During the day or on warm summer evenings, both tourists and locals flock to these summer hotspots on the lookout for relaxation and cool drinks.

After dusk, a number of riverside and lakeside bathing facilities are transformed into bars on the water’s edge. In these "Badi-Bars", as the locals call them, guests can take in concerts, readings or movie screenings with a cocktail in their hand and a gentle lake breeze in their hair.
