Swimming and Minigolf
at the Dolder Bad Zurich
Special BBQ, Minigolf & Swim on Saturdays
Dolder Bad Zurich
Zurich had a great number of outdoor swimming pools (see here) and Badis. Most are run by Stadt Zurich, but some are private like this one at the Dolder Sports area up near the Dolder. The Dolder Bad is actually quite famous as it was the first swimming pool in Switzerland to have a wave machine. Sadly there are no longer crashing waves to be found here, as many years ago the machine fell out of action and they have been unable to repair it. However, there are two great swimming pools at the Dolder Bad, one for adults and older children and one for tots and young families.
Situated in a large grassy park there is plenty of space for families to enjoy nature and have a swim. There are loads of trees to providing shade and a beautiful backdrop, and there is a relaxing laid back vibe about the whole place.
One great attraction they also offer, which is popular with adults and children alike is Mini Golf. Their Mini Golf course is nestled in a shady part of the park (with a number of decorative cows) and consists of 15 holes. Some them are quite tough and this little course is not to be sneezed at!
We had great fun playing here.
Saturday Night Barbecue & Mini Golf Offer
A really nice offer is the Barbecue, Mini Golf and Swim Offer. The barbecue takes place under a tented area where tables and chairs are laid out.
As well as playing mini golf and going for a swim you get a great “all you can eat” barbecue buffet with a choice of grilled meats, salads and dips.
It takes place every Saturday in June, July and August from 6pm – 10pm.
The price includes entrance to the Dolder Bad and costs:
CHF 49 for adults
CHF 39 for children from 6 – 13 years old
It’s a perfect Saturday evening family activity – and great for couples and families as well.
And every Saturday in June, July and August it’s open till 10pm – so you can even go for a late swim too!

How To Get There
To get there you can go via public transport with the Dolderbahn. We took it from Römerhof, but if you go by car there is parking close by and from the top you simply follow the signs to the Mini Golf.
