Suggestions for this weekend?

Hi, we are new to Switzerland and to EF. We are looking for short somethings to do this weekend...day trips. We have two small dogs and would like to take them along if possible. We live in Zug, would like to be outside if it is not raining. We were thinking about going to Pilatus if it is clear one day or maybe Ticino. Any suggestions?

Those are both lovely places, and if you haven't been, it's a nice day trip.

Or nip up Rigi with the dogs and a picnic. There is a small restaurant up there.

It's a wine tasting weekend in the French region -- lots of cellars are open.

Cool boat-ride Geneva - Lausanne or Lausanne - Montreaux. Ticino or Lugano should be nice too. Anything should be awesome that either has a lake at the bottom or panoramic view from the mountains.

Since you are in Zug, I would recommend the Mythenregion in Schwyz-Einsiedeln, they seem to have nice attractions and dog-friendly routes.

Let's just hope the weather changes soon...

Probably not so interesting for you, but for people in the Luzern area, the new tunnel in Ebikon is open for visitors on foot today, between 10:00 and 16:30. Zubringerfest.

It opens to vehicles on the 22nd of June so this is the last chance for the public to visit on foot. They had it open 1.5 years ago when only the pilot tunnel was completed. The locals really like to dig.

I'd really recommend a weekend-trip to Lugano. I've been there last summer and it's very very beautiful! Delicious food, we came across many italian restaurants. Te lake-side is beautiful and if you are into gambling, there's a nice casino

Another favorite of mine is Gruyère. http://www.la-gruyere.ch/de/welcome.cfm
It's a beautiful area/village to walk around where you can eat the local specialty "meringues avec la crème double
