Schanzengraben River Pool – Men's Pool in the Middle of Zurich

The Schanzengraben River Pool is located very centrally in Zurich and is only open for men.

The cozy men's pool at Schanzengraben is Zurich's oldest swimming facility and has been in operation since 1864. It is located in a moat from the 17th century and surrounded by the remains of an old Zurich city wall and the former Botanical Garden.

You lie on wood planks on the water, and swimming is easy thanks to the slow current. Especially because the pool is not very big, it provides an intimate and peaceful ambiance in the middle of the city and far from its hectic pace. The Riminibar opens its doors there in the evenings when the weather is good – both for men and women.
