Baarburg

Baarburg is the name of the dominating hill to the east of Baar. The geometrical form and the cave (Erdmandliloch: ~hole of earth trolls) have probably animated the fantasy.
Anyway, a round tour and/or the climb is rewarding.

To the Top

Zug - Baar (Bus 3 or 14 to "Brauerei" or "Laettich") km hrs

From bus stop Brauerei (Brewery) we walk along the former spinning mill to the roundabout, then straight ahead up to the Schiesstand (rifle shooting range).

At the parking a road is leading to Bruederhus and Chapel "Heiligkreuz", then on into the forest. Later a track will cross a little gully and after some stairs we're again on a forest road. The trail proceeds in a steady ascent to our lookout.

During the rifle shooting you may prefer the other, unmarked road: along the parking, straight on and after a while into the forest. There, after hitting an other track, turn left. After 100 m you're on the "official" walking trail again.

The top loop offers two lovely lookouts: To the West the view stretches over Baar, the Zugersee to Pilatus. To the South: Zugerberg and Rigi. At the southern lookout there is a fireplace and a shelter.

Partly, we're using the same trail as above, but we save the climb to the top and enter the hilly scenery behind the mountain. At Baarburgrank (a sharp bend in the main road Baar-Neuheim) we follow that road for about 50 meters. Then we turn left for the road to Walterswil. After about 20 Minutes we're there. There is a church and the "International School of Zug" (www.isoz.ch).

Here, we choose the track to the left, it runs above church and school property's into the forest again. In a steady ascent we surround the western part of the hill and finally reach the starting point.
