It is the biggest town as well as the capital of the canton of Zug. It is nestled between the Zugerberg mountain and the Lake Shore. Besides being a beautiful city, Zug is an economic center as it is the seat for many renowned companies. The Zyt tower provides an enchanting view of the city’s several landmarks including Zug mountain, Old Town, and Lake Zug.
It is also well-known for the witnessing sunset and sunrise as the red, orange and yellow hues reflect on the shimmery water of the lake and create a celestial scenario to watch over. The 13th-century old Zyt tower was just a wall entrance to the Old town earlier. But as the years pass by, it has been renovated and received additional structures.
At present, it is adorned with a steep hipped roof and bay windows. Besides, there is an astronomical clock featuring four hands under the large Zyt clock that was built in 1574. This astronomical clock indicates the leap year, the month, the phase of the moon, and the week.
The other two landmarks of the Old town are the church of St. Oswald and the Late Gothic Town Hall which belong to the same epoch.
