InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Zug

Hello to all Americans in Zug! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Zug? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Zug which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Zug is a global economic hub. The thriving metropolis is a wealthy city known for not only its delicious chocolate, cheese, and high-quality watches, but also for its first-class travel connections, fascinating old town, two beautiful lakes, Zugerberg mountain, and much more! With the extensive public transportation system consisting of bus, suburban railway, funicular railway, and ferry services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the more rural suburbs of Zug, which are an easy commute away from Zug’s center.

Although Zug has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Zug, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
