Dolder Bad – the Outdoor Pool High Above the Rooftops of Zurich

In summer, the Dolder swimming pool, located in a spot surrounded by woodland, is a popular haunt among locals and visitors alike.

The popular outdoor swimming pool, the Dolder Bad, is situated on a meadow surrounded by idyllic woodland. The 50m (164ft) pool and the 10,000 sq.m (108,000 sq.ft) leisure and play area are just a few minutes’ walk from the top station of the Dolderbahn cog railway and are thus very easy to reach.

A minigolf course, table tennis tables and a volleyball grass court provide plenty of variety for all those who, in addition to sunbathing, like to be active.

In summer, the open-air facility hosts events such as “Art at the Dolder Bad” or “Humor at the Dolder Bad”. Directly next to the bathing facility is an outdoor ice-skating rink, which is extremely popular among the locals in winter.
