A chocolate-scented swim in Lake Zurich? Don't mind if we do...
Kilchberg badi is located about 20 minutes by train or car from central Zurich on the Zurichsee. It also happens to be right next to the Lindt & Sprungli factory so provides a feast for the senses as you enjoy the cool, clear waters of the lake while wafted with the fresh chocolate smell. There's a large grassy area to spread out on (note: plastic-backed picnic rugs are not allowed) and lake access is via steps, a waterslide or from a rocky "beach" area. If the lake is too chilly, there's a man-made outdoor pool that's heated to the temperature of the cholcolate factory, 22°C to 26°C. Food is provided by Hiltl and is the usual delicious vegetarian buffet. And there's a nice kids area with a paddling pool and play equiment. On warm summer weekends this place is mobbed with families and the small carpark fills up fast, so it's worth arriving early to stake out a spot.
