The best pools, rivers and lakes for swimming in Switzerland
Summer is truly underway in Switzerland when people start to take to the rivers, lake “beaches” and badis (public bathing areas at the lake) in their droves. So whether you're looking to swim yourself fit or simply take a refreshing dip, nothing beats a swim in the open air. Luckily, Switzerland has loads of options for front-crawlers and pool-posers alike, many of which are located in the middle of the city, making it easy to beat the heat in minutes.
