Take off your Top: Zurich Swim Culture

I didn’t know that the real definition of Frauenbad was topless sunbathing area, but I now am more educated.

Actually, at the Zürich Frauenbad, you get both extremes: from women fully covered in burkinis to women wearing nothing but their g-strings. Personally, I preferred the burkinis. But the men lingering on their little boats (and out on the balcony of the office building overlooking the Frauenbad) were definitely there for the latter.

I guess nothing says you’re in Europe like women sunbathing topless on a river deck and men on little boats in even smaller red speedos staring at these women through matching red sunglasses.

Previously, I had only been to the Frauenbad at night, when it is converted into a barefoot bar open to both sexes.

It’s much more interesting during the day.

Aloha! I found your blog via Hattie's Web.

I spent 3 days in Zurich in November 1969 and saw snow for the first time there. What a thrill it was!

Also tasted cheese fondue for the first time, but, alas, it would have been better if I'd had someone to share it with.

I traveled through Europe alone for 3 months. What an adventure it was!

What about when women change into their bikini tops while baring their breast. I've noticed that a few times this past summer at several lakes throughout Switzerland. No big deal, but as an American, I'm not use to it.

Sorry, no pics. ;-)

I think it's great that it appears that women are more comfortable with their bodies here. But I've seen many prance around locker rooms totally naked and as an American, I still try to change like I'm in junior high gym class. I guess I'll never escape that part of my culture.
