Once again the 4,500 tickets for the event, which had gone on sale the previous Wednesday sold out within just minutes. The Limmatschwimmen is proving to be one of the most popular Summer events in Zurich.

Unlike many previous years, the event took place on the first scheduled date and did not need to be postponed. Although the forecast had been a bit iffy, on the day there was a mix of sunshine and clouds and everyone looked happy to be jumping into the refreshing waters of the Limmat.
