Think of train without imagining a piece of cherry pie at the same time. Impossible, isn't it? No other symbol is as strongly associated with Zug as the cherry and the specialties created from it. But where do the Zug cherry trees come from? Have they always been there? Who invented the Zug cherry pie? Questions upon questions, which we are happy to answer here.
