Unesco World Heritage lake dwellers

Visit the archaeological finds from lake zug

Did you know that there is a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Canton of Zug? Three villages from the time of the lake dwellers (Pfahlbauer) lie beneath the earth, invisible and well protected. The unique archaeological finds from these and other lake dweller sites are easily accessible, however. On a tour of the Museum of Prehistory, experts will show you how these findings provide us with a wide range of knowledge about early settlements in the area of the Alps.
