Swimming Pools in Zurich  – “Zurich Badis”

One of the best things about living in Zurich in the Summer has to be swimming in the Badis (the outdoor pools). Not only are there plenty of them but they are all slightly different. Some offer snacks and drinks, other offer meals too. The facilities vary widely and they all have their own special character and charm. Try them out and find out which one is your favourite!

So here is a list of the outdoor Badis in Zurich  with the descriptions in English, so that you’re all ready when the rays come out. At the bottom you’ll find a list with the details of all the Swimming Pools in the whole of the Canton of Zurich – so you have plenty of choice!
