This is a very crowded place on a summer's day or a nice day. It is a really nice place. It is probably best to visit on a weekday and certainly outside of holiday time. There are places to have something to eat and drink....More

Very nice place to take a bath in the Limmat. Sometimes a bit crowded but still easy to find a place if you don't mind sitting close to other people. Extensive facilities for chanching and also a nice Restaurant.

Perfect spot to be outdoors in summer, sunbathing, eating, swimming and enjoy the city in an other way as usual.
