Outdoor Pools in Zürich

Zurich is a place to cool down with a summer swim in the river or lake.

Everyone finds a favorite place to swim in Zurich. Women meet at the ladies only Frauenbad am Stadthausquai, and men at the Freibad am Schanzengraben. And both these public pools open their doors as trendy outdoor bars under the stars in the evening.

At the Seebad Enge a lake swim is combined with views of the snow-capped Alps, at the Strandbad Mythenquai there's a 250-meter-long beach and at the Oberer and Unterer Letten river baths you discover a popular place to swim, chiefly for young adults, whereas the Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen is a bathing paradise for kids.
