Another cool place.....
Halle 44 is along the train tracks on the way to Baar. It is easily reachable by car. It is primarily a workshop for the unemployed. Here you can find all kinds of things ranging from handmade itens (made from the stuff we give to Ökihof). They have a laundrymat where you can wash and dry your clothes (laundry soap is included in the price.) From May to October, they offer bikes on loan in various places around Zug. They also take old, unused bikes, fix them up and they are then sent to Africa. Halle 44 has a library where books are free (you may take up to 10 books at a time.)
What especially great is that Halle 44 rents large grills for CHF 40.00 (March through November). reservations can be made on-line.
