Cool down in Limmat
Why locals love it
For many people in Zurich, the public bath ("badi") culture is very important. This particular place is popular among many people. It has a family-friendly pool in the upper part, and a beautiful old wooden part extending into the river. The place offers some action, too: You can walk up, jump into the river, float down, start again..
Why you should visit it
It's a great place to cool down on a hot summer day. There is some shadow thanks to trees on the first and second level. The lowest level consists of wooden platform right above the river, the best place to catch some sun and observe people jumping into the river and floating by. For good swimmers only, the current is usually pretty strong.
There are several events taking place here as well (summer season only): Open air cinema "filmfluss", and the lounge/bar "flussbar" every tuesday.
