Zugang (German for "Access") was a zine from Richmond, Indiana, U.S.A.

Published in the late 1980's , Zugang covered the punk and hardcore scene. The first issue of the zine was entitled Impaled Details but by the second issue the name had changed to Zugang and would remain so for the next seven issues. Interviews with bands were featured prominently in each issue. Also included was writing on politics, religion, racism, tax resistance, straight edge, and censorship. Occasionally zines such as But A Twist of the Lip, Disfiguration, Endless Resistance, Hippycore, No KKK No Fascist USA, Poison Planet, Rank Amateur Press, Storm Warning, and Time To Unite were reviewed. Contributors were Beij, Stevec Bones, Christy C., Rob C., Carl Casanova, Rick Da Beast, Laura G., Johnni, Edward Mycue, David Reynolds, Dave Wave, Paul Weinman, and Sigmund Weiss. Zugang was a photocopied cut and paste zine that was published by Lisa L and was always free.
