The Zugerberg (el. 1,039 m.) is a mountain overlooking Zug and Lake Zug in the canton of Zug. It lies approximately halfway between Lake Zug and Lake Ägeri.

The Zugerbergbahn funicular connects the Zugerberg from Zug. The upper station is located at a height of 925 metres and is a popular vantage point as well as a recreational area. The summit proper is entirely wooded.

A road pass named Sätteli (975 m) is located north of the summit.
