A long time ago Bohlgutsch was the site of an ancient castle, perched high atop the hill with an unobstructed 360 degree view. For more than 20 years the Austrian moralist, contemporary critic and author Johannes Mario Simmel took his inspirations from the marvellous atmosphere of the area and the romantic sunsets. Today the hill is an exclusive residential area with breath-taking views over the City of Zug, the lake and the mountains. The Bohlgutsch residential complex is stylish and unique: noble, discreet luxury, sun throughout the day, peaceful location, yet just a short walk away from the city center and the lake of Zug.
