Zug Castle

Zug Castle is a castle in the municipality of Zug of the Canton of Zug in Switzerland. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance.

The first castle on the site was probably a wooden manor house built around 1000 and owned by a ministerialis family in service to either the Counts of Aargau or of Lenzburg. Based on archeological excavations, it was built on an island between two small streams and surrounded by a wooden palisade. While the local nobleman occupied the house and island, his men built a village along the streams. Later the streams were dammed to prevent flooding.
