Stierenmarkt Bull Market

Guest / culture / city guide

The bull stables are the in the part of the city known as Zug-West , so called after the Bull Market which takes place in September.


The young bulls at the market come from all over Switzerland. You can see fully-grown specimens there, too; ones which command a certain respect. Fortunately you will notice they are tied up. The farmers come not only to buy and sell them but to compare the results of their skills in breeding them and catch up on all the latest bovine gossip. While the market is primarily something for the farmers, it is attended by many other people, too. You have only to see how popular it is by seeing how many people flock to the full the marquees.
