About the Lassalle-Haus


It has been said that «the longest journey is the journey inwards»: the Lassalle-Haus, educational centre founded by the Swiss Jesuits, will help you find your way – be it by means of Zen meditation, yoga, Ignatian exercises or Christian contemplation. 

Situated in the rolling hills above the small but thriving town of Zug, the centre hosts a wide variety of courses, retreats and events aiming not only to direct us to our inner source and thereby strengthen our self-knowledge, but also sharpen our mind and raise our awareness for the major issues of our time.

The building, a masterpiece by the Swiss architect André Studer, is conceived according to the principles of «harmonic architecture», in which all proportions equal musical intervals and is said to have its own characteristic sound. The well-known landscape gardener Josef Seleger combined house and park into a harmonious whole. Openness and silence, outstanding architecture and relaxing nature, spiritual impulses and culinary delights: this is what awaits guests at the Lassalle-Haus – a fascinating centre for those looking to contribute a new perspective to business and society.

​​The Lassalle-Haus is located close to Zug, in the heart of Switzerland. The location can easily be reached from Zürich Airport with public transport (train/bus) within 90 minutes.

Zug is very much a multi-cultural centre. Indeed, it is because of the economically-friendly, unbureaucratic mentality of the authorities that many Swiss and foreign companies decide to move to Zug. In all over 120 nations are represented, which is why many locals are multilingual, though German is the official language. During your stay, be sure to enjoy a stroll through the medieval old town, and don’t miss out on a slice of the famous «Kirschtorte”, the typical cherry liquor cake.
