Upper Letten River Pool – Swimming in the Limmat in the Middle of the City

The Upper Letten River Pool is not far upstream from the Swiss National Museum.

You can cool off on hot summer days with a jump into the Limmat in the middle of Zurich. The Upper Letten River Pool is a popular meeting spot and has a 400 meter-long (1,312 feet) swimming canal and a two meter (6.5 feet) high diving board. There are two beach volleyball fields and a place for playing boule on the opposite side of the river.

Whoever prefers to take it easy can sunbathe on one of the sun terraces with a book from the book boxes provided by the Bühl Foundation. You can get refreshments at the bar when you feel like it too.
