Outdoor Swimming Pools

I am hoping that the weather will be great during my visit to Zurich in August. Are there any outdoor swimming pools in and around Zurich that are accessible without the use of a car?

They are in plenty. Go to the following link and scroll to the bottom to check outdoor swimming options in Zürich City. The link is unfortunately in German.


Alternatively, google "freibaeder zuerich" and you will get a list of pools with their address. All of them are accessible with public transport.

You don't even need to go to a payable public swimming pool. There is the splendid lake which you can use for free! Access is possible from various places in the parks around the lake shore and the water is clean. You are welcome to place your towel on the lawn, take a dip in the lake and have a picnic while watching the people passing. Often there are people playing music, soccer or fresbee - the athmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
