Zuger Lake with Bjoern Rosner

Contributor Bjoern Rosner brings us on a wintery tour of beautiful Zuger Lake (aka Lake Aug), situated between Lake Lucerne and Lake Zurich.

This two-ride collection features a flat tour around the lake and one climb up past the snowline of Sattle where you’ll ride along snow-covered pastures.

You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App.

ZUGERLAKE CLOCKWISE TO IMMENSEE

This sunny Spring ride follows the edge of the Zuger Lake in Switzerland in a clockwise fashion, taking in the more scenic first half of the full lake loop. The ride starts in Oberwil bei Zug with the Rigi mountain and its characteristic layered appearance looming ahead. As we get closer, we pass the town of Walchwil and follow the lake until we reach Arth where the road bends right as we reach the southern-most end of the lake. We turn towards the Rigi mountain and eventually have it to our left as we continue to Immensee. From there a short uphill section to the end point of this short but sweet ride.

ZUGER LAKE AND AEGERI LAKE TOUR

This late Winter ride will take you in sunny weather from the town of Zug counter-clockwise around the Zuger Lake with beautiful views to the RIgi and WIldspitz mountains, with the Mythen peaks visible in the distance. From Arth, it goes up and up via Goldau and Steinerberg to Sattel. As you climb the snow line will get closer and eventually you will ride along snow-covered pastures. From Sattel, the ride goes along the Aegeri Lake and through its towns, decorated for Fasnacht (Carnival) with colourful flags spanning the roads. Finally, the descent leads you back to Zug and with a short finish along the Zugerlake, the ride ends very near to the starting point.
