WELCOME TO ZUG
- On behalf of the town council I have pleasure in welcoming you to Zug and to our website. We are delighted to have this opportunity of providing you with information about our town and canton. And if you are coming to Zug to live, you will find some important information relating to the local authorities, the educational system, public transport, commerce, the residential and cultural facilities x and, in addition, some valuable tips on everyday living in the town and canton of Zug.
As you walk round the town, even though it is busy and bustling you will find it hard to believe that here you are in the capital of one of the smallest cantons in Switzerland, with only 11 communities and just 100'000 inhabitants: in a town in which 24'000 people live, but over 26'000 work. But Zug is by no means a provincial backwater: more than 90 nationalities are represented here, giving it a vibrant and cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Our internationally renowned centre for commerce and the service industries is backed by excellent infrastructure, with modern educational establishments offering a high standard of education for its work force. The industrial sector, developing and producing goods to the highest technical standards, also benefits from these facilities.
For several years now Zug, both town and canton, has been focused on extending its infrastructure with forward-looking investment projects: particularly in the education, health, geriatric care, leisure and sport sectors, as well as on supply and disposal issues. Town development plans and projects for traffic control urgently await implementation.
Esteemed guest, we wish you a very enjoyable stay in Zug and would be happy to welcome you shortly as a resident. If you have any questions regarding your stay or a corporate move to Zug - or about life in Zug in general, we are here to help you. Direct contact with the local authorities is just one of the many advantages of our small and lively town.
Dolfi Mueller, Mayor
