The Bains des Paquis is a public quai with swimming and a restaurant. During the summer there are morning concerts every day from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. There is a different group every day with a broad range of styles. The restaurant is open and serves delicious (and affordable) bread and jam, muesli (my favorite), coffee, tea and fresh... More

For just a couple of Swiss Francs, you can head out on this jetty and enjoy a swim in the lake, a meal at the restaurant or enjoy one of the many activities it has to offer (ping pong, water volleyball, climbing wall, etc.). It was an awesome place to escape the heat and people watch all at the same... More

Lovely safe place to bathe in the freshwater lake. There is a cafe area, and bathing huts for changing. Added bonus of early morning concerts at 6am mid July to early August. Definitely worth getting up for!!

Yes, taking the buses at 5.30 A.M. and arriving at the Bains des Paquis , you hear the music and the sun rising rays, you see some people swimming in the lake and the birds and swans. Then you see people sitting on chairs and the steps watching the musicians and swaying or dancing, you feel happy, just being there... More

There are so many activities to do in the Bains that it is hard to start. In the summer, you can go to the beach (for 2 chf) where there are always different activities and on site life-guards. Also, from July to August you can enjoy free coffee/tea while watching concerts under the sunrise. The restaurant is open all year... More

2 Francs for entrance to the jetty. We swam in the lake on a very hot day in July. We ate a nice salad and watched the baby swans swim by. The rocks are a little painful, so watershoes would have been nice to have. One of the most enjoyable moments of my trip!
