Stories of a Zytturm keeper



Exciting theatre tour around the landmark of Zug.

Join us on an informative, amusing, theatrical tour to the Zug landmark with the historic zytturm guardian. You will meet the historically costumed Zytturmwächter at the scene of the event: under the 770-year-old Zytturm in Zug. You can't miss the tower guard in his blue and white striped trousers, heavy coat, tower guard hat and lantern.
Of course he greets the visitors in real Zug dialect. First he shows you his tower and his "Wächterstübli" from the outside and tells you amazing things about the former city gate, the pillory and the old town life. Then it's time for the slow climb up into the tower. Balz Utiger, as the "Zyttumwächter" calls himself, knows how to inspire young and old with his lively, humorous descriptions and anecdotes.

A guided tour by Zug Tourism from the pen of Judith Stadlin and the research of Michael van Orsouw.
