Where to Swim in Zurich

It’s sunny? Wait. Are you really in Zurich? Check. Double check. Yes? Great, then it’s time to go swimming! How many cities, after all, feature lakes and rivers to swim in, neither of which pose major health risks? Below are The Frau’s three favorite Zurich swim spots.

To swim with the Swiss swans in Lake Zurich, head to Bad Utoquai. It’s open rain or shine until September 22 from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. It features separate men’s and women’s-only sunning terraces, two shallow areas for non-swimmers, as well as a diving board, which for reasons The Frau is still determining, is only on the men’s side.

If you’re a woman and you’re more about sunning than swimming, then the Frauenbad is for you. Women only by day and co-ed bar by night, this Limmat River swimming area features a 31-meter long “play” area and a 33-meter swimming area. Or just do what the locals do—bring your MacBook Pro and type away while topless.

Just because the sun was out at the beginning of this post, does not mean it still is now. So for days that turn out less than spectacular, head to Hallenbad City. This newly renovated 50-meter pool is open daily from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. It features four different lanes for appropriate swimming seriousness, which The Frau greatly appreciates.

Prices and Entry

All Zurich swimming areas cost CHF 7 per entry for adults, but The Frau recommends the 12-pass (ask for a Kombi12), which gives you 12 entries for the price of 10. It is valid at all Zurich pools (and some ice rinks too). You can also purchase a yearly swim pass for CHF 220.
