Cherries here we come!

Day programme on the theme of cherries

Would you like to find out more about the traditions associated with the cherry in the picturesque Old Town of Zug and enjoy tasting some products made with them while at the same time enjoying spectacular alpine views?
Your journey starts with an introduction to distilling at the Brandenberg restaurant, where the master distiller will welcome you and tell you all you need to know about the art of distilling. Under expert guidance you will be able to fill the still, as it is known, with cherry mash and soon you will be drinking kirsch from your own bottle.
The journey then continues by ship over Lake Zug while enjoying a splendid cherry menu at the same time. This is not possible in winter, but you can still enjoy the tastiest of cherry products and some Zug specialities at the Schiff restaurant which is right on the lake shore.

After lunch there is a guided tour of the Old Town, where you will learn in an amusing way how this one-time fishing village developed into the Swiss capital of cherries and how life in the Old Town was nowhere as attractive as it is today.
