On a total of 850m2 we offer everything the boulder-heart desires: never ending walls, warm up zone, grottos, topout-area, system wall, campus board and much more. The BoulderArea is located in the heart of the city of Zug. A four minutes’ walk from the train station and embedded within the “Freiruum” project.

Our reception staff will be happy to welcome you and give you information about bouldering, available rental equipment and about our prices. Our route building- team builds “boulder problems” from easy to hard, ensuring that everyone can have a great time. For a perfect introduction into the world of bouldering we recommend attending one of our courses.

Individuals, couples, families and small private groups can visit us without bookings during our opening hours. Organised groups with more than eight people, such as school classes, teams and companies, would profit from our special offers and rates when making a group booking.

What is bouldering

Bouldering is climbing without a rope for physically active people of any age. Above high-jump mats you can now experience the most impressive movement adventures: balance, body perception, creativity and certainly also some tenacity are required – feeling, endurance and strength will follow automatically!

Fundamentally, everyone can and should be able to boulder in our BoulderArea. That is why we have “boulder problems” of different varieties for all skill levels – in other words, from comfortable all the way to brutally difficult, we have enough of everything.

Who can boulder

Bouldering is fun alone, in pairs or in groups. In any case, you can come by and clear your head in your lunch break, let off some steam when you need it or just pass your spare time pursuing an awesome sport in a great atmosphere.

If you would like to come to the BoulderArea with a group or organise a team event, we have special offers for you. For more information or an individual quote just put in a noncommittal inquiry.

If you are an individual guest over the age of 13, you can come and boulder independently. If you are under 13 years of age you need to be accompanied by a person who is of full age.

The prerequisites for the utilisation of our installation are the same for all users: a signed declaration of consent and the compliance with our user regulations.

How do I learn how to boulder

Generally speaking you can start to boulder on your own. If you would like to apply your existing capabilities in a perfect way from the onset or want to develop your skills in a focused way however, we recommend checking out our available courses.

Our instructors will introduce you to bouldering in a way that is suitable and appropriate given your precondition. You will receive tipps for the right kind of warm-up, an introduction into techniques and tactics as well as suggestions regarding injury prevention. If you want to approach bouldering a little more ambitiously we can also offer advice on training ideas and further tipps. That way you will receive all the necessary information about bouldering presented in a succinct and fun manner.



In our courses, an instructor looks after you in manageable groups. It does not matter if you have never bouldered or already have experience. Either way, we will focus on your individual abilities – without overstraining you.
