The Zugerberg’s extensive highland and lowland moors make it one of the most significant moorland landscapes in Switzerland. More than 80 km of marked hiking trails allow you to observe the many moorland plants, insects and animals here in their damp habitat. The moors are also known for being sources of peat in the past. Peat was cut here until the early 1980s. Wooden sheds called “Turbenhäuschen” bear witness to this era. Pieces of dry peat, called “Turben”, used to be stored here.
