The Fishing Museum

Since the end of the 19th century there has been a hatchery and a fishing museum in Zug. The name “Zug” comes from “Fischzug” meaning fish draught. From December to May one can observe the eggs and spawn of the fine “Rötel” (red trout) from Lake Zug, as well as whitefish, pike and brown trout. The hatching glass – a renowned Zug invention dating back to 1882 – can be seen here along with curiosities like bridal wreaths made out of fish scales and human fish.
