  • 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 »

  • This ‘hidden’ swimming badi is located a bit out of the way and I would say certainly used mostly by locals. This lake is accessible by public transit with several options. The S-Bahn (S6) from Zurich...  more »

  • Thake a breack out from the city.. no signs of civilisation here..
  • Great place to hang out during the summer. Usually not crowded early in the morning.
  • Lovely, free and local lake for swimming
  • also a picnic spot in summer
  • 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.

Where to stay in Zurich

As the financial hub of the country, it shouldn't come as a surprise that staying in Zurich usually comes at a price. The city puts emphasis on its glamorous four- and five-star hotels and international chains that appeal to traveling professionals. There a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler. When staying in Zurich, you'll find that the majority of the accommodation offerings are in close proximity to the city core, either on the left or right bank. The left bank is the glitzier of the two, with its grand restaurants, shops, and proximity to the banks and train station. The right side, as home to the Old Town, charms with its historical atmosphere. Here you'll find independently owned boutique hotels and some mid-range options. The city also sports several hotels geared toward wellness, with spas and saunas. These tend to be pricey too, but you're guaranteed a truly relaxing retreat.
