  • It was fully packed as visited on the last sunny weekend in September. The water is good for swimming but as not that deep did not seem to be the best choice. Facilities are OK but not as clean as at ...  more »
  • When it gets hot at the weekend, to avoid the cat Lake, then too many people at swimming. It is the only Badi who is still free. On weekdays in the evening you can enjoy however the Lake to the fullest. A nice spot on the outskirts of Zurich.

  • Nice (and free) Badi on a shallow and warm lake. OK food options and a really nice restaurant less than ten minutes walk away. Space for naturists. Sadly the parking and public transport options are really bad.
  • Very nice place to swim and relax. Water is usually warm. Bad is very well maintained, has dressing rooms and showers. It's very crowded on weekends
  • Toller Moorsee, am besten mit Velo oder öv
  • The lage is nice and there are barbecues but the water is a bit muddy. It is a free bady. There are a Bar Restaurant and toilets everything free.
  • Great place to have a BBQ and a swim
