The Symposium also offers cultural and social activities featuring national and international artists. Moreover, it is possible to explore the fantastic landscape and various cultural centers in Central Switzerland, for instance a trip up to the top of the mountain Rigi (either by train or hiking) where you will have a great view of the surrounding valleys and alps or to the old town of Luzerne to see the Chapel Bridge etc. From Lucerne it is possible to go on a boat trip on the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee) to see the „Rütliwiese“ where Switzerland was founded. A visit to Zurich, the business city with an international atmosphere, is also worthwhile. Information, photos and videos about the conference venue Zug and its surroundings you will find here.

Museum of Prehistory
The Museum of Prehistory offers a contemporary exhibition for schools and families, enthusiasts and experts. The archaeological finds from Canton Zug are presented in a lively manner. A tour with true-to-life scenes, settlement models and stories visualises everyday life from the Ice Age to the Early Middle Ages. The section ′rare witnesses′ is devoted to extraordinary wooden artefacts from Lake Zug. A nostalgic corner shows how archaeology was presented long ago. At special events in the museum garden, visitors can find plants from the Ice Age or Roman herbs. Adults are also permitted to visit the children′s gallery, provided they are not afraid of climbing up the rope ladder.
You can book these options when registering for the Symposium. The public transportation ticket will be delivered via email.
