The Seebad Enge outdoor bathing facility offers relaxation ‒ in summer with swimming, in winter in the sauna – and a fabulous view over Lake Zurich.

The Seebad Enge offers a swimming pool for women and a mixed-sex pool, both with lake access. The 44 meter (144 ft) long swimming lanes are anchored in the lake and enclosed by wooden planks. Visitors are treated to a spectacular view over Lake Zurich, the lakeside promenade, and the Alps on the horizon. Shiatsu, classic massages, and yoga courses are also offered. In addition, it is possible to hire stand up paddling equipment and book SUP courses.
At the kiosk, which houses a barbecue and bar, guests can enjoy light lunches, seasonal salads, oven-fresh bakery goods, and – in the evenings – barbecue specialties. The Seebad Enge swimming area also operates a sauna outside of the swimming season.
The two-part bath was built by Robert Landolt in 1959/60 and is thus one of Zurich’s youngest outdoor bathing facilities. The concrete construction is styled on the city’s traditional wooden box baths. Once segregated into men’s and women’s areas, nowadays the bath has still retained its women’s section, while the men’s side has given way to a mixed-sex area. The bath floats on the water and is accessed via a 30 meter (100ft) long wooden walkway.
