The Municipality of Baar
The second capital
Baar has developed tremendously over recent years despite having been in the shadow of Zug for so long. Many companies are based here and express trains stop at its station.
While its centre may be built up, there are beautiful rural areas, too, such as the Baarburg and the Lorzentobel, a ravine with the River Lorze flowing through it. Then the Höllgrotten Caves are also a popular place to visit. Locals certainly know how to enjoy themselves with the lively Fasnacht (carnival) celebrations and the Chilbi fair, not to mention Baar beer which is brewed here. Cheers!
