  • Reussdelta Islands in Uri

    South Sea? No, that’s Urnersee! The “Lorelei” bathing islands in Flüelen are elevations composed of Gotthard rock, surrounded by turquoise waters and a protected habitat for plants and animals. The perfect place to spend your summer holiday! You can get to Flüelen by train or by boat, or you can drive.

  • Biobadi Biberstein

    Plants are at work here! They purify the swimming pond instead of chlorine. Switzerland’s first “Biobadi” consists of an organic pool, a children’s pool and a large grassy sunbathing area. In addition to the classic Badi meals, the bistro offers two fresh menus every day. Take the bus to Biberstein Post or park your car at the Badi complex.

  • Küsnacht Lido

    The pool known by locals as “Sträme” is located on the gold coast of Lake Zurich. With a long sandy beach, lots of space to sunbathe and a pub, it’s the perfect site from which to admire the panorama. You can get there by boat, train, bike or car.

  • Marzilibad

    With a view of the parliament building, here you can drift in the Aare river or do laps in the swimming pool. Afterwards, enjoy the expansive sunbathing area and beach volleyball courts for an alternative to aquatics. You can get there on foot (directly below the parliament house), but it is also accessible by car.
