Our Location

Our Swiss International Boarding school enjoys the peace and beauty of Switzerland and connections with the world through the international hub that is Zurich

Our boarding school is in the heart of Switzerland. We look down from the Zugerberg mountain onto the lively city of Zug, so our campus is secluded and yet we are easy to reach. Zurich International Airport is only one hour away, shortening the distance even if home is on the other side of the globe. Lucerne is rich with culture and history and close by. 

Zug, an economically thriving city and headquarters to many multinational companies, has an attractive setting by the lake. A short ride on a funicular railway takes you to our 60-acre campus. The train climbs, steeply. You see farmland with cattle grazing and then forest, maybe foxes or deer. At the top of the line you will find our Swiss international boarding school, Institut Montana. 

We are surrounded by pre-alpine meadows and forests and we enjoy fresh water from our own spring. It’s an inspiring place to study and a revitalising place to be healthy. The tracks that lead from our doors are there to explore with hiking boots or bikes. In winter, you might travel across the same landscape, now white with snow, on sledges or cross-country skis. 

Our campus is more than a school, it can be your mountain home.
