What I do not like about Zug

(Golden city submitted by Gabrielle at the Zug Photo Contest) There are two things that people ask me all the time since I started One of them is this (in their own words): “For real? You like Zug so much? You like everything here? There is nothing you hate?”. Fair question. I understand that I might come across as Santa Claus on Prozac at Christmas in Disneyland! That happy.

Ein Interview mit Karl Kobelt, unser Stadtpräsident von Zug

(Interview with Karl Kobelt in English) Als Karl Kobelt zu einem Interview zustimmte, war ich aus den naheliegenden Gründen überrascht, aber vor allem beeindruckt. Die Teilnahme am neuen Zuger Blog zeigt eine aufgeschlossene, moderne und selbstbewusste Führungskraft. Das Gespräch, das wir in seinem Büro hatten, bestätigte all das und noch einiges mehr. Wir haben beide etwas gemeinsam: Er ist neu im Amt des Zuger Stadtpräsidenten und ich bin neu in der Stadt. Das war also die Grundlage für dieses Interview. Ich bin ein neuer Einwohner in Zug und würde gerne mehr über ihn, den neuen Stadtpräsidenten, und seine Pläne...

Spring seems to be here and summer will be coming soon… probably.  Yes, we do have summer in Zug. It’s nice, quite hot and not so long, so you won’t get bored, of course! First thing that comes to my mind when I say summer is… Ice Cream, what else!

Quick guide for the...
