute items to bring home! ❤️

A great view of Zug from up the top of the tower, quite easy to climb. Some more signage on it’s history would have been good. There is a table and chairs up the top to eat or sit at.

The clock-tower and the around area is a must see in Zug. You can have a walk around the streets and near the lake. It is wonderful and calm.

Very near to the ethereum foundation, so it was quite interesting for me. We didn't go inside the clock tower, door was locked

Zug's clocktower is definitely a must-visit and an architectural marvel in its own right. You can actually climb to the top of the clocktower and get an amazing view of the city. Other than that, the tower is at the entrance to the old town.
